Re: MBA in Oil and Gas industry sector

Dear Sir,
I have been working with Bureau Veritas (Inspection agency) in Dubai as a Surveyor / Inspector for the last 4 years & I am a Mechanical Engineer by qualification. But I didn't have a very good academic track record in my engineering, plus i don't have any managerial or business experience, since mine is a field job. I have few professional qualifications like Welding Inspector from The Welding Institute, UK & some NDT qualifications related to my profession & approval for inspections from some oil companies like Saudi Aramco.

Still I wish to apply to institutes specializing in Oil & Gas, I am very keen to apply to Robert Gordon University as it is located in Aberdeen which in turn is a hub for Oil & Gas sector.
What do you think are my chances to gain a entry into RGU? Besides, do you have any idea about their placements as I would be leaving my permanent job to do a full time mba & would be looking for a new job.
Awaiting your reply.

Thanks & Rgds,


Applying to Robert Gordon University

A lot of factors such as clarity and quality of your essays, test scores, extra-curricular activities play role in the admission process. Work hard to get a good GMAT score, and spend time on your essays to increase your chances of admission. Check the typical admitted student profile, and see if you fit in, with your level of experience and test scores.

Ask for the last year's placement report to the admission committee of the school. They may send it to you by email.

The best course of action is to pay up the bond amount and get the experience letter from the employer, or get them to waive the due amount citing convincing and true reasons for your behavior (if you can do this, you don't need an MBA!).

Other option is to represent the facts as they are, to the school. I don't believe not having the relieving letter would debar you from applying. Don't be tempted to present yourself as 1 year experienced candidate, and hide your history. What you did in the period between your graduation and joining the second employer, would be a very obvious question in your interview.


I agreed with you. Any way, your points of view make me thinking about some thing for my project.

Pls try to keep posting. Tks and best regards
