Thank you for your query.
Considering your academic background and non-traditional career history (which is looked upon very positively, as you'd be making the MBA class profile diverse and rich), I'm tempted to recommend a top, internationally renowned school for you... if only you were a bit more experienced. To stand a good chance of admission into most top foreign MBA schools, you need at least 3 years
of experience. If you can wait for a few more years, that'll result in a more mature and meaningful MBA experience for you.
Also, it is not absolutely necessary to look at a specialized MBA in the Oil and Gas sector. Most top international and Indian schools don't offer this specialization, and that means you'll have to look for a second-tier school. You'll be taking some risk doing so. The quality of your fellow classmates, even the faculty, infrastructure, career opportunities post-MBA can be poor.
I'm assuming that you wish to continue in the Energy sector post-MBA. May I ask what your motivation, expectation from the MBA course is? Oil & Gas is not a typical MBA-demanding sector (unlike Finance, Consulting, FMCG Marketing, etc). If you're looking at better people management capabilities, you can consider XLRI, TISS
. If your budget is large (over Rs. 20 lakhs), consider the ESSEC, France
. It has an MBA program suited for less experienced professionals.
Coming to your original question about MBA in Energy sector, there do exist a few options for you (listed below). But, I'd really recommend a general MBA program from the IIMs or other top international schools. Do post more information reg. your motivation for the course, post-MBA career goals, budget, and I may be able to guide you better.
