Initially when I heard about University of Petroleum and Energy Studies Distance Learning I was too curious about knowing more about the institutes and the courses offered by this institute. I researched more and more about this institute as I had various doubts regarding this institute like Is Upes a good university? Is Upes a government or private university? Then I got to know that University of Petroleum and Energy Studies is a first public private university in Uttarakhand managed by Hydrocarbons Education & Research Society and in the emerging ears the university had stood tall in terms of educating the aspirants to the fullest. I was very much interested to do MBA in Oil and Gas Management trough Distance learning mode but What is MBA in Oil and Gas Management? Is MBA in oil and gas useful? Were the questions I always had. ?Then I go to know that this course is all about exploration to the retailing of petroleum and petroleum products across the entire hydrocarbon value chain which has high value in terms of career.
