Americans applying to LBS/INSEAD [#permalink] New post 20 Jan 2013, 14:42
Question. So I'm an American thinking of applying to LBS round 3 and INSEAD round 1 for january intake. I've heard that U.K. has changed its visa restrictions, making it harder for non-EU citizens to get jobs afterwards. Is this really true? If so, is this true for all of Europe or just the U.K.? I want to make sure that I have all the relevant facts before deciding to apply to the european programs.

Thanks.

Each EU countries has their own visa rule.

Recent visa rule change was for UK, that too mainly the HSMP route was closed, then again, that came with some concessions!!

If you look a bit deeper inside the surface then there is a different story. The overall job market is very tight in EU, including UK. Naturally, locals are preferred during these kinds of tough time. It is not about the rule change, it is about the sentiment!!

having said that, LBS, INSEAD will be safe, provided your skills are transferable.

Hi Shawshank,

I truly agree. Please go ahead with the LBS and INSEAD application. Click http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool to try your chances in b-schools(s). You must also prepare well for the interview, as it is the decisive factor for being admitted in b-school. To know more about LBS and INSEAD interview tips, click http://bit.ly/XQVp4s .

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have. You can even PM your number to discuss over your profile and selection of b-school(s).

Best,
AK
