B-Schools Retaining Legal Counsel for International Students [#permalink] New post 10 Sep 2007, 13:15
I'm compiling a list of MBA programs that have retained legal counsel (immigration attorneys) to assist their international students and their potential employers in navigating the complex U.S. work visa system.

Securing a work permit beyond the MBA internship & 1-year Optional Practical Training after graduation can be a significant challenge to foreigners. This is because many companies perceive the visa application process to be expensive, complicated, and time consuming. Indeed, many choose to avoid the process altogether, adopting a policy of "we are unable to sponsor international candidates..." - I'm sure many a foreign student has run into that (I have).

I don't work for any lobbying organization or special-interest group. I'm just a law abiding, tax-paying foreigner ;-) hoping to spend more than 1 year working America. As I continue to research programs I hope to be able to add more schools to the list. I also hope this is not an inappropriate topic [mods please delete it if it is]. I know the subject of immigration and foreign labor is often the subject of a heated debate. I don't want to cause any trouble, just provide some resources and helpful tips to my fellow international applicants... cheers~
