Don't know about Australian Schools. Does anyone know?



AGSM, MBS are the best business schools in Australia. I think both of them are equally world standard business institutes.

For those who want to work in finance and in Europe after graduation, would it be LBS, Oxford and Insead (no particular order) the best schools or are there others also?

I know some people working in London who graduated from US schools, is it "easy" to work in London after an US school?


Relatively easy... Most top consulting firms and banks come to US Schools to hire for their Non US (including UK) offices. Actually if u get MBA from a top US School, UK automatically qualifies u for the HSMP program; so visa is less of an issue too!

Unless you really want to work in Australia, I wouldn't try for the Aussie schools. They pale compared to the top tier US/European schools.

Working in London is a cinch if you graduate from a top US school -

1) As a US citizen, the British will roll out the red carpet for you.
2) For the plebians (in the eyes of the British government, if you're not American or from the EU, you qualify as a plebian) who need visas, you'll qualify for the HSMP Program, although I've heard that the British Government is playing dirty games with this program. A judge rapped them on the knuckles but I'd supect that they'd still be at it. Google the story. I've added a couple of links below.

http://www.workpermit.com/news/2007-05- ... plaint.htm

http://www.helium.com/tm/105046/admit-q ... -happening

In the second link, start about half-way down.

I hope this helps you guys.

I heard that the HSMP scheme has been retired. A top MBA does not guarantee a work permit anymore. Check www.workpermit.com for details.

I thought if you graduate from a US school and earn an MBA it's usually enough points to get the work permit? Although I'd be surprised if they do not group by nationality like the schools?

An MBA is worth 35 points under the new system, and so is any other masters' degree. I forgot the details, but in short, you need more than 35. What's really annoying is that a major number of points is calculated based on your annual earnings in the past 15 months or so - so if you spent a year studying you're screwed.

It appears though that this point based system is different from the usual work permit procedure, where the employer has to go through all the hassle. I have no idea what criteria they use in that case - does anyone here have experience with this?

Indeed, the HSMP has been suspended for a tiered system. Details can be found here: http://www.workpermit.com/uk/uk-immigra ... grants.htm

In my opinion, it should be relatively easy for LBS grads to find job through this scheme and the real hurdle is to gather the paperwork for the very bureaucratic process (and expensive one! approx. 800p).
