Hi Guys,

I have a query:

My name is Hrushit - I am a qualified Chartered Accountant (equivalent to the US CPA) from India; and have been working with Deloitte India for around 2.5 years now.

I am looking to take the GMAT in August, 2014 and prepare for admission to a decent Top 20 B-school in the US (since I prefer 2 year programs more).

Now, I was told by a few relatives that jobs post graduation in the US are very difficult to come by for students without a green card, and that a degree from the US may not hold relevance for US employers, if you don't have a green card.

US employers will not encourage employment of such immigrants, and it'd be easier, instead, to do an MBA from India. Is that true? Could any of you who know about this put in a few words? It'd be really helpful to me for my future/career planning.

Thanks a ton!

Cheers, :)

Jobs in IB and corporate roles varies from company to company. Most consulting firms provide sponsorship for work authorization. Start-ups, PE, and smaller firms in generally usually don't.

Hey, I have 3 years of work experience and planning to pursue MBA. Before I enrol into any institute, I would like to know the current placement scenario for an MBA graduate in India as well as abroad. Can anyone please guide me?

Hi, The annual fee you pay for an Indian MBA is less than the one you pay for an MBA abroad. Studying abroad also includes other expenditure of accommodation and food and other personal expenses.  But the international exposure received from the degree abroad is well recognised globally. Speaking of ROI doing an MBA in a foreign country where the earning power is high will help you recover your money faster than recovering it in India. Provided that you do your MBA and get the subsequent placement from the top 25 colleges!

Ohh, so do you mean that a Bschool abroad will provide better job opportunities than the ones in India? Do Indian B schools also offer placements abroad?

No I am merely saying that your earning power will be more abroad because you will be earning in foreign currency and repaying your loans in Indian rupees. There are a few instances of companies giving the students placement opportunities in their foreign campuses. If you want to do your MBA from India and get placed abroad you could check the placement records. Similarly there are other colleges like S P Jain School of Global Management, XLRI, Institute of Management Technology who have international campuses. The advantage of studying in such colleges is that you may have the option of getting placed in India also. I hope it is clear enough now?
