I am indian resident and i desire to join ivy league MBA program in USA (top 15 ranked only).

I want to ask present students and experts regarding job prospects for foreign nationals and availability of H-1B visa sponsor companies at top schools. Do all students willing to stay in US get an opportunity for the same or some or few have to depart to their home countries because of non availability of jobs/visa.

I desire to take a moving job with international mobility or to settle in north america/ europe, so its an important consideration for me. If there is considerable chance of being sent back to home country for want of visa , I would skip the US schools and apply for Canada ones.

Are there any European countries where visa requirements are easy , I can plan to apply to schools in spain, italy or france. ?

Anyone having some knowledge in subject , please share your thoughts.

I think this post hasn't got any revert because it is not the right thread to put this query :-)

The H1b visa is difficult to get nowadays because of the lottery system. A lot of graduates have to return home because they don't win in the lottery. The OPT option will allow you to work for a year WITHOUT visa sponsorship. The next year you will need a H1B. There are 20,000 H1Bs allocated to Masters degree holders, including MBA. For the last two years, the immigration authorities have been holding a lottery for the 20,000 visas as the number of applications has exceeded the number of visas available.

If you go to a top 15 school, the H1b visa is not an issue. You will will get. It is not as tough as some comments above indicate. Plus in the long run, the top 15 schools will give you all the mobility you want, since most of the top firms here have huge international operations.
When everything is said and done, if the school is a top 15, the H1b visa should not be an issue. Further, for your prospective schools, check out their international student placements rates....that should tell you all you need.

Agreed with your view regarding mobility...however, with the lottery system, everyone is at par...whether he / she is a graduate of the no.1 B school or the no.100 B school. Getting a sponsorship is not difficult if one is from one of the top B schools; however, whether the person is able to stay in the US or not depends upon his/her winning in the lottery i.e. it is purely luck based

True on H1B lottery system. I know great ppl but couldnt make it due to the lottery. It is pretty much based on luck. If you have a bad luck year, good luck.

If a student finds an H1B sponsor before graduating, say the firm he/she did his internship at, can he apply for H1B right after graduating? And thus use OPT in case visa is denied during the lottery and have a second attempt next year?

Expert's post
I think, this is something of REAL CONCERN that Internationals should watch out for while planning to apply to US b-schools.

I'd request some our admission consulting partners and/or current students from GMAT Club to shed some light on this!

Hopefully we'll have some invaluable feedback from 'em!

Theorizer has raised a very interesting point. The only issue I think might be the sponsoring company's reluctance to spend money twice on applications, in case the application is rejected in the first year...maybe someone who has been through this process can enlighten us further?
Also, those students who are unaware of this lottery mess might feel that they are losing out a year on Opt. So, they might feel that they will be able to work in the US for only six years instead of seven (considering two h1b renewals)...of course staying in the US after the expiry of the OPT will itself be contingent on winning in the lottery....
