Oxford Said for a job in the US [#permalink] New post 06 May 2013, 23:47
Got accepted to Oxford's Said Business School, but dinged in 2 US schools I applied to.

I am from Eastern Europe and willing to work in the US (finance/industry) post-MBA. Right now I need a visa to work there if this matters. Would be grateful for advice on whether Oxford Said is reputable enough in the US to help me find a job there after graduation. Should I stick with Said or apply to an American school next year for that purpose?

Any advice will be appreciated!
Thank you in advance! :)

1.) Go through the placement report.
2.) Talk to current students/alumni.
3.) Talk to career office.

Personal Opinion: Re-apply to US schools next year.

Good luck.

28% of last year's graduates went to North America which is not bad.

Thank you for your opinion :)

So how exactly do you expect to get a job in the US if you don't have a visa?
Do you have expertise so niche/special that companies are willing to sponsor you without knowing you?
If not then you're - sorry - just some guy who wants a job in the US while many others with US citizenship or work permit can do the same job as well and they don't require that respective employer to sponsor them.

A US degree will help but is no guarantee either...

Well, not when 32% of the class is from North America.

I'm not saying it is not doable. But, I'm pretty certain it will require good amount of effort and quite a bit of luck. The current students would be the best to talk to, really.

It’s not impossible, but it will be VERY difficult to get a job in the US, if you do not have US work authorization. If you want to end up in the US, your best bet is to work in the finance industry in London a bit, and then transfer over to one of the US offices. After you are at the US office, figure out a way to stay here permanently.

If you are set on working in the US, you should go to an American school next year.
