Query regrading b-school selection and gmat [#permalink] New post 03 Jul 2013, 10:18

I am a software developer with 1.9 years of Work experience in India.I want to go for Master in Business Administration(MBA) in consullting,finance or general management.
I am really interested to work long term at US,Canada or Europe.Regarding Europe visa restrictions have gone up and I think they don't sponser work permit.
At US also I have heard about new regulatory norms being implemented which really emphasize that getting jobs is really tough out there too.
Don't know much about Canada but there visa restriction is less as compared to US or Europe.
My questions is " Despite what the job market scenario out there is, should I go for GMAT and try to get into top B-schools ,considering I want to work long time in there only and not in India"?
If I should then-:
2.) How are Canada's B-schools like Rotman and Schulich for consulting and general management ?Also going through the US b-schools Texas Mays B-school seemed to me good in terms of cost and class size.Don't know much about it's alumni network and average placements for international students.I am not looking at the Ivy league as they will incur a huge cost which I really cannot bear.

Thanking in advance for your replies.

Hi Rishab - you're looking at this problem holistically which is great. There's lots of variables to consider and the visa issues, post-grad employment, and tuition are all important. That's nice to see!!

Nobody can really answer your question about whether you should go for it - it's obviously a very personal decision and there's so many unknowns about job markets and all that. You're right that Canada is more flexible in some regards, there's somewhat less competition for Indians applying to those schools you mentioned and they're both great MBA programs that can completely change the trajectory of your life and help you build a great new career in a new field. They're very competitive as well but not as much as some of the more famous brand name bschools that people think of. So it's nice to see that you're targeting some realistic choices.

This is not a trivial project that you will be embarking on - the GMAT and the applications are very intense, both in terms of time required to do them well, and cost, and also the emotional ride - it's a lot of ups and downs! But also totally worth it when you see what awaits you. So we would encourage you to go for it if this is a dream that you have. The growth, transformation, and opportunity that come out of bschool can be tremendous, and so worth it. It's also a lot of fun!

We recognize that we're not really answering your question but it's hard to know where to go with it... If you have something more specific that you care to pose to us as a followup we're happy to tackle it for you!
