Lately with the uncertainity of getting an H1B visa after graduating from a typical US B school, I've slowly given up on applying to US B Schools. I would like your suggestions on good B Schools outside of US like in Canada, Europe or any other developed nations. I'm an applicant from India .
Thanks

Best way to answer this is to know exactly what you want to get out off in an MBA. For instance, if you want to work in the US, it makes the most sense to apply to a business school in the US.

You also shouldn't restrict yourself to developed countries only. Some B-Schools in emerging economies may be even better than most B-School in a very specific niche market/function and can give you better opportunities since it attracts people interested in that field (i.e. Middle-east, eastern europe, Southeast Asia).

Well the dream is to obviously work in the US but due to uncertainities involved I'm looking for other options as well. Can you please suggest me colleges in these countries which you are talking about ?

The language becomes a serious barrier when you go outside of US, Canada, Australia, and the UK. Canada has the most relaxed post MBA visa rules of the bunch, with graduates getting a 3 yr work permit (and I believe just on 2 yr programs). Schools like IESE, IE, ESADE, CEIBS, HKUST, NUS, RSM, HEC, SDA etc. are great, but if you don't speak the local language it is very likely employers will take someone who does + fluent English, over you, unless you command a very unique/in demand skillset.

Degroote at McMaster is a good one in Canada and being in North America might (slim chance) help with working in the U.S. Or maybe you'll discover that you'd rather stay in Canada. I lived there for four years and it's better than the U.S. in some ways.

Outside of EU/US options are much more limited. IIM's, NUS, and INSEAD singapore pop into mind.

These are always solid choices. I would add IMD, Oxford, and Cambridge to the list as well. For schools in Canada, Schulich School of Business has a really great reputation, so they might be worth checking out.

Hello,

I took my GMAT today, and scored 740 (Q49, V41).
I have completed my masters in engineering, and my UG GPA is 8.42/10, and PG GPA is 9.37/10.
I have 18 months of work experience in engineering design (construction), however, I wish to change my industry, and by the time I enter b-school, I would have approx. 3 years of experience. (Age 25)

I wish to work/settle in Europe (particularly Germany - No solid German language skills yet, but working on that), thus, I was aiming for following programs:

1. FSFM (MBA) : Primarily because of location
2. WHU (MBA) : Because required work experience is only 2 years, 3 years may give me little room, + Popularity
3. Manheim (MBA) : Top in Germany (also long shot, given the irrelevant and bare minimum work experience)

However, through multiple blog posts and experiences, I have come to an understanding that the firms in Germany are unwilling to hire the students without relevant job experience, and without fluency in German language. But these blog posts are much older, and newer posts are difficult to find.

Considering the job market as present, (and future, since I will be starting in 2019), how difficult is it to secure the job in Germany post MBA, for international student with no management experience and limited fluency in German language?

Is it better for me to aim for MiM in HEC Paris or LBS, who admit students with no experience or relatively low experience (given that I do not have any management related experience, I will mostly be considered as fresher candidate), with the possibility of getting a job in general management or operation management in tech. industry? (Basically, I will try to keep myself away from IB and Consulting)

My advice to you is to post your situation above in a separate post to get more advice.
