Looks like this forum post is heading towards its slow death, since the AGSM 2017-18 group has been created.

If there's anyone else who has been admitted or is keenly looking to get through AGSM, he or she can be a part of our whats-app group.

Me or shibin can be dropped a request in a personal message.

Bubye!

Hello everyone!

We have decided to restrict our whatsapp group to only those who have got an official admission from the school.

All applicants and waitlist candidates are welcome to post their questions on the thread itself.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused!

Hello all,

In your opinion, how important is it to have / sort a PR before pursuing an MBA in Australia? - for (a) consulting aspirants, (b) non consulting aspirants?

On a related note, do you think potential employers value a subclass 485 2yr post study visa? If one chooses to do the extra 6 months at agsm?

Looking forward to some candid thoughts. Best!

HI ARKAy

Having a PR before studying in OZ has a lot of benefits when weighed against study visa.

Employers tend not to consider pass-outs without a PR, unless they sponsor your visa(but that's exceptional)

Second point: yes you become eligible for a temporary work visa if you extend your study duration at AGSM

But then you would end up paying almost the same( or may be more) by extending your studies.

So all in all, if you have a PR, life is easy. If not then there are challenges.

Thanks Abhishek for your quick revert - appreciate it. Furthermore, please correct me if I am wrong in my understanding as below:

This PR thing seems a bit tricky to me - not sure if all types of PR will actually be useful to keep us afloat with good jobs. For eg, if someone gets a subclass 189, then its perfect. But alternatively, if one gets a subclass 190 for say NT or SA etc, then I am not sure if its that worthwhile because of the limited type/# of job opportunities beyond NSW or VIC. And to make matters worse, one can't launch a 190 PR for any other state if one is already in Australia and living in Sydney. So despite having positive skill assessment, one gets stuck if its not open in NSW while pursuing the AGSM MBA.

So the above is the PR side of things as per me. And on the other hand, if post study work visa (485) doesn't appear "sexy" to big employers (who generally expect longer stints, and not 1-2yr gigs), then one is doomed!

Grr..this whole residency issue will make some loose their hair :P

What sector you're in currently?

Check SOL(skilled occupation list) at DIBP(dept of immi n border protection) website.
if you fall in 3 or more years of exp bracket, high chances your Skill assessment would be positive.
After positive skill assessment, its a matter of only 3-4 months.

I didn't look at VClass 190 because I was going for 189.

In my case, my wife(from IT) was principal applicant, and we received our PR (189) within 5 months

Abhishek : Oh nice :) 5 months is pretty neat - Congratulations!

Well I have ~8yrs experience, most of which is in Strategy/management consulting. I have led and executed Fortune 500 advisory engagements across Asia. But unfortunately "management consulting" doesn't come under 189, and only in a couple of 190s (SA etc..). My wife comes from an HR background, so similar story. Still seeing if something can be worked out..

Hello Karan and Arkay,

Congratulations on securing the interview! I had my interview in Round 1 and it was a face-to-face 35 mins semi-formal interview at the AGSM cafeteria with the program director Clinton Free. Some of the questions are covered in the questions list but these were the ones he asked me on that day:
1) Why AGSM?
2) Why is now a good time to do an MBA?
3) Describe your leadership role at your workplace.
4) What do you want to achieve in the future?
5) Will you be working in Australia in the future?

Questions were straight forward overall but most of the interview time were spent on questions 3 and 4. Hopefully it helps. Goodluck guys!

Regard,
Shane
