I submitted in early bird in November. I have 7 working years in Marketing Consumers Product in Wipro Unza Vietnam, I apply by GRE (rather low 304, and will retake soon in February). How about you?

I have a few questions.

1. How long does the UConn admissions team take to respond to the application?

2. How are the career opportunities for international students?

It might take between 2 weeks and a month. I am, however, speculating here as I am using my own experience and I am not sure about the majority of the cases.


Answering to your 2nd question, I would honestly say that opportunities are not that great. Having said that, I want to mention that it's not due to UCONN's brand or rankings. I have attended multiple conferences while in the US and I have met with the MBA students from Pittsburgh, Texas A&M, Texas Christian, Temple, Penn State, BU, UIUC, Rochester etc.
All international students regardless of the school are having issues. What we are hearing from companies is that they like the students but MBA level jobs are usually a huge investment on their side and they don't want to invest their time and money in people who might not get a visa. The companies are interested in the long-term relationships, so even STEM OPT is not enough for them. At the same time, compared to 2018, 2019 seems better in terms of employment prospects, as the employers see that nothing has really been done on H1B except for the talking about doing something. I guess it's going to be better this year.

Thank you bakavoice. Your information is helpful.

I will have the interview with Michael Bozzi & Moira Rosek in 15th Feb. I'm rather worried because UConn is my top choice. As your experience, may you share the tips or any "special" questions you got in the last MBA interview?
