Hi

I had my interview on 22nd Feb and although I am waiting for admit, I believe that getting an interview means that you 'almost' have an admit, so I am assuming that I have been selected (still keeping my fingers crossed as anything can happen)
My query is regarding the employment and job scenario after graduation especially with my profile.

Briefly about me, I have approx 6.5 years of work exp in Process excellence, NPD, Product management and Project management & planning (excluding the time I did my own start up and time spent on full time MBA). The thing is I don't have any direct relevant experience in supply chain (my aim was doing MBA was to move to operations & SCM but couldn't due to various reasons). I will be 31 in May. My queries are

1. Is coming to USA rt now risky considering the policy changes by Trump admin regarding issuance of H1B. Is it true that people who are doing master's in USA will benefit?
2. Are companies hiring foreign nationals?
3. I don't have any direct experience in supply chain so will that count against me during job hunt given my age is slightly on higher side? How much does age play role recruitment in USA, given I want to shift my career towards supply chain?
4. (Although I am not expecting it), will it be possible for me to join companies in mid-senior level or in some managerial capacity?
5. Does internship play an important part during recruitment? Will programs in other universities having internship will have an edge over Ross? I spoke with a Ross MSCM graduate and he applied Ross in 2016 bcz the program had internship while MIT didn't although he had admits from both
6. Do students go to any graduate or rotational programs in supply chain companies especially those who don't have any direct experience?

I had my interview with Ms. Mackenzie Marosy. During our Q&A session, she was stressing on the point that 'nothing is guaranteed' and overall picture is risky (although she did not mention this explicitly, it was my take away from interaction with her, maybe bcz of my profile). She did mention that I have many transferable skills etc, but I felt a bit unconvinced if the whole MSCM is right step for me, esp in USA.

Thanks in advance

Hey Ishan! Hope you had a nice interview. I have been admitted to MSCM class of 2020. My answers to your questions would be based on my research before I decided to join Ross.

1. Is coming to USA rt now risky considering the policy changes by Trump admin regarding issuance of H1B. Is it true that people who are doing master's in USA will benefit?
Consulting companies sponsor H1B. Typically core scm companies such as auto companies refrain from sponsoring, so they generally may not be very welcoming to international. Having said that, there are lot of companies who sponsor H1B. Also, yes, if the proposed immigration policies come through, ther would be roughly 5000 more H1B visas for masters students.
2. Are companies hiring foreign nationals?
Yes. You can check the employment data. However, it is old (2017).
3. I don't have any direct experience in supply chain so will that count against me during job hunt given my age is slightly on higher side? How much does age play role recruitment in USA, given I want to shift my career towards supply chain?
People have come from IT backgrounds as well. It wont hold so much against you as long as you are able to nail your recruitment interview.
4. (Although I am not expecting it), will it be possible for me to join companies in mid-senior level or in some managerial capacity?
No idea about this.
5. Does internship play an important part during recruitment? Will programs in other universities having internship will have an edge over Ross? I spoke with a Ross MSCM graduate and he applied Ross in 2016 bcz the program had internship while MIT didn't although he had admits from both
Even I had this doubt. Internships are very important for both, the student and companies to gauge each other's compatibility. I am not sure why they had this removed. But they have replaced it with a Consulting Project (known as Supply Chain Consulting Studio) in which students in team consult on a live project. Not as real as an internship, but atleast something.
6. Do students go to any graduate or rotational programs in supply chain companies especially those who don't have any direct experience?
Not sure about this, but I don't think so.

In conclusion, make an informed decision before you come.
