Hello,

I need some info about the roles in general management. The scope of general management can be very broad.
One of the defined ways to get into a general management role is through a leadership/ rotation program. What are the possible exit options out of this program?
As an international willing to work in US post MBA, what kind of challenges one should expect while seeking to get into such roles? Is there any industry which do not prefer internationals for such general management roles?

Hi scarecrow,

The range of GM positions post MBA is quite broad. You could be doing anything from a Leadership Development rotational program to a line-management position at firms as diverse as General Electric, John Deere, or a financial institution such as American Express.

For Leadership Development programs, the exit option is usually a line-management role within that company. You might also be able to use that experience to apply for other roles with companies in that industry.

One of the challenges for many of these positions is that most do not sponsor international students for visas. It's not that they don't want to have international students working for them - rather it's that many have policies that they do not want to have to pay and complete the red-tape to apply to visas. As an international student looking to stay in the US, your best employment options are with the management consulting firms and the investment banks

I would say the more specific and the more nice you can get, the better.
Finding a broad job is similar to chasing a school of fish vs. if you have a certain goal in mind, it is easy to communicate it, and makes your candidacy stronger.

P.S. People tend to shy away from folks who say "I need any management job - help me!" Consider the other side of it - e.g. "I am looking for a career in men's fashion" or "I would love to help a retail chain to improve sales in existing stores or improve xxx" or "I am interested in Sports Team management, in particular basketball"

- Oil/Gas (Chevron, Exxon)
- Chemicals (Dow, Dupont, BASF)
- Agribiz (ADM, Cargill)

Read this for Chevron/Exxon; riverripper-s-guide-to-energy-76849.html

I too am interested in Dow/Dupont/BASF. Although I would think that they would have a preference for a chem engineering or related undergrad.
