Georgetown - International Student - Placements? [#permalink]

New post 28 Dec 2017, 04:31
Hey,

I'm from India, and recently got admitted to Georgetown. As an international student looking to work in the US post MBA, I wanted to get some perspective on the job scenario in the US after Georgetown? I understand that it is difficult given visa sponsorships etc., but what kind of consulting companies recruit in Georgetown, how many people get placed approximately?

For reference, I'm looking to work in strategy/ management consulting, but happy to pivot to other career tracks as well. Can anyone recommend other opportunities for international students graduating from GTown?

I also have an offer from Sauder (UBC), but feel like Georgetown has better ranking and is a better brand globally. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

Hey mbacandidate2020 ,

Welcome to GMATClub and congratulations for both of your admits. :)

The best answer if someone could give will the current international students. I would prefer reaching out to current students of both the schools (especially Indians) and understand their views on the same. You may also reach out to lots of Alums.

Basically what I mean is reach out to lots of students and gather their views.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted on what you decide. This may help others in future. :)

Most of Consulting companies recruit to work with federal agencies which demands that you are American citizen.

Mo2men is spot on!

As an international student one place you would want to avoid is Washington.

Here is a quote from one of moderators(PiyushK) who did his MBA in Washington DC -->



Quote:
A piece of advise for internationals give last priority to schools based in Washington DC. 99% jobs and internships are in federal sector and internationals are not eligible for them (even in companies like E&Y, BAH, PWC, Deloitte, TCS, etc.) , and I hope nobody would be interested in unpaid internships. Ground reality is quite different; contact current international students to understand the challenges they are meeting. As per my knowledge story is just opposite in schools located in commercial hubs such as Chicago, Boston, North California and New York, so keep your focus on such similar commercial locations.


My 2 cents ->
In case of international applicants -> What I feel is a lower ranked school in Texas/California/Atlanta/ looks more viable than McDonough.
There are two reasons to go to DC -->
1) You get a free ride and don't end up getting any money from other schools.Take the money and run as fast as you can yo.IF YOU ARE an international => ALWAYS GO WITH THE MONEY!
2) You are a domestic applicant. Then McDonough makes so much sense. Who wouldn't want to study in the Georgetown right ?
