I have recently been admitted to MIB program of Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy. In general, what are your views about the program? I am really worried about the visa problems in US. I will complete my study with a loan (tuition approx. $110k). Whatever I have saved will be exhausted on housing + boarding. What would you guys suggest? Should I go ahead and attend? or Settle on the program with peace of mind.

First off -> Merry Christmas mate.

Secondly, If MIB is what I think it is (master of international business) I would advise you against doing that program.
Honestly speaking, the school is really bad.Not like bad-bad but like really bad-really bad.Hell,its pathetic.Why did you choose it in the first place?
Why on god's green earth would you invest your hard earned money in a MIB at some ****-piped school.I hope you reconsider.
OR you are super rich and couldn't care less about $110 Grand.
But seriously Tufts?

Thirdly, any program you choose the risk would still be there. But the better the school, the more the chances of getting that dream internship.

How bad is Fletcher ?
On a scale of 1 to Hult -> It is Hult and probably worst!
AVOID!!

Hi people,

Does anyone know whether the 2018 batch students in US are facing extreme challenges finding a full time job? I believe the hiring at most b schools is already started.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Situation has gotten worse. Amazon is on a hiring freeze and no firms are coming to recruit students below top 25 universities. Even the top ones except harvard standford wharton are facing difficulties. Even internship interviews are not happening. Some universities have started to send memos for international students to sign requiring them to go back to their home countries upon graduation.

This is so very clearly untrue. I'm not sure why the poster had this response...

1. Do you really think Amazon out of all the companies out there would have a hiring freeze right now?
2. No firms come to below Top 25 universities? Says who? Any evidence? You know there a lot of local firms who would gladly take someone from the local university rite?
3. What memos are these that you're referring to? Anything that would "require" people to go back to their home countries would be between the government and the student. The college may notify the student of these laws/policies, but I don't think they would require them to sign anythng....

Where are you getting all this information from?

The latest news is that many companies have stopped sponsoring internationals.

The surprising thing was we had company presentation of one of the top companies at school where they earlier mentioned that they do sponsor and it was just two days left for the presentation that they said they won' sponsor anymore.

Would you recommend Indian candidates to go to US schools for MBA?

I think it depends on the candidate and his/her profile.

Although the options are limited, one need to really work hard to get the jobs. It is not going to be a cup of cake.

If you can work hard and have a great profile, you shouldn't have any issues. Rest everything depends on the luck. :)

Thanks for your revert. If there is uncertainty about job even after spending more than 1cr then its a tough situation.

One of my friend from OLIN business school was suggesting that companies are just looking at reasons to reject international candidates. Another friend from FUQUA struggled for sometime before getting an offer.

Are you also feeling the same?

Abhi,

Thanks for the update.

1. Is the situation the same across 15-20 ranked schools?
2. Is the situation better at 5-15 schools?
3. Any light you can shed on Consulting and IBanks sponsoring visas?

Thanks

Imagine spending a 100 grand USD, and relying on luck. I'm really leaning towards Canada right now.

abhimahna - Thank you! Would you be open to disclosing your school name?

Friend from Fuqua struggling? That is very scary to hear. If that is the case, I am not sure what the situation for lower ranked schools? Is it safe to say that any school outside of top 10 is not worth?

Friends,

As I mentioned it is going to be tough not IMPOSSIBLE. MBA is a risk in itself. So, if you are not willing to take risks, no worth of doing an MBA. :)

People do struggle but be ready for the same. It is good to be ready and put your extra extra efforts than to take the things very easy.

As I mentioned, "few" more firms have stopped sponsorship but the game is still on for Internationals!

While I agree that an MBA is a risk in the current US market, I don't agree that it should be a risk if.
Most candidates in the top 30 program have spent a lot of time and money in preparation, application and completing the degree. The risk should not be political or bureaucratic in nature at the very least.

Something tells me you are also from the top 30 program, well done! If it's tricky in a top 30 program, makes me think twice to leave everything behind and head to the land of dreams - especially if there isn't a promising dream left. I will head to Canada if I get an admit, wish me luck!
