What is the current scene for Indian Students studying in (M7 +Next 8) Business Schools in US?Are they able to get good jobs after MBA ?How much role does Visa sponsoring play in final FT Recruiting for Indians there who doesn't have work permit/green card ?Is the competition tough for foreign graduates (~around 40% of the class I guess ) as the firms may have limited quota for foreign students.

I am planning on my MBA and I was shortlisting schools .I would like to know your honest opinion on this.Is it worth taking 100k + loan and apply to US MBA schools.I don't have that kind of money but I am willing to take risk if it really worth?
THANKS for your answers in advance :)

You have to consider what your other options are ?If you want a low cost degree go for IIM/ISB. The competition in India for the few good jobs is immense. As with anything nothing comes on a platter. Indians from 40 ranking B Schools land jobs in Amazon AT Kerney. For M7 you get a degree go for it. Just spend some time on poetsandquants.com and see the comparison of companies that recruit there.

There's absolutely no easy answer to your question, since it all depends on what you plan to do with the degree afterwards, and possibly on your personal feelings about taking on a mountain of student loan debt. Here's some food for thought, though: http://www.forbes.com/lists/2011/95/bes ... _rank.html

For whatever its worth, the ROI on top U.S. business schools is pretty impressive. The numbers in the Forbes rankings are merely averages, and you may or may not experience a similar ROI if you come to school here. But the numbers are interesting: if you're "average", you'll probably be pretty happy with the MBA investment. :)
