Hi Team,

I was looking for some guidance on shortlisting MBA colleges for US. My profile -

GMAT - 740
Work Experience - 5+ Years as of today
Companies Worked for - ZS Associates and Novartis
Current Designation - Business Associate Consultant
Current Area of Work - Consulting and Analytics for Pharmaceutical Clients

I am particularly concerned about post MBA job prospects in US considering I will only get 1 year to work if I am not able to secure H1B visa. So, wanted to know that what the good colleges should I consider applying for where I could get 50%-100% scholarship so that if I don't get a job in US then I could consider returning to India. Kindly advise.

Thanks,
Prashant

If you're looking for a scholarship, I'd target schools in the high teens-30 range. You've got solid work experience & a solid GMAT - you are coming from a demographic that has very high scores but a 740 is definitely competitive. Look at Tepper, UNC & Emory as well. In my experience they tend to admit more Indian male applicants than many other schools & you may have a shot at funding there. If you look at schools that are not as highly ranked as those (which tend to be in the high teens) you'll have any even better shot at a scholarship.

Thanks a lot Jon for your quick response! This is really helpful. I needed your thoughts on one more thing. I wanted to understand that what are the good colleges which offer 1 year MBA in US and what are the job prospects from those 1 year MBA programs v/s regular 2 year ones, especially for the International students?

Kindly share your thoughts.

Thanks,
Prashant

There are a number of schools offering one-year MBAs, including Kellogg, Cornell, Emory, USC, Notre Dame, Babson, and Thunderbird. Job prospects will be just as good for the one year MBA as they will be for the two year MBA at those schools since you'll have access to the same career services support. Hope that helps!

Thanks Jon! Sorry to bother you again but I just wanted to check that how are the job prospects for the Indian students in the US after an MBA(If graduated from top 25 US schools) ? Especially the visa prospects i.e. if someone does not have the H1B visa already then are companies willing to offer the visa sponsorship to the students or not?

Kindly let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Prashant

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. It's really hard to make any predictions about your visa prospects unfortunately, especially in the current political climate. It will definitely help to go to a higher ranked school since that will increase the chances that a top company will want to sponsor you.
