hi All,

I am an indian female with about 9 years experience in IT currently working in the US.

I have been admitted to said (oxford) and IIM bangalore (india) for their 1 year MBA programs. I am looking to work in Europe post completion of the course, preferably in tech/consulting. I was wondering if any of the members could advise on the current situation w.r.t hiring in SAID. I have heard that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find employers who can provide UK visa sponsorship.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I will be skeptical about SAID due to the changes in the British regulations which is know to be tough as well as Brexit effect. I advise you to contact some students sin the program to know more. You can have a look to some review here:

If I'm not mistaken, Said and therefore Oxford gives you a visa for 4 months post graduation to look for a job. Anyways, this will help you in the U.K. But not in other EU countries. The only thing that helps you to get a job in EU is the brand of Said/Oxford to find an employer willing to sponsor you in the EU. It is not very easy, but not impossible.

I dunno your exact circumstances but in general IIM would be a much better bet...

Isn't their (IIM-B) 1 year program an EPGP? I'm pretty sure I read that it isn't an MBA, but a Post Grad Diploma in Management. It doesn't make a huge difference within India and the course content is pretty similar, but if you want to work in Europe, getting an MBA might be better.

EDIT - Just to say I'm not an expert and am not sure if there's any difference at all within India or internationally. However, if I wanted to work outside, I'd definitely get an MBA over a EPGP and getting placed in Europe might be easier at Said.

I'm not sure I agree with this. The MBA isn't much of a thing in Europe (at least compared to the US). So I don't think PGP vs MBA will come into play. Though Said isn't as strong a brand as the wider Oxford brand, the Oxford brand will undoubtedly trump the IIM brand though.

Also the only reason the IIM degree isn't an MBA is because of some weird rules set by the Indian govt (I think technically only universities can award MBAs and the IIMs are standalone business schools - not full fledged universities).

Yeah you're probably right. I have no idea about the MBA vs PGDM/EPGP or if it even makes a difference at all. Then again, if the end goal is to work in Europe it does make a lot more sense to study in Europe as against studying in India

Hi,

Thanks for updating the thread. Your response has piqued my interest and it would be great if you could elaborate on the decision. What led you to select Imperial over Said or IIM Bangalore?
