I have been admitted to Kenan-Flagler with a full ride, Toronto Rotman with a 75% tuition funding, and UVA Darden with 50% tuition funding. I am married and an Indian citizen in my late twenties and would like to consider the easier immigration perspective that Canada has to offer (compared to the long waiting time for an Indian applying for a permanent residency in the US on an employment based category) but also don’t want to miss out on the earning potential in the US. Which school would you choose and why? Would it be wise to do a degree from the united states and then move to Canada after a few years of working here? Any insights would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Hello Aakashsharma1 ..... welcome to the community.

If you choose Rotman ....... you will be in the way to easiest immigration pathway in North America. On average with current immigration policies you can get a Canadian citizenship in 4-6 years (depending on the exact case).

Saying that ....... out of the schools you have listed, Darden is the most prestigious one. But again, with current US immigration policies , H1-B visa is not 100% guaranteed for even an HBS graduate.

Thanks for you response! I am already on an H1B visa in the US and would be going back to school for mba. What I am more concerned about is easier green card process in canada vs higher earning potential in US.

If you were single Darden would have been a no brainer. But, you have a complicated situation. With H4 under the radar you might also want to consult your wife regarding her career aspirations. I guess you already have and very well understand the Visa situation. Having said that if the end goal is to move to Canada in 4-5 years then Rotman should be your choice as I don't see any major benefit coming from Darden in such short time.

What's your post-MBA career goal (industry / function)?
For example, if you go into consulting you will earn great in US. You can do that for 2-4 years and then move to Canada at a much higher level and you will get good positions.

Once your respond, I can write more.

Thanks for the responses and the votes. Much appreciated! However, I am surprised till now that Kenan-Flagler hasn’t gotten a single vote, even though I am getting a full ride. And we won’t have to shell out as much as 60k (of after tax money) for tuition at Darden (after 50% funding).

I should also make it clear that both my wife and I are on H1B visa right now. We both plan to do our mba and she will be applying for a fall 2020 start.

I am thinking of strategy consulting after mba but might opt for general management if I like that better. I am not sure the hectic consulting lifestyle would suit me even though I find the work appealing. Hence I dont want to put too much weight on the very high consulting salaries.

Looking at your situation I would say go for Darden. In my humble opinion it will give you a much better brand value outside U.S. As far as U.N.C is concerned it's a great school but it's not in Darden's league. 60k would have been a deciding factor for an Indian candidate who is just moving to U.S and might not get H1B. With Darden you have a much better shot at MBB and the extra money won't matter much in the long run. But it's your money after all and it's your call.

I agree with the other comments..... depending on what we know as of now ? .......Darden seems to be a better choice even if you have to shell out some bucks..........all the best.
