How is the employment scenario for international MBA grads in US vs Europe?

I've heard that finding jobs in Europe is quite hard, but how is the case if you learn the local language? In that case, how are the employment chances compared to those in US?

I also heard that the US job market is almost saturated while europe has a shortage of skilled workers, especially with an engineering background. And there is the H1-B lottery, for which the chance of winning is only 50% even if you find a job. Isn't that extremely risky, and wouldn't European B schools be a safer bet?

I'm interested to hear what others have to say about this, some of what you're talking about makes sense, but it's a little difficult to know how BREXIT is going to impact all of this. I wouldn't think of Europe as an aggregate either.

Have you considered Canada, given that they would allow a 36 month work visa after graduation?

Yeah. But Im keeping Canada and Australia are a second preference as there are no schools ranked in the top 50.

As for Brexit, wouldn't that be a better situation for international students applying to UK? As there will be less number of EU students competing for jobs as well as admissions.

Fewer students competing for jobs might not help if there are fewer jobs period. I think it's a little hard to call at this point.
