This review is for Babson
Program 1-Year MBA
Class of 2015
Overall I was very satisfied with the program, but that was because I went there fully expecting to come back to my home country and become an entrepreneur. I did work for a year (while my opt visa allowed) to gain some experience but securing a job interview was not easy (I was looking for opportunities outside of Boston).
I must say though, even most of my international friends that looked for job opportunities in the Boston area struggled. As an international student unless you've got a really strong curriculum it is going to be tough if your objective is to get a job (Babson is not the strongest name in the Boston area as there is a lot of competition and convincing companies to invest in you is hard because of visa issues).
Even though it's not their "specialty", I also saw the finance track to be quite strong in Babson.
Look for Babson alumnis to help you out, it's tour strongest bet.
