STUDY ABROAD: WORRIED ABOUT VISA POLICIES? HERE IS YOUR GUIDE TO VISA POLICIES IN USA, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA AND SINGAPORE

The US is one of the toughest places in the world to secure a job for MBA graduates. And with the change in government, it has become even tougher. One of the primary reasons for the same is the lottery system.

The work can be pursued for any employer and even via self-employment, as full-time work or as an internship, but has to necessarily be in the field of study of

How much Does a Top 10 MBA Cost | What Makes them So Expensive?

Adding the letters 'MBA' against your name comes at a cost. Considering that your wallet will be a lot lighter when are done with the program, it makes sense to make that decision carefully. There are a number of ways to narrow down your search on how much does a top 10 MBA cost and and one of the ways is to follow rankings based on tuition fees.

Enrolling for an MBA in any of the top ten schools can set you back by about $200,000. Apart from this, you must also consider that the tuition costs continue to rise every year by 4%-5%. Stanford, where the costs of the MBA program for the year 2019 work out to around $ 231,672 as against 225,594 in the year 2017 (about 3 % increase). INSEAD, on the other hand, ....Top MBA Costs and Breakup

Michigan Ross, Chicago Booth, Tepper, Cornell Admits with Scholarship for this Young Entrepreneur


I have been over the moon ever since I heard the best news from Michigan Ross, Cornell, Tepper, Chicago Booth, NUS, and ISB. An offer of $28,000 as scholarship by Johnson Cornell made everything extra sweet!

It was all unbelievable when it started. Slowly the feeling started sinking in, and I started moving towards a much harder journey. A journey of selecting which one to chose! I know i have been very lucky to be in this situation. I call it my dream run!

Must Knows on Yale MBA Admissions and Scholarships: Insights from Laurel Grodman, Managing Director of Admissions, Yale

Image

GyanOne: What are the key employment opportunities for international students? What sectors are the most popular/feasible for them to get into post the Yale MBA?

Laurel: I believe that regardless of the school, the biggest driver of opportunity within the post-MBA landscape for the international student is visas. Traditionally, Consulting, Financial Services, Technology, and Retail (in that order) have been the most popular post-MBA options for Yale MBA graduates, and I see that to be the case irrespective of immigration status (US student v/s international student). If I could think a bit more philosophically about it, I would assume that this is the case because ... YALE MBA ADMISSIONS

STEM MBA in USA: Top Programs and their Requirements

When you graduate from a regular MBA program, you are given 12 months to find an employer who will sponsor your stay beyond that period. However, with a STEM-MBA, students can take advantage of the fairly lenient rules and work for up to 3 years after graduation, before requiring the H1-B visa.

Consider the MSTeM (Management Science and Technology Management) program offered by Duke FUQUA School of Business as an example here. Apart from the regular curriculum, taking an additional 8 courses (data-driven, technical), will result in a STEM-Certified MBA degree. The program offers electives such as STEM MBA in USA
