MBA Aus/US


seagull18

Hi ,

I am a Mechanical Engineer and work in perth in an oil and gas company.Im originally from India. I got around 9 years of WE and am in Aus on a PR. I want to do my MBA next year. Im unsure how good are AGSM and MBS for job prospects post MBA? Has anyone had experience in these schools?
Also are US B schools better idea to go and do an MBA from ? I have my PR here in Aus but unsure how difficult would it be to stay back in USA to work post MBA ?
Kindly please advice.

Thanks.

These schools publish placement reports. Read them.

If you have PR in Australia, the thinking work will be much easier there.

This really depends. Yes, if you already have permanent residency in Australia, finding work would probably be easier than doing it in the US. However, even the top MBA programs in Australia don't have stellar placement statistics for careers in energy; by filtering Linkedin for oil workers in Australia neither AGSM or Melbourne ranks highly -- the University of Western Australia is the top school, at least here. (sidenote to Duncan: I'm not able to locate career reports for either AGSM or Melbourne... could you post the links here?)

If the energy sector was your goal and you didn't care about location, perhaps a US school like Duke, McCombs, or UNC Kenan-Flagler, where 90% of grads have jobs within 3 months of graduation, might be a better idea. I think that the placement success of these schools will likely outweigh the benefits you'd have with your permanent residency in Australia.

However, I'm not sure if your career goals involve the energy sector or not.

Thanks in advance... :)

What are your goals? IB is, generally, not so valuable as a functional specialisation.

Basically I am a technical person (coder) and now I want diversity in my career. I'm not interested in Marketing, Finance, Operations specialization so I thought of IB/IM.
Please advise.

International business isn't really a business function. Exporting is about sales, marketing, project finance etc,

You should also pay attention to your skills, aptitudes and preferences. Focus on specific roles that exemplify the kind of jobs you would like, and then see where those people have studied.

I don't know where you are, but I suggest that you look at the sort of organisations you would like to work in and see which MBA schools have the most alumni. EBS is very week - you don't even need a degree to enter - and AIB does not have the standing or alumni network of a traditional university. If you want an inexpensive online MBA, then Bradford and Durham are worth considering: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/online-mba-ranking-2015
