Possibility of using an MBA to end up working in Australia?


Hi all, I just got back from a trip to Australia and fell in love with the country. I have decided I would like to move there at least for a couple of years. I'm thinking about doing an MBA and then trying to find a job after graduation, but do not understand how feasible this is. I know that I can get a work visa after finishing my MBA but do employers there really hire non-Australian workers on a regular basis?

Great. Any suggestions about what business schools are good for this? Is Melbourne Business School a good choice?

If you sort the FT ranking by "international mobility," which is the success rate for grads who switch countries after the program, you'll see that the two Australian schools, MBS and AGSM, rank in the top 10.

That's good. It doesn't exactly mean that "international student who want to move to Australia after graduation can," but is a reasonable indicator of this.

You should, however, ask the schools directly about career statistics, especially about people in similar situations as yours.

Hello, do you have an idea about how the other Australian schools are in this sense? MGSM, University of Sydney, Monash, etc...

You'll have to ask these schools. As far as I know, none of them publish any kind of post-MBA employment reports. My sense though is that grads will generally not have the same level of career progression as the ranked schools.
