LBS or NYU/Columbia for consulting


I have a question about doing my MBA abroad. I want to go into the consulting industry, which school is best? I will either go to LBS or to a school in New York such as Columbia or NYU.

Mainly I am looking for advice about career prospects after the MBA. I read that NYU and Columbia are good schools for consulting but it is hard to get a visa for the US after the MBA. But I have also read the same thing about LBS and the UK. Which one has less risk for me? (I am from China.)

Considering you have admits from all three. LBS would be an excellent choice.

P.S - Please investigate at length and understand the Visa process of your target country.

Yes, I don't think the visa is anything more than a formality for LBS grads who get UK offers of internships or jobs from their consulting recruiters. You don't go to hire at LBS without understanding that.

Insead and Ivey are also options: http://find-mba.com/lists/top-business-school-by-speciality/top-business-schools-for-consulting
