Best MBA under $50,000 to get job in US


Pellerama
Hello everybody, I am from Brazil and will do an MBA next year. I am on a budget and can afford maximum $50,000 for the program.

My goal is to get a job in the US after I graduate and work for a couple of years. Which would be the best MBA for me?

Getting a job post MBA in US is more about convincing recruiters/companies to hire you and go through the painful process of lottery based H1B - which after the new administration in DC, companies and people are reluctant to do so.

I am working here on H1B, companies don't even want to do H1B transfer.
Usually if you have done your MBA from Ivy league / Top 15 or so, then you have a better shot at finding a job in US - but those schools would cost upwards of $50,000 for the tuition fees - unless you knock their socks off with your application including your GMAT score.

Kelley is a bit more than $50k, considering that the tuition for non-Indiana residents is $47k per year.

I think the closest you'll get is something like BYU Marriott, or Wisconsin if you could stretch the budget a bit or get scholarships.

I totally agree with @Ayon on the H1B issue here. You will only get a 1 year permit to work after you MBA. Anything beyond that requires an H1B which is lottery based (80K visas for almost 250K applicants) and the new administration isn't of any help either. I am myself in USA and considering to move to Europe for an MBA.

If you really want to move here, below are some recommendations ---
Mays A&M, BYU Marriott & University of Wisconsin-​Madison are great schools.

Some other decent options include --
- University of Florida (Hough)
- University of Texas - ​Dallas
- University of Iowa (Tippie)
- University of Georgia (Terry)
- University at Buffalo - School of Management

I suggest you do your MBA at an excellent business school in Canada, perhaps at HEC Montreal ($33k CAN), find work there with a company with US operations, and then aim to transfer internally.

PS UBC and Alberta might also fit your budget, although Vancouver's expensive. I make the Canada suggestion because the path to work in the USA which you outline is very unlikely. You would be much more likely to make that transition by training for a vocational position, for example as a dental hygienist.

Good suggestion from Duncan. Plus, the post-MBA visas tend to be less complicated than in the US.
