Evening MBA at CSULB


I got an admit from CSULB for evening MBA in Information Systems(part time). I am an international student, looking to find employment in US after graduation. How easy/difficult is it to get jobs after graduation. How long does it take to complete the course if I take more than the minimum number of courses. Can I complete it in two years

CSU Long Beach won't have the same level of career support as a ranked school like UCLA, USC, etc. Doubly so because this particular MBA program is aimed at local working professionals who have less need for career support than your average international student. You should really ask the school about what kind of career services they offer - and if international students are able to secure work after graduation.

The other complicated part of this situation is that, as you may be aware, many employers in the US might be hesitant about hiring international students since visas are awarded through a lottery system after the OPT period. Make sure you understand how this works, and maybe even have a conversation with the school itself for more info.

Yes, you can complete it in two years.

@badux Thank you for your detailed reply.
Career support is an important factor for me. Yet to hear from USC. Yes, I am aware of the visa and opt issues. I am looking at tech jobs. The visa thing worries me too. Will cross that bridge when I come to it.
Thanks!
