My Experience at ESU


cgomez
I'm currently a second year MBA student at ESU and I also received two undergraduate degrees from ESU as well. I have to say I absolutely have had a great experience and have met some wonderful people including my professors. I've had great support from the people I've met in school and outside in the community. Some people perceive Emporia as a boring town because of its size, however I think that when you want to find something fun to do you don't need a metropolitan city to find it.

What are the employment outcomes like for international students on the MBA there? The average GMAT is very low, and so is the selectivity. http://business-schools.findthebest.com/l/26/Emporia-State-University-KS

I can't give you the exact statistics on what percentage of international students' employment outcome is, however I can ask my adviser. ESU has a wide arrange of international students every year, but many times employment for international students depends on whether or not the company they've applied for has a sponsorship program or not; which would not be based on the academia of the school they've attended.

Thanks for the info, cgomez - perhaps your experience would be informative for some readers here. Just FYI this site is really geared to international students, many of whom want to go to the larger metropolitan areas in the US (NYC, parts of California, etc.) because of the wider availability of jobs, industry selection, diversity, international orientation, etc.

Since it sounds like you've been in Emporia for some time now - care to add insight about what a smaller, regionally-oriented school would offer to an international student, from say a country in Europe, or even India?

Ezra thank you for your feedback! Even though I am not consider and international student, I do have an international background. To answer your question, I believe Emporia has much to offer to international students. In the MBA program over half of the students are international and they come from various countries such as Saudi Arabia, China, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, and many others. Many international students have gotten internships and job offers in the big metropolitan areas. I think due to the small class sizes, the professors really get to know their students which benefits anyone when it comes to recommendations.
The benefits of a small regional area, such as Emporia, compared to another country would vary from individual to individual, however in my opinion international students adapt faster to the US culture when they have closer and longer contact with Americans; which many times is not attainable in a metropolitan area.
