Pakistani MBA graduate planning to work in USA


Powered

Hi, I'm a Pakistani MBA graduate planning to work in USA. However, I'm wondering if my Pakistani MBA degree will create any barriers for me when I'll be trying to get a job.

To ask my main questions briefly:

1) Will I be able to get a job in USA with my Pakistani MBA degree?
2) If I do get a job in USA, what will be the starting salary for a person like me? (On average)

I'll be waiting for responses. Thanks!

Your Pakistani MBA will probably not count for or against you. I think LUMS is the only AACSB accredited school in the country. The major barriers will be, probably, that you are not in the US and don't have the right to work in the US. In that context, almost all jobs in the US are closed off to you.

Assuming you have US work authorization, you can answer this question by going to Linkedin and looking for MBAs working in the US who are from your school or a comparable school.  Then find the salaries related to their job titles using a tool like glassdoor.

That's a pretty unlikely thing to assume. Few Pakistani MBA programs will have notable networks in the US. They will be, overwhelmingly able to work in the US legally e.g.
- People who have completed degrees in the US
- Transferred employees of big tech firms and consultancies
- Married to Americans
- working where the regular visa rules don't apply, i.e.
-- international organisations like the World Bank and IFC 
-- PhDs working for universities.

I don't think it would be easy to work in US since its work permit and immigration process alone is quite tough for the foreigners. If you are willing to work in an English speaking country, maybe the UK would be the option for you if you have adequate work experiences to prove the employers that you are capable.

Cheers!

Canada lets people with a foreign (Pakistani in this case) degree to work in their country? Under what conditions? Would it have an impact on the salary, position, etc?
