The UK generally has one year MBAs, and the US has generally two years. So, other things being equal, you can specialise more in the US. In the UK you could take a one year master of science in marketing followed by a one year MBA, for a lower combined tuition than a US two year MBA. The UK, of course, is more open as a place for foreigners to find work. Maybe Canada or Australia are the best options with both many two year MBAs and more open job markets.

It also depends on your expectations and goals. Most MBA programs everywhere will cover core marketing topics, to a degree. Many go onto successful marketing careers with just a general MBA. But if you're looking for a career where you're focusing on certain aspects of marketing (marketing analytics for instance), then a specialized degree might be more valuable.

UK, is it really more open for foreigners to find work? wow, this's quite different from what i heart before. policy in Australia and Canada is very friendly, but MBA there seems less popular, right?

Thanks a lot for your feedback. I've been working 10 years, 5 in analysis, 2 in strategy, 3 in communication. i choose MBA is to improve myself in the breadth in stead of depth. But frankly speaking, I'm not quite clear of goal. Maybe one of below
1. switch a job to FMCG
study MBA in US or UK, work in foreign country for a few years then go back to my homeland
2. Apply for immigration after MBA
as Duncan mentioned above, should CA and AU are the best choice? but it is difficult for MBA graduate to find work in Australia, right?

In terms of the ease of getting a post-MBA work visa, Canada would probably be the best option. Australia is also a decent choice if you do a 2-year MBA. The UK is always a decent option (if you do your degree from a top school). Singapore (or maybe Hong Kong too?) might also be worth considering, especially if your goal is the FMCG industry.

The US can be tricky. The first year after your MBA, it's usually not a problem because of the OPT visa scheme. But anything longer than that and you'd generally need an H1B visa, for which you'd need employer sponsorship - and those visas are awarded via a lottery system (there are a limited number).

The lottery is also heavily weighted toward a small number of Indian IT firms who apply for a large part of the quota on the opening day for applications.

Thanks a lot for your input!!
I also heard how difficult it is to get H1B in US, but it looks more opportunities could be found in US rather than Canada or Australia, right? i mean even though i wanna go back to China after MBA study, US can provides more choices. do you agree?
Second, some people say it's not easy to find a marketing work in Canada or Australia, cause i'm Chinese, knowing limited about local marketing. so company will prefer to hire local people... may i ask how do you think?

No, if you look at the percent of international students who find work, the us is very, very poor. There are more jobs, but there are far fewer available and appropriate jobs per student.
