MBA in the United States (USA)

Of all the destinations where students can study for an MBA, the USA is without a doubt one of the most popular. And rightly so: an MBA in the USA can be rewarding, both in terms of the learning experience and also for the post-degree careers an MBA in the United States can offer. Additionally, students can get a great cultural experience by studying in the USA.

And the cultural experiences can vary widely, given the size of the country and the many possibilities for business study within. Many USA-bound MBA students choose to study in a big city, like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, or Houston, for example. Others might choose a lower-key setting, such as New Haven or Cornell.

Fortunately for potential MBA students, the United States hosts some of the world's premier business schools, such as the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Harvard Business School, Columbia Business School, and UPenn's Wharton School, among many others. 

An MBA in the USA can be pursued on a part-time basis, but for many international students, full-time is the way to go. The degrees offered include general MBA programs, as well as specialized courses in subjects like finance, supply chain management, marketing, accounting, operations management, information technology, business analytics, and more.

International students who do an MBA in the United States often consider the possibility of staying in the country and working for a while after graduation. Careers can be found in many industries, such as financial services, technology, and even the entertainment field. These will vary widely depending on where in the USA you'd like to work. However, if you plan on working in the USA after your MBA, make sure you understand the visa requirements.
