MBA Applicants

How easy is it to get a job in the USA (MBB consulting type) after doing an MBA at a top UK school? (LBS, Oxford, Cambridge). I’m Canadian by the way.

With those schools under your belt , it wouldn’t be hard if you network and market yourself well

At the MBA level, networking can only get you so far. US offices hire from a very distinct set of MBA schools -make sure these schools are on the list first. Unlike BAs, mck doesn’t hire anyone really that isn’t at a core target

Tons of people get into MBB and consulting after these schools. Check their official employment reports.

Also note that these schools are more diverse than US business schools. People from Singapore apply to MBB in Singapore or in the region etc. Their priority is to be in their home country. Is 7% American? Is 20% American? That’s the denominator that you should look for.

That would be almost impossible because you wouldn’t have legal status to work in the US, and won’t benefit from the grace period that US MBA students would have. Do your MBA in the US if US MBB is your goal
