I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.

Had an MBA classmate who interned for MBB outside US, had return offer for that country, was able to negotiate to join full time in US. No clue what their process was to accomplish that but imagine with the right business case / networking it’s not out of the question.

You answered your own question: you would rather work at any firm in the US than take the offer that you currently have. Your only option, therefore, is to recruit.

I got a Bain offer transferred to the US, but I had a competing McKinsey US offer. Just try and see what happens.

We’re rooting for you!
