I see some MBAs (esp. lower ranking ones) come with a high % of self seeking jobs. In this case, is the MBA still that valuable?

Shows a weak OCR, if you want that MBA to get you interviews at big firms, not likely to happen

It definitely depends on what you as an individual are defining as “MBA value”.

Truly, the most prestigious large firms for consulting/banking won’t recruit as much past the T15 unless there is some exceptional reason/geographic factor (I.e. McK Minneapolis recruits university of Minnesota b students for Minneapolis office) and certainly not past T25.

With that said, school size may also be a factor. Companies will still hire from those schools, just not pay for the on-campus fanfare. I.e. smaller programs Sloan and GSB have well over 30% and 40% student facilitated but it’s not because companies don’t want to hire them.

Additionally, niche and highly selective firms that may only hire one or two people a year (PE/VC, startups, boutique firms) would require student self seeking jobs.

If you’re an international student requiring sponsorship and hoping to end in US, your best value gauge would probably be talking to second year international students to understand their job search and confirm that schools offer the STEM certification to give you additional years to work in US.

Other programs like Insead have far fewer student facilitated, but this may be tied to the global program nature and likelihood that students are returning to their origin region.
