US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting

The visa process shouls be pretty straightforward especially because you will be joining with a Masters degree. Friends who moved from Deloitte US to Deloitte NL said that the firm was able to get them a 5-year work permit pretty easily.

I have also heard of many cases where people completed their MBAs in the US and were given offers to work in London.

Shouldn’t be a problem after INSEAD, a lot of folks from my class stayed in Europe (contrarily to the US, even smaller startups are able to sponsor visas there, so you’ll have more options).

For INSEAD you need to be fluent in two languages to be accepted and become fluent in a third (can be a programming language) to graduate. LBS likely won't look at you with just 2 YOE - their average is 5-6 and they generally don't take consultants with 3 years at matriculation.
