What is the best European country to work for after an MBA?

Updated on : December 3, 2021 by Turner Norton



What is the best European country to work for after an MBA?

Among the first questions that arise in the minds of aspiring Indian students planning to study abroad are: "What is the best country for MBA studies?" - 'What are the best places to get MBA jobs abroad after graduation?'

Then there are other secondary queries too: - What are the

requirements and exams for an MBA abroad

? - How much do the

costs of attending a foreign MBA in US, UK

?

After completing an MBA in a foreign country (and dangerously flirting with the poverty line), most Indian students would like to work abroad for at least a few years to pay off the student loan before returning to India . Therefore, the previous two questions generally go hand in hand.

Top MBA Overseas Places for Indian Students

There is no scientific methodology here. It is mainly based on the requests we receive from MBA applicants who work with us and the reasons they cite.

USA

This is where it all started for the MBA. No wonder then th

All these years later, an MBA in the USA tops the charts for international students (not just Indians). When you consider infrastructure, resources, and opportunities, America is the number one choice for a vast majority.

England, United Kingdom)

Although it has been on the receiving end of late due to its new visa regime and growing uncertainty about obtaining MBA jobs in the UK, England is still a good option for people looking for shorter duration programs. (one year of MBA). Many good MBA programs are located in or around London, the great center of global business activity. Almost all the major international companies have a presence here.

Canada

Compared to the US, although there are not so many top MBA schools in Canada to choose from, but for many Indians (especially those with a

chacha-hee

/

mama-hee

or close relative who already resides in the

Ka-nay-daa

) Graduate prospects look much better than in most other countries.

Singapore

Being close to India and still offering an international classroom experience makes it a popular choice for cost-conscious Indian MBA students. In contrast to Western countries, the time required to fly from Singapore to India and the costs of a plane ticket are manageable.

The best MBA programs in Singapore are

National University of Singapore (NUS)

and Nanyang (NTU). Also, there is a big new attraction in recent years: the INSEAD Singapore campus. That's a great way to get a top-notch global MBA from Asia and cut overall costs. The cost of living in Singapore is less than staying in Europe.

Australia

For management education, Australia is in a strange place. When it comes to the second question (about living and working abroad after graduation), Australia offers an excellent standard of living. Like Canada, it has a friendlier immigration process than other countries.

Best European country to settle after an MBA

1. Germany

Germany is actively looking to recruit international students in the coming years. Germany has a lot to offer:

-

Germany has abolished tuition fees in public institutions

: This means that you will only have to pay administrative fees of around € 100 to € 250 per semester and living costs (this does not apply to private universities and for most master's students they expect if you have studied a Bachelor's degree in Germany before )

- A simple

student visa

process; and a no visa policy for courses of less than 3 months for international students from

Australia, Canada, Israel, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United States.

Asian foreign workers

. For the record, a recent statistic cited that 68% of international students found a job after graduating in Germany.

2. France

France and its world famous capital

Paris

It is an attractive destination for international students who speak French or are interested in learning French. However, you should know that French universities are quite demanding with the people they accept and the expectations are high. However, you should consider studying in France because

- Education is important in France, so you are sure to get a world-class and quality education while studying there.

- France excels in the following courses: Nuclear, Space and Aviation, Engineering, Teaching, Linguistics, Art, History and Medicine.

Annual tuition fees

They are established by the French Government for higher education universities: from € 200 to € 700 maximum depending on the course. Fees for private institutions, particularly business and management schools, are generally higher, fluctuating between € 3,000 and € 10,000 per year.

After graduation

if it is related to your course.

Master's and engineering students can apply for a non-renewable temporary residence permit of one more year, which allows them to work at any job for up to 60 percent of a normal workweek.

If the job offers a salary of at least 1.5 times the minimum wage, students can change status from student to employee and work full time.

3. Italy

Italy is your preferred destination if you are interested in history, the arts and living a unique ancient culture. Italy's higher education and research system has a good reputation for its excellent standards.

- It is highly recommended to have knowledge of Italian to enjoy your stay, but it is not mandatory to obtain a visa.

- Italy offers an incredible diversity of courses in Fine Arts, Fashion and History, especially related to the Renaissance period.

Spain became a hub for international students thanks to the successful implementation of the Erasmus Program there: a European Union program to encourage EU students to study abroad. Spain remains an attractive destination, especially for Latin American students who benefit from the common language and easier visa rules.

- Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world and the second most widely spoken in the Western world. Improving your Spanish early could open many more doors for you tomorrow.

- Enrollment starts at € 5,500 per semester and can go up to € 12,000 per semester.

The UK remains the number one destination for international students in 2014. With an excellent reputation and higher education offering, UK universities sell easily. However, recent changes in fees and visa rules could change the UK's leadership in the sector.

- UK has a clear advantage of being the country where English is spoken and spoken every day. The language commonly spoken in business and the second most widely spoken language after Chinese.

- University tuition fees are the highest of all European countries. On average, university fees for international students start at £ 10,500 and can go up to £ 20,000 if your goal is specific courses in finance and management. There are many scholarships available to check.

- The student visa for the United Kingdom is difficult to obtain. It requires demonstrating a good knowledge and practice of the English language and that you can support yourself financially, in addition to providing the appropriate documents. Always ask an expert for visa advice and guidance if in doubt.

- Working while studying is restricted to 20 hours per week. The UK job market is quite flexible and dynamic, so it is not too difficult for international students to find a part-time job.

- However, it is difficult to find work after graduation due to the strict rules on post-study work visas. International students working after graduation will need to find a job that can be sponsored by an employer; or an internship that pays the minimum wage; or start your own business.

Europe is actually easier from a visa point of view. I'm just saying easier because once you get the job, the visa is not subject to a variable that is not under your control. There is no lottery if you find an employer willing to grant you a visa.

However, to find such an employer, there are two factors that must be taken into account:

  1. The school you attend: I am in INSEAD and not a single employer has placed a visa restriction so far. The school attracts employers large enough to sponsor visas and hungry enough that top talent has the motivation to sponsor them. LBS to my understanding is the same, I can't co

Europe is actually easier from a visa point of view. I'm just saying easier because once you get the job, the visa is not subject to a variable that is not under your control. There is no lottery if you find an employer willing to grant you a visa.

However, to find such an employer, there are two factors that must be taken into account:

  1. The school you attend: I am in INSEAD and not a single employer has placed a visa restriction so far. The school attracts employers large enough to sponsor visas and hungry enough that top talent has the motivation to sponsor them. LBS to my understanding is the same, I cannot comment on IE. From my understanding the European B schools, LBS and INSEAD are on a completely different level of schools and cannot be compared to the other B schools.
  2. The languages ​​you speak: If you do not speak any European language, your options will be limited to the UK / Ireland, the Netherlands for some companies, Scandinavia and Belgium for some more. Berlin startups don't seem to have a language restriction either. However, please understand that companies outside of the UK will have a language preference and not a restriction. Which means if you are up against a Dutch speaker, they will prefer the Dutch speaker (and obviously so) unless you are significantly better.

There is a third and more important point of how good you are, however, if you enter INSEAD or LBS, I would assume that is a fact. Most of the Indians who come to INSEAD with a view to working in Europe manage to find a job in Europe based on my observations.
