Indian Student Perspectives: How Business School Can Help You Find the Right Job in the U.S.
I have spent the last three years chatting often with potential business school students from India as director of the region for Fuqua. Again and again, I heard candidates say much of the value proposition of an MBA from a U.S. school is the opportunity to acquire experience interning for marquee firms in the US and eventually land a job. However, the competition for MBA jobs is stiff, especially for career-changers. I spoke with four second-year Indian students about their summer internships, their post-MBA plans, and how the resources at Fuqua helped enable their job search success in the following videos.
Roshni Rathi spent the summer at Boston Consulting Group. Watch the video to hear Roshni speak about how the second year student mentors worked with her to help her secure the BCG internship that turned into a full time job offer.
