What kind of work visa do people graduating with Harvard MBA etc get? Because if they are coming from countries like India etc and they have to apply for regular H1-B with just once chance as their degree is non stem it could be really risky.

      Because O-1 requires demonstrated extraordinary ability with national / international acclaim. And no, working in consulting/finance and then going to HBS does not meet that bar.

      I know some ppl get O1 because of consulting experience. In the end is all about a how good is your lawyer and how you execute their suggestion. One ridiculous case I heard recently is one editor of a chinese site to introduce tourists spot in Seattle get O1 because he proved his article has some big impacts

    Lol. University has nothing to do with work visa. You would still have to fight for H1.

    If you have an MBA from Harvard you should be able to get a manager job outside the US for a US company. Get a couple years of international work experience and then transfer back to the US as an international executive and get a greencard.

    I heard that some bschools now have more "analytics" majors to get that sweet 3 year OPT

    They apply for H1B too. Just like tech Indian people choose safe bets like FANGM for their first job despite other great opportunities, the risk averse ones there choose major consulting firms like MBB and FANGM which transfer you elsewhere. Most do go back to India or other countries.
