RSM MBA - Post-MBA Opportunities, Brexit and Visa Rules

RSM MBA Curriculum -<br />
InterviewRead the First Part of the Interview (RSM MBA - Curriculum, Misconception & Sustainability) with the RSM MBA Director of MBA, Marketing & Admissions – Brandon Kirby.

In the second part of the interview, Brandon shares the latest placement trends for RSM International MBA,  opens up about the impact of Brexit on post-MBA opportunities and sheds light on the visa rules for International students during the job search.

With a 97% International class, the logical question would be about the post-MBA placement trends. Can you share the latest trends?

The most popular job functions are finance/accounting, consulting, and sales/marketing. As for industries, we see our graduates take positions in a variety of places, but consumer products, financial services, and technology, seem to be popular this year.

Last year was an interesting year for compensation, as both Brexit and Trump seemed to have an effect on salaries and signing bonuses. Our job placement remained strong, with nearly 90% had accepted a job either before graduation or within three months thereafter. Over 80% of the class accepted a role in Western Europe with The Netherlands being the most popular destination.  

Has Brexit impacted the placement trends for the latest class?

The final count for the latest class is not yet in, but feedback from students would suggest that obtaining a role and, more importantly, a visa in the UK has become more difficult. Students are also viewing the UK as a less appealing location post-MBA, so interest from their side has appeared to decrease. Brexit has created a lot of uncertainty, which has led many of our graduates to believe it’s too big a risk at this moment.

With the pressure to curb immigration on the high in Europe, has Netherland changed its Visa Rules?

On the contrary, the Netherlands continues to have one of the most progressive approaches to immigration in Europe – especially as it relates to incoming students. For example, RSM graduates enjoy a one-year employment search visa that allows them to stay in the country while searching for employment.

We have such a high job placement rates that most if not all of our graduates find employment before or soon after graduation. However, for cases where finding a job takes longer, graduates aren’t forced to return to their home country.

In addition, the search visa also allows candidates to be more selective on which job opportunity they decide to pursue. In other words, they don’t have to accept the first job they are offered simply because they are looking to stay in the Netherlands or Europe. It also alleviates much stress during the program to know that once you graduate you can to stay in the Netherlands.

One interesting fact is that a student can wait up to three years after graduation before enacting this visa.
