I am French and currently pursuing a B.B.A in Germany but recently came to realize that I have absolutely no interest in working in Germany, or France or even Europe as a whole.
My dream would be to live in the US or Canada and work there for MBB.
After doing some research, below are the possible options and my opinion on them:
- Apply in North America right after my Bachelor's degree → Not possible, no one will sponsor a visa for an entry-level position
- Work for 2-3 years in Europe after my BBA then get an MBA in North America to get a job there → I really don't see myself spending another 3-5 years (still have 1 and half year to go to finish my BBA) in Europe.
- Get a Master's degree (not MBA) in North America - in management for example - directly after my BBA → would solve the visa problem + directly get me to the US/Canada without having to work in Europe BUT it seems like a Msc in Management is only really significant in Europe (HEC, Esade, LBS etc.) whereas in North America, either no good University proposes one, or MBB doesn't recruit there. Example: MBB recruits heavily from Ivey Business School (Canada) but only from the BBA and MBA classes and not from the MSc class at all…
Did I miss any other possibility? What would you do/recommend in my position?
I thank you all in advance for your messages and wish you all a nice day!
