Finding a Job

The main reason most people pursue an MBA is to find a more fulfilling and better paying job. Darden students consistently get high placement statistics compared to other schools as they are regarded by employers as intelligent and hard-working leaders. Also, the Career Development Center provide invaluable support to students in their job search in the form of resume and interview help, networking opportunities, bringing recruiters to Darden, organizing career treks across the US and the world, and more. Finally, Darden has a very tight-knit Alumni base who are always happy to help current students.

Job search typically starts on day 1 of first year where you will get exposure to a variety of post-MBA career paths, and start planning your internship and full-time job search strategy. Israeli student at Darden have historically done very well in their job search, getting offers from leading consulting firms, investment banks, technology companies, industrial companies and more. Even during tough economic times, Israeli Darden students have always been able to find good summer internships and full-time opportunities after graduation. For more information please visit the Career Development Center website.

Some Darden students use their two years in school as a stepping-stone to launching their own companies, and the school provides ample support in the form of advice, free business facilities, and even funding in some cases. For more information visit the Batten Institute website.

Student Visa and Immigration Status

Most Israelis come to Darden under an F-1 Student Visa, which allows the student to not only study, but also work for an American employer during the summer internship (between first and second year), and then work for a full year in the US after graduation. Depending on the types of job offers you have, employers will usually apply for an H1-B visa for you (which allows you to work in the US for up to six years) either before graduating or shortly after. Those who want to remain in the US in the long term generally start the green card application some time after they receive their H1-B.

We have yet to hear about an Israeli who was admitted to Darden but was not able to get a student visa or a work visa afterwards.
Spouses who come to the US under F-2 are not permitted to work, unless they then apply for their own work visa through an employer.  In the past there have been many Israeli spouses who were able to find jobs in Cíville and obtain a work permit.

While not common for MBAs, there are various other student and work visas available. We encourage you look at the State Department website or other resources.
