  1. 1st 2 years at UBS, Mumbai
  2. The 3rd and 4th year at La Rochelle Business School, France. (The 4th year at La Rochelle is considered Part 1 of the MBA as the credits get adjusted as per “European Credit Transfer System” so ideally the student gets credit for the 1st year of MBA in the 4th Year whilst pursuing his final year of BBA. Thus saving 1 year vis-à-vis a student doing 6 years of BBA+MBA from USA/Canada.)
  3. The 5th and final year can be completed in USA / Canada or France.

IN WHICH YEAR THE STUDENT WILL HAVE TO DO THE INTERNSHIP?

WHAT ARE THE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AFTER THE BBA+MBA DEGREE COMPLETED IN USA OR CANADA?

  • In USA – As soon as the student graduates, they have 1 month to apply for OPT (a job) but it is state specific and it can’t be guaranteed. A student in 5th year should start looking for job as early as possible and it is recommended to take 9 credits each semester and keep 3 credits in last semester so they can have time to look for a job.
  • In Canada situation is different – It is easier to immigrate in Canada. It is easier to get a job in Canada, students have the opportunity to work during study. Normally a student gets a well- paid job after graduation hence there is a greater demand for students who have completed Masters. In Canada they have a 1 year to look for a job post their Masters.
