International MBA students studying in the U.S. don’t necessarily have it as hard as everyone thinks when it comes to snagging coveted jobs. Not only do most schools surveyed by Bloomberg Businessweek report placement rates on par with those for domestic students, but many report that international students are having success landing jobs in the U.S., despite significant obstacles.

Of 25 U.S. business schools ranked by Bloomberg Businessweek in 2012 that responded to an informal survey, five reported that 100 percent of international students had received and accepted a job offer three months after graduation: University of Washington’s Foster School of Business, Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business, Rutgers Business School, Texas A&M’s Mays Business School, and University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business. All 25 programs had placement rates of 73 percent or more.
