Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Internationalize Your Recruiting

Today‚Äôs world economy demands that business managers have cultural sensitivity, experience managing businesses in foreign environments, and fluency in multiple languages. Fuqua graduates will help your company succeed in the global marketplace. About 40% of Fuqua students hail from international locations and represent around 45 countries. Many of these students held positions of significant responsibility prior to business school.

Opportunities In the U.S.

Most Duke MBA international students are available for summer internship employment without visa sponsorship as they are working under the Curricular Practical Training that is a part of their student visa.

For full-time employment, students without U.S. work authorization may apply for 12 months of Optional Practical Training post-graduation to work without a visa. To continue working in the U.S. beyond one year, these graduates need a company-sponsored H-1B visa.

Applying for the H-1B visa is a surprisingly simple and inexpensive process. For more information on the H-1B application process, visit the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website.

Opportunities Outside the U.S.

If your company would like to recruit students for positions outside the U.S., let us help you make that process easier. We can arrange a Duke interview, even outside of the traditional recruiting calendar if needed, to align with your in-country hiring needs. Fuqua has state-of-the-art video conference facilities and companies can interact with an individual student or an entire group of students to mirror a face-to-face conversation. If telephone interviews are more convenient, we can also make those arrangements on your behalf.
