This is the second in the series Work Abroad Adventures, a comprehensive look at global work opportunities for ambitious international students.
For new international MBA students studying in the US it’s tempting to look at Wall Street as the go-to option for MBA finance jobs. But with H-1B making employers nervous and no guarantee of H-1B sponsorship, international MBA students should consider opportunities outside the US for opportunities.
Thankfully there are plenty of options for international finance students across the globe. The fintech sector has upended traditional banking systems and companies all over the world in the past five years. Global investment in the fintech sector topped $31 billion USD in 2017. Even JP Morgan, the employer of choice for future investment bankers, invested $9.5 billion in technology in 2016.
Translation: there’s money to be made and plenty of jobs at the cutting edge of finance and technology.
