Michigan Ross vs. USC Marshall vs. UVA McIntire

Hello,

I'm a business student from Switzerland and I have the opportunity to make an exchange semester at the 3 universities from the title. My goal is to land a T2+ MC internship in the US and hopefully get a full time offer there. Therefore, I would like to ask you which of the 3 will maximize the chances for this. The preferred location for my internship is in New York, but if that's not possible, then I don't really care where the internship is.

I know from USC that they will provide a working visa for an internship from around May to August or something, I'm not sure about Michigan and UVA. But I believe, that if I ask them, they will also help me get a working visa.

I'm curious to read your opinions :)

I'm going to ignore a lot of very real factors you should definitely consider before making a decision here (price, visa, school culture, etc.) and just dive into career prospects. If you're looking to work in New York, USC is off the table. Michigan and UVA are in the same ballpark, and you can get looks from pretty much any consulting firm you want at either. They're so neck-and-neck that it doesn't really matter in the big picture

You won't get a FT job as an exchange student.
