Hello Fellow Monkeys,
as I am finishing up freshman year of college, I am contemplating how I should proceed from here. I am an international student from Germany at a US west coast target school. Although I really like it here, I am unsure whether staying here is my best option for the future. Basically, I have two options:
1. Finish my B.A. in the US, try to get a job in IB in the US/UK/Germany. At the moment, I am paying high tuition fees and I am worried about the risk of not getting a job in the US due to being an international.
2. Transfer to a (less prestigious) University in Germany, do my B.A. and maybe MBA there, apply to jobs in Europe. This would be low-cost compared to the first option, but I would have to stay in school longer, my degree would be from a less prestigious University, and applying to jobs in the US would be exponentially harder.
I am really torn between these two. If anyone here has any experience with opportunities for international students in either of these categories, I would be really grateful for any advice.
