I am currently in US on H4 visa.
I want to take the route of pursuing MS> Change of status from H4 to F1> OPT> find a prospective H1B sponsor.
For the same I have chosen to enroll in MS in Organizational Leadership from NYACK, NY. (New York Christian College, NY). Given my 6 years experience and background in OD, OB field back in India.
This college is approved for SEVIS and is listed amongst approved colleges at USCIS site.
I chose this college for 2 prime reasons 1. no gmat/GRE required (this saves time) and 2. getting to start as early as January 2014 (not wasting much time)
I have following question:
This college holds cohort type classes twice a week for 4 hours each. Is this a issue in getting F1?
Also the MS gets completed in 1 year (provided the dissertation gets accepted). Does the duration of program play a role in getting F1?
How do I check the credibility of the MS degree that I get? Is it valued amongst US Job Circle?
Can anyone please suggest some other colleges/univ in NY/NJ for some good recognised MS programs in the field of Oraganizational behaviour/Organizational Development/Organizational Learning? (I do not want to get into the loop of GMAT/GRE :P)
Thanks in advance friends…
