Simon students and faculty are remarkably representative of the varied personalities working within the global business marketplace. The unique blend of ideas, perspectives, talents, backgrounds, and cultures provides a rich environment in which members of the Simon community flourish and grow.
We are especially excited to be able to welcome a significant number of international students to the Simon campus each year. Approximately 40 percent of our enrollment comprises students representing more than 35 different countries, including China, Brazil, Germany, Thailand, India, Japan, Taiwan, Colombia, and Russia.
Working in the US
Many foreign nationals studying in the US would like to work in the US after graduation on either a short- or long-term basis. Unfortunately, the US has one of the world’s most complex visa programs and, like most other countries, has very strict immigration laws aimed at preserving full-time career opportunities for its own citizens. While the Career Management Center will work to assist international students, please understand that the immigration laws may limit the options that are available to you.
The immigration rules and regulations developed and enforced by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services change often. Foreign national students seeking employment in the US must work closely with the University of Rochester’s International Services Office, www.iso.rochester.edu, to stay informed of the current regulations and to allow enough time to file for Practical Training or to change their visa status.
