Harleen Kaur Bhomrah, an Indian graduate from Wisconsin School of Business, is a classic example of how an MBA degree with the additional fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) benefits in obtaining extended work visa and better job prospects in the US. Harleen was initially rejected for the position of a project manager at Dell EMC, but highlighting the fact that she was a Science MBA, she says 'tipped the scales in her favour'.
