I am a student of International Twinning program and will be studying in Eastern Institute of Technology in New Zealand and I am enrolled in Bachelor of Science in Computer Science which is a 3 year course in the following year. I want to know is a 3-year BS degree valid in USA if I am looking for doing MBA or MS from the US or in search of job in future there?

Dear Pratyush,

Greetings from Hotcourses!

USA accepts applications for Masters followed with 16 years of Education. However, there are still few Universities who accepts 15 years of Education. Your Degree from New Zealand will definitely be accepted by any country but if you are targeting Specifically USA after your Undergrad then top end Universities in USA requires 16 years of education. Also as your second query An American degree definitely increases your probabilities of Jobs and future oppurtunities.

Masters does not ask for any work experience wherein if you are applying for an MBA then you should have min.2 years of work experience.
