International Students

Welcome to Fordham University Gabelli School of Business’ International Students Community! Here you’ll find resources such as blogs, events, and resources specific to consulting to help you embrace your career and academic journey and explore Fordham’s career resources in one central space.

The International Student Career Community is focused on assisting Gabelli’s international students in their U.S., home country, and international job searches. The job search process for international students is challenging and complicated. This Career Community will provide students with resources, programs, and information to support their efforts in working in and outside of the U.S. and help them navigate these challenging processes successfully.

Many international students may have F-1 or J-1 visa status and these visas have different on-campus, off-campus, and post-graduation requirements. You are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of International Services (OIS) before seeking any form of employment (paid or unpaid) and be aware of any restrictions, requirements, and deadlines.
