  • Can I apply for an MBA program and still continue working as an architect intern on its CPT?

    Hi my name is Ram, firstly I'd like to thank you so much for extensive research you guys have done on what colleges that give out cpt from day one. It is a life saver.

    I completed my masters of science from Upenn and I got a job here in Philly last month. My opt unfortunately expires on December 31 2016. After which I need to apply to a cpt program to continue working here in the US and doing an MBA would be my first option.

    The problem is this, it clearly states that I can obtain cpt only within the field that I study in.

    Being fully aware of this, here is my question to you. Can I apply for an MBA program and still continue working as an architect intern on its CPT?
    Secondly, if I cannot do that, then, are there any variations(project management, etc) in an MBA that would facilitate me to continue my current job and study?
    And finally, if I definitely cannot do an MBA, could I please ask you to point me in the direction of cpt course that would allow me to continue my work at the present company.
    I currently work as an intern in a large architecture office with multiple divisions like - architecture, structural, mechanical, interior design, marketing teams, accounting, etc.

    I highly appreciate any help coming my way.

    Thank you

        Okay... you will be voilating f1 law if you go on cpt from day one. This will give you a chance to be eligible for h1 but uscis will not approve your h1b status...
        If you go for cpt it needs to be a integral part of your studies... Meaning without it school will not let you graduate... Please be very careful when you use cpt... Look for reviews of the school before you join... Good luck..
