Many candidates are reconsidering the expense and effort required to study in the US. American business schools have already seen international application rates decline by 14%

Leading MBA admissions consultant, Barbara Coward, says candidates should think hard about what they want to get out of their MBA experience in the US and assess their own appetite for risk.

“If you are someone who really, really wants to go to business school in the US, continue with your dreams but be prepared to be agile/flexible since the situation is so uncertain. If you are more risk averse, then it's best to consider a school outside the US.”

International students should take comfort in the fact that leading US schools are willing to take action on their behalf. 

The US remains home to the majority of the world’s top-ranked business schools and, once accepted into a US MBA or master’s program, you can still expect a strong return on your investment.
