If F-1 OPT is used following the completion of an MS in computer science, can I get OPT again after completing an MBA?


A person typically qualifies for a new period of OPT after each educational level. The “master’s” period of OPT would be exhausted after completing an MS, so one would not qualify after then completing an MBA (i.e. master of business administration). A new period of OPT would likely not be available without a PhD. (22.Jan.2018)
