After completing my master’s degree in Computer Engineering, I worked on OPT for a while, and then switched to H1B. If I enroll in an MBA program now, will I be eligible for OPT again after I graduate?


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 the Computer Engineering degree. So, a new period of OPT would not be available based on the completion of an MBA program. (26.Jan.2023)
