Eligibility for EB2 with a 3 years Bachelor's and MBA from India


Recommended Posts


I have a question regarding eligibility for EB2. 
I am working in the US on a H1-B. My firm is starting the green card process for me starting with the PERM process and is assessing whether I can file under EB2. There is some confusion on that due to my academics. Here is the situation:
- I obtained a 3 year Bachelor's degree in Science from IIT Kharagpur in India. I have the degree certificate and the transcript. 
- I did a 4th year as well towards a Master's in the same institute but didn't complete the 5th and don't have a Master's therefore. I do have a transcript showing the completion of 4th year. Not sure if this is relevant but thought I would mention it.
- I then did a MBA (post graduate diploma in management) from IIM Ahmedabad in India. 
The educational requirement for my role is a Bachelor's degree. 
My firm hired an external agency for academic evaluation and their feedback is that my bachelor's degree and master's diploma combined are equivalent to a 4 year bachelor's degree in the US. This however is applicable only for H1-B and not for EB2. For EB2, I need to have a 'single degree equivalency' (i.e. my Bachelor’s should yield a standalone equivalency to a US Bachelor’s or my Master’s should yield a standalone equivalency to a US Master’s) and therefore I am not eligible for EB2. 
Is this true?
Thank you so much for your response in advance!

There are two points you have to focus 


1) Are you eligible to EB2 as per your education?




Ans)   Bachelor's degree in Science + MBA == USA Bachelor's degree .

 Generally for Eb2 category needs US degree + 5 years of relevant experience  


2)What is minimum educational requirement for your current job ?


 If you current job need Degree + minimum five years of experience then you can apply in EB2.
