10 things to know before studying in USA


Studying in the USA is an enticing opportunity to not only augment one’s career prospects but also enhance their world view. The challenging experience will help prepare students for the ordeals faced in the real world. USA is a prominent study abroad destination that has a distinctive education system. It comprises of public universities, private and technical institutions, Ivy Leagues and community colleges, all of which provide impeccable programs.
After an arduous application process, if you have managed to bag a place amongst one of the top US colleges and universities, here are the 10 things you should know before you start studying in USA:
  1. Punctuality
    Being late is looked down upon, when looking to reach classes during courses in USA make sure you arrive 10-15 minutes earlier than the asked time. Punctuality is highly regarded. Not only will it woe the professors but also allow you to settle in and get a feel of the environment. US colleges and universities imbibe in students a variety of skills out of which punctuality takes a foremost position.
  1. Food
    Being a country know for diverse cultures, nearly every imaginable cuisine is offered in the country. Keep in mind that food portions in the USA tend to be quite big. Studying in the USA is beyond what you learn in classrooms, thus seeping in its culture from all possible avenues becomes necessary. And there’s no better way to do this, than from food. Eating together is also an excellent way of interacting with people and broadening one’s network circle.
  1. Use the subway
    Although students may be tempted to take a cab, using the subway will not only save cost but also allow you to reach your destination sooner.
    US colleges and universities tend to be located in areas that are easy accessible through these means of public transport.
  1. Give Tips
    Although giving tips to waiters are looked down upon in certain countries, it is a common culture in USA. Therefore, customers are expected to tip after their meals. Many restaurants follow the expectations of being paid a certain percentage of the bill. As a student who has decided to
    study in USA, you will tend to go out for meals with your friends, being aware of the same norm will save you from having that embarrassing moment.
  1. Health Insurance
    Unlike some countries, USA does not have a universal health insurance. There are private insurance providers, who provide their services. Thus, inform your insurance provider regarding your study plans, so that they can curate a health insurance plan for you.
  1. Driving in USA
    Students should be aware of the fact, that unlike India, USA drives on the right side of the road. Moreover, honking is prohibited in certain states, unless absolutely necessary. Since in India we are accustomed to honk at the drop of a hat, it becomes important to be aware of the rule to avoid falling prey to this mistake.
  1. Universities are called Colleges
    In the USA, the terms universities and colleges are used synonymously. Thus, to avoid confusion know that they both mean institutions of higher education.
    US colleges and universities are known to provide impeccable education facilities to its students.
  1. Study Material is expensive
    Textbooks used for reference during
    courses in USA are often exorbitantly priced. However, there are other avenues to undertake reference work which include, second hand books, online resource materials, libraries, borrowing etc. Thus, you will never be at the dearth of resource materials.
  1. Involve yourself in sports
    Involving yourself in sports doesn’t necessarily mean playing it, but can also be understood as being an active onlooker. Sports such as basketball and baseball are famous and often form a large component of the university experience. Thus, having a brief idea regarding the said sports will allow you to be a part of conversations during your
    study in USA experience.
  1. Flexibility
    Upon enrollment of a program, if students wishes to change their majors they are at the liberty to do so. Not only this, they also present the opportunity to switch between universities as an exchange student. Thus, the US education system is known for its incorporation of flexibility in programs.
Now that you are well aware of certain nuances of the culture, you are ready to commence your study in USA journey.

Attainment of an education abroad will teach the professionals contemporary management skills; harness their critical thinking and analysis abilities. All of the above, further improvises their communication skills which will help in team building.
There are multitude reasons, such as the great earning potential an EMBA graduate holds, to pursue an EMBA; upon fully realization of the same can one be completely motivated to attain the same. The rising popularity of EMBA courses can be attributed to a variety of reasons:
  • Interaction
The EMBA course is not only attractive to individuals from the business world but also to people from different fields of study. Overseas education through the medium of this program will enable students to expand their networking opportunities. Socializing with individuals will present you with a multitude of job opportunities, hence allowing you to have an enhanced study abroad experience. The greatest benefit of pursuing an EMBA is not only the knowledge you will inculcate in the classroom but also the interactions you make with your fellow classmates, which will present you with immense job opportunities through the networking you have undertaken. To survive in today’s competitive world, continuously developing new networks will be of immense significance, which this study abroad program allows you to.
