Education is one of the best investments you can make.  U.S.A. has a lot to offer: the most prestigious universitites, top ranked education anywhere in the world, latest technology and a very multicultural population.  USA has about 4800 universities of higher learning wherein the scope and the range of programmes are vast. "I now think that the decision to pursue my Masters in USA was the best decision I took. The education system here is so great and flexible. The Quality standards of US institutions are among the best in the world."  said Miss. Minal Dharak who is currently pursuing MBA in Long Island University.

Mr. Dmitry Sherbakov, Associate Director of International Recruitment, City University of Seattle said "Companies around the world are increasingly looking for employees who are able to work across geographical, political, and cultural borders.The ability to easily navigate various cultural contexts and the experience dealing with people from diverse backgrounds are extremely valuable skills many businesses are looking for today. Study in USA provides students with exposure to the whole world and gives them the opportunity to acquire these skills.  During their studies in the US, students can establish an extended international network of friends, many of whom will become leaders in the business communities of their countries." Also the good part is that there are a number of universitites that now take students with 15 years of education as opposed to the earlier criteria of 16 yrs of education. Edwise will help you with many  institutes that would enroll students into an MBA or MS program after BCom or BSc degree.

A large number of scholarships, fellowships and assistantships are also available to international students. The criteria for financial assistance is based on merit and rarely on need. The amount and the type of assistantships vary according to course, level of study, department and university. Apart from scholarships one can avail of an education loan from various Indian banks/ private financial institutions.

On completion of the course, students are allowed to work for 12 months to 29 months known OPT (Optional Practical Training). Planning well in advance is the key to the successful admission to the USA university.
