STUDY IN USA
With a variety of options to spend and to choose from, USA has been an amazing place for a student to live in. With globally recognized and flexible educational programs, students can get something more than they desire. Apart from academics, a student can also consider the culture and the style of living of the United States.
Another reason to choose to Study in USA is post studies OPT options. OPT (Optional Practical Training) is a period during which undergraduate and graduate students with F-1 status who have completed or have been pursuing their degrees for more than nine months are permitted by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to work for at most one year on a student visa towards getting practical training to complement their field of studies. F-1 students are usually permitted a total of 12 months of practical training. Post the 12 months completion, students from STEM background (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics degree) may also be eligible to apply for up to 24 months extension on OPT.
USA ranks the top for having around 60 percent of the world’s best universities, giving an individual the best options for future.
When comes to a choice between USA and India for Master’s, undoubtedly, USA stands out. The prime reason for it being so is the salary package offered to a fresher is way above compared to graduates from average B-schools in India. Another reason is, there are scopes of immigration post studies and the pay-scale in the US is far more lucrative than it is in India. In case the person comes back to India, he/she will have a greater number of opportunities if at all he/she has studied or worked in the US.
