There is no doubt that the United States attracts students from all over the world in different fields of study, skill sets, and experience. According to the Migration Policy Institute, in the 2016-2017 year alone, the U.S. hit a record of 1.1 million international enrollments!
But why the United States?
Universities, colleges and institutions across the country are known to provide excellent higher education, lead in several fields of research, offer various degrees, and provide a supportive experience for students. In addition to a great learning opportunity, studying in the U.S. allows a student to be among the best in his or her field, build a resume, and get the experience of living in the diverse United States.
Various institutions in the U.S. are top-ranked in the world due to the options of a degree available in a specific field versus similar institutions with limited fields of study outside of the country including: associates degree, bachelor’s degree, professional degree, master’s degree, and a doctorate degree. An Open Doors report shows the top five fields of study for international students have been Engineering, Business Management, Mathematics and Computer Science, Social Sciences, and Physical/Life Sciences.
Many employers seek the wide range of knowledge and experience that international students gain by studying in the U.S. American companies are increasingly seeking to have a stronger presence in the global marketplace. They often want to find employees who not only have multi-cultural skills, but also those that can help communicate, negotiate and conduct business across different cultures.
By studying in the U.S. the experience can also provide an opportunity to work in the U.S. Labor Market, boosting work experience and developing a reputable career. A lot of students are able to extend visas as they transition into the labor market.
