It is not uncommon to hear the refrain about the United States of America as the land of opportunities! Rigorous accreditation systems ensure outstanding facilities, resources and faculty in most of the institutions and without any doubt the US continues to be a country with vast higher education opportunities for international students.Shevanti Narayan, country coordinator, educational advising services, United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF), says that the quality, choice, value and flexibility are some of the factors that make students choose USA over any other country in the world. The other advantage is the strict and rigorous accreditation systems that ensure outstanding facilities, resources and faculty and perhaps this is the reason why the country boasts of some of the world’s top-class universities.
Customise your qualification
Vinod Sharma, an MBA from University of Michigan, now vice-president, communications of a Singapore-based company, says that the education system in the US encourages one to think of what’s the next big idea.
“And one has the freedom and flexibility to design one’s own programme, collaborate and network with other departments,” says Sujata Yadav, a graduate student from Carnegie Mellon.
Interdisciplinary programmes are catching on
Engineering, Business and Management continue to be the top fields of study. Other popular fields of study include Life Sciences, Computer Science, Economics and Health Sciences. In recent years, there has been a changing trend with a growing demand for career-oriented fields such as Environmental Science/Studies, Biotechnology, Media and Communication, Art and Design studies and Law, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
But today, international students want to keep their options open so as to switch from one field to another easily. Students are choosing interdisciplinary programmes such as Healthcare with management, Law with MBA, or MBA with Public Health.
Plagiarism is beginning to become an issue. Unfortunately, many Indian students and researchers have been caught plagiarizing. This puts us in a bad light. As part of the pre-departure session, USIEF warns international students on the consequences and the unethical aspects of plagiarism.
And remember: never hesitate in asking questions from the teachers, or interrupting them, they would not mind. The point is that you are going there to study, and that should be the goal.

see phd can be done after the course in master degree. some times dual 5 years master+ phd courses available. but it is really difficult to into ivy league colleges as you dont have any background in economics. i would suggest you to first go for master in economics, then if you can adapt it than you may do phd, see engineering and economics are two different paths , its true that we do need economical model to run a business in our engineering corporation, however it will take time to adapt the things while learning masters. please think again if you really want to do it.
Hello Amreen, Scoring a 5 in IELTS is not considered a very good performance. Countries like US, UK, Canada want a minimum of about overall 6.5 in the IELTS test. For the admission part, no colleges take admission only on the basis of IELTS because it is a language proficiency test and not an aptitude test. The colleges require multiple other things like Academic references, Statement of purpose, School and college marks and other things depending on which country you are applying.
