Graduate Programs
for International Students in the United States

The U.S. MBA Program

Most U.S. MBA programs are two years in duration, which to some people seems too long. Why spend the extra year abroad and out of the work force when one year could suffice? The answer is that the MBA was a U.S. creation, so to get the "real" MBA experience, you should go to the U.S. to study. Studying and living in the United States will give you an understanding of how business is done here, but you will also meet with classmates from all over the globe who will add to your information on the global marketplace. Also, an MBA program in the U.S. is both theoretical and practical, with hands-on application of theory. But these are not the only reasons.

Economics

The old adage about it being a small world has never been more correct. With advances in the technologies of communications and transportation occurring at a dizzying pace, we can be literally almost anywhere on the planet in a matter of hours and virtually within seconds. These changes have led to a tremendous increase in the need for individuals with training related to international issues. While there are a number of fields of study one can pursue in order to gain this experience, graduate study in economics is one of the most flexible and effective. With most of the best graduate programs in economics located in the United States, looking at U.S. programs is an excellent place to start.

Executive Education

American colleges and universities typically have departments or schools of business that offer degrees at the undergraduate (bachelor) and graduate (master and doctorate) levels. In addition, many leading business schools offer programs for experienced business people, allowing them to return to campus to explore new ideas, to be updated in their field or in areas with which they are unfamiliar, and leave with fresh approaches to business issues. This type of educational program falls into the broad category of "Executive Education." What these programs offer and how one can learn more about them is the purpose of this article.

Advanced Law Degrees

You have received your Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree and want to pursue further academic study in the field of law. What is the next step? For students planning a career in academic or other work that emphasizes legal scholarship, the logical step may be to apply to a doctoral program.

MBA For Professionals

Executive MBA programs are designed for the working professional who is already on a promising career track. Sometimes executive MBA programs are a good fit for executives, sometimes for the aspiring executive. They require significantly more work experience for acceptance than do traditional MBA programs, occasionally even requiring increasing budget or management responsibility. It is not unusual for an executive MBA program not to require applicants to take a Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT) since the work experience requirement demonstrates knowledge in many of the business areas the exam tests.

Psychology

Psychology is the study of human behavior and thought, and it offers one of the most diverse programs of study at any university. As such, it provides students with a wide spectrum of opportunities, both while studying in an academic setting and while applying their knowledge outside the walls of the academy.

Transitioning into Engineering

Many non-engineers are unaware of the vast job opportunities available to individuals with advanced engineering degrees. The best path to a satisfying career in high technology is an advanced degree in engineering. But what about students who have majored in such subjects as physics, biology, and math, or even history and music? Despite the seeming discrepancy between your undergraduate major and your aspiration for graduate education in engineering, it is possible to find a program that will allow you to earn an MS degree in engineering without a prior Bachelor's degree. Several such programs exist in the United States, and if you are interested, your goal should be to find one that best matches your particular situation. By building upon prior, non-engineering undergraduate coursework, you can turn a non-engineering background into an asset. Successful students who choose this mid-career pathway can come from such diverse undergraduate backgrounds as math, music, physics, chemistry, biology, education, English, psychology, business, and the fine arts.

Women in Engineering

Engineering is an exciting career. Engineers make society better through problem solving, teamwork, and leadership. Projections have shown that the United States will have a shortage of engineers in the near future. However, currently only about 10% of all practicing engineers in the United States are women, and less than 20% of students studying engineering are women. Because of these low numbers, female engineering students can sometimes feel isolated and misunderstood. Many universities and colleges have created Women in Engineering (WIE) programs to provide support, information, and activities to encourage women to complete engineering degrees. Some universities and colleges have Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) programs, which have a focus on students not only studying engineering, but the science disciplines as well. These WIE and WISE programs, because they are supported by the university, show that the university is committed to educating women engineers. Most of them have fairly common objectives and activities.

Women's Studies

The question is often asked, "Why Women's Studies?" This interdisciplinary area of study offers something few programs can at the graduate level—advanced education in a variety of fields tailored to each student's interests and needs. Rather than studying a specific field such as biology or Victorian literature, students in Women's Studies might choose to study in a variety of fields that meet their interests—from literature to history to communication to psychology to education to film to environmental law. What brings it all together is the focus on the role of women in these areas.

Engineering Programs

Engineering education is drawing record numbers of students to the United States from around the globe with good reason. Those with an engineering education possess the ability to make a real difference in their world, whether it be a local environmental improvement project, designing and developing artificial organs, or designing vehicles of the future for a major manufacturer. The broad range of careers available to engineers, and the rising demand for those with technical knowledge, make those with an engineering degree highly desirable to employers.
