The Institute of International Education released the Open Doors report on International students studying in the USA today. The press release highlighted many interesting facts including:

  • International students contributed $17.8 billion to the US economy during the 2008/2009 school year.
  • Overall, the International student population grew by 8% to an all-time high of 671,616.
  • India sent the most students (103,260) to the US for the 8th year in a row, and grew at +9% versus year ago.
  • China was #2 in overall numbers (98,510), and grew at +21% versus year ago.
  • Business and Management was the top field studied, representing 21% of total International students.

After I read the press release, I explored the IIE website and found 52 links for funding Business and Management education in the United States! Click here to check them out.

  2. Hi, how I can pay for the mba programme and what i should do ?

  3. Hi Ahmed, A good first step is to talk to your school’s Financial Aid adviser. They’ll have the greatest insight into scholarships, fellowships, and loans available. They will also be able to help you with the application process. Good luck!
