The USA has a plethora of opportunities to offer you as an international postgraduate. There are a total of 4,360 universities in the USA and only 1700 of them are offering postgraduate courses out of which Harvard University is oldest. Like India, a master's degree in the USA also takes two years of full-time study to complete. Postgraduate courses and PhDs are very organized and well researched. Over 90,000 Indian students are pursuing Master's degrees or Ph.D. in the USA.
3. RETURN TO YOUR HOME COUNTRY
An overseas degree will award you international experience which makes you exclusive among others. It also opens the doors to networking opportunities. But in India, the companies will see you as another fresher just like other freshers. They will offer you the same salary which they are offering unless you have some industry skills which other candidates do not have. Once you certify them that you have required industry skills, then you can expect higher pay. So, if you want to gain recognition in your own country, then you should go for higher studies abroad.
