Ryan Pereira, senior education US adviser from USIEF, said they are flooded with queries from students about different
universities in the US. "All details can be found on www.chea.org. Students want to know if the universities are credited
or recognized and about the 10 best universities in the US." Haas is only happy with the increasing number of Indian
students opting for US as their study destination. "We love it when foreign students come to the US as we think we have
the world's best education system for undergraduate and graduate students. Some benefits of the US education system
include cutting-edge technology, extensive support services for international students, generous funding opportunities,
flexible curricula, and hands-on training programmes," he said.
An M Tech graduate in industrial engineering and operations from Powai agrees. She is going to purse her Ph.D in
computer science from IOWA State University in the US as she believes American universities have advance research
facilities.
