The leader in higher education
The United States has the most top-ranked universities in the world.
Across the world, international students and prospective employers still look to the U.S. as the #1 leader in higher education.
Global employers greatly value a U.S. degree thanks to the country’s innovative, career-focused approach to education through internships, co-op programs and hands-on, experiential learning in the university classroom.
Optional Practical Training
The U.S. government’s Optional Practical Training (OPT) program offers international graduates with a degree in a STEM discipline (science, technology, engineering or math) the opportunity to stay and work in the U.S. for up to three years. Participating in the OPT program gives graduates a significant advantage when searching for permanent employment in the U.S. and abroad.
