Increased funding in Carnegie Mellon University

Increased funding in Carnegie Mellon University – The Science and Engineering Research Board of the Government of India has signed an agreement with CMU to offer five fellowships every year to its PhD (Doctoral) students.

The total financial commitment of SERB is US $ 2.4 million, which will be disbursed over a period of five years, starting Fall 2016.


CMU is one of the most popular universities in USA among Indian students. India hosts the biggest section of CMU alumni, after USA. Last year, over 1,300 Indian students attended CMU. Students from India form one of the largest foreign student groups of the largest foreign student groups of CMU. CMU is a top global research university with over 13,285 students; 98,000 alumni and 5,000 faculty/staff. The varsity has been an innovation hub since its founding in 1900. CMU consists of seven schools as well as colleges and has campuses in Pittsburgh, Qatar and Silicon Valley. It offers degree-granting programs around the world, including Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and Latin America. Around 35% of CMU’s students are from 115 countries outside the US. CMU students are employed by some of the most innovative companies of the world.

MBA in USA – Currently there are more than 450 institutions offering MBA programs in the U.S., with dozens of different concentrations. An MBA degree from an accredited university is one of the most prestigious and recognizable business degrees at the master’s level. Since courses are very diverse and focus on various topics, it offers a wide range of career opportunities.

The process of choosing an MBA program can be daunting, especially if you are an international student. Researching your options and getting a grip on what preparations to take is big task. Here are some factors to consider as you start this process to help you make the best decision.

  1. Accreditation: It might not be first on your list but it is an important factor: Choose an institution that is accredited. This is a good way to make sure the institution you are researching offers a qualitatively sound program.

The number of institutions offering MBA programs is rising, especially online options, but this doesn’t mean that every institution offers you the same value for your money. Since an MBA is a big investment, you want to make sure that you get the best value for your money. Accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International tends to be most prevalent among U.S. programs.

  1. Requirements: While looking at various MBA programs you want to get a clear picture of the requirements. What tests do you have to take? Is an essay or an interview a requirement? Will references help your acceptance?

Every program has different types of requirements or requires different test scores to be accepted. You want to make sure that you know what to expect and that you take the appropriate amount of time to prepare yourself.

If your bachelors’ degree doesn’t match the MBA program directly, you might have to take some additional undergrad courses to be accepted. It will be up to you to decide to take these courses in your home country, online or at the U.S. institution.

  1. Types of MBAs: The MBA degree is offered in various shapes and sizes: traditional or on-campus, professional, accelerated, executive, part-time and online. While part-time options may be difficult for international students due to immigration requirements, the other varieties are a consideration.

Your background will influence your choice in this matter.

If you are a professional with a number of years work experience, you might benefit from a professional, accelerated or executive MBA. Generally, the average age is higher in these programs, and you’ll find people with comparable experiences.

Are you fresh out of college? If so, you might be more comfortable in a full-time, on-campus MBA program. These generally have a more mixed student body, and offer more face time with professors.

Some MBA programs do require extracurricular or volunteering experience, which is not a common focus in undergrad programs elsewhere in the world. Keep this in mind when you are applying straight out of college.

  1. Faculty: Once you made your decision on what type of MBA and perhaps a specialization, researching the faculty might help you make your final decision. Class sizes are generally a lot smaller in the MBA program and the relationships that you build with your professors can take you a long way in your career.

Once you narrow down your options, start looking into faculty to see if the professors’ work experience, or even research background, align with your interests. Connecting with these professors will help you make the most of your time and could give you an advantage in furthering your career.

  1. Finances: An MBA degree can be costly – costlier than other master’s programs. Since scholarships and financial aid are limited for international students, you are required to have all the necessary funding before applying for the appropriate visa.

Universities will offer employment options or graduate assistantships to international students, and it is definitely worth exploring those options before you start, but keep in mind they are limited and highly competitive.

  1. International community: Researching the international community at an institution could be part of your personal decision-making process. If a university has a big international student community, it might be easier for you to settle in and feel at home.

It also gives you the opportunity to expand your horizons and get to know all kinds of cultures. However, if you’re looking for the all-American experience, the percentage of international students might not be one of the criteria for you.

US universities prefer to work with recruitment agencies globally

Recruitment agencies – It is official! US universities prefer to work with recruitment agencies globally, to attract students. As per a recent survey of Bridge Group, 49% of US universities actively recruit students from all parts of the world for their programs – including the pathway programs.

This is a major, but positive departure from the past, when universities shied away from using the services of agents. After realizing that the success of UK and Australian universities’ recruitment efforts were mostly because of the usage of agencies, US universities have started adopting this practice, which will have a positive impact on getting more number of students from all over the globe.

Manhattan Review India (MR) is actively helping students to select the right programs and universities that meet their profile. Where required, we also help students to choose from hundreds of universities that we actively partner with – only if they are suitable for the profile and requirement of students.  As always, students are our first priority.

Public or Private? – Students aspiring to study in the USA are confronted with the dilemma of whether to study in Public or Private Universities. A wrong decision during this dilemma could lead to ‘costly’ mistakes and affecting the career adversely.

Public Universities are those that are funded by the respective states within the USA. Cost of education is cheaper in public universities since they are meant to ‘educate’ the public of the state.  Also, it is a requirement that public universities have to prefer domestic ‘in-state’ students over students from other states of USA and other countries. While admission is definitely possible for international students in public universities, it has to be kept in mind that they (the international students) fall under the ‘second’ priority of applicants. Size of public universities range from average to huge – some even having more than 25,000 students in their programs. The attractive reason for considering public universities is the costs, which are at least 30% lesser than private universities.

Private universities, on the other hand, are very popular among applicants both domestic and international. Top universities like Harvard, Stanford, MIT etc. are private universities that attract the best talent world-wide. Cost of education is undeniably higher, but well worth the dollars spent. The quality of education and the learning + networking opportunities are unparalleled in private universities.  Quality, dynamism, approach and opportunities (for learning and employment) are the ‘strengths’ of popular private universities, and this definitely scores over public institutions. The biggest attraction is the availability of funding (financial aid) in private universities. Because of endowments, grants and donations, private universities grant financial aid to students, including international students, based on their merit. This reason attracts more number of students to private universities – more than for public universities.

For those students who are cost-conscious and with a tight budget, state universities are a safe bet, but with a risk of limited chance for enrollment. For performers, limited budget will not be an inhibiting factor in private universities, since they award ‘aid’ or assistantships to students.  MR advises its students to have a mix of both public and private universities within their list to apply. An equal preference of both public and private will give them a chance to ‘choose’. And that could make all the difference between making a right or wrong decision on their academic careers.

MR’s latest offering – two wonderful packages – have become a big hit among our students who are grabbing the most attractive offers that are not available elsewhere. If you already know of the new offers, don’t delay in taking them. If you want more information on these wonderful packages to help you study in the USA, rush to your Center and discuss with our friendly counselors/managers.

Scams and Frauds in USA

Scams and Frauds in USA – Now is the time for most students to join US universities. In the new environment, there can (and will) be many situations that could affect them adversely. Like in other countries, there are scammers who are ready to do fraudulent activities and cheat the students new to the US system – education and living.

The below given information was officially circulated by the US universities during the NAFSA Convention 2016, in order to help students escape the cheating and frauds that happen.

Phone scams: Some students receive calls purportedly from FBI, Homeland Security, Immigration, IRS, Police and District Attorney Office etc. When students verify online, the numbers ‘match’ with the name of the organization mentioned. This is known as ‘spoofing’.

Audio Scams: There may be recorded or live calls asking to purchase ‘Cash Cards or Vouchers’ of $2,000 or more, for making payment of “International Student Fee” or “Education Tax” etc.

Mail Scams: You may receive emails with the name “DHS Documents” asking for money to be paid for various purposes.

Online Scams: Students may be tempted with offers like “Green Card lottery” and asked for their full information.

Employment Scams: Since there is a time limit of 90 days for students to get a job/internship after obtaining an OPT card, they will be under pressure to get some job or the other. At such times, consultants will try to pitch in with offers like employment and for training students for interviews etc. In the training, they will coach students to say that the student is on EAD that was sponsored by employer for a Green Card. Actually, the student will be on ‘post-completion OPT’. By telling such a lie, the student faces the risk of deportation!

Third-party Tax Forms: Student may receive “Form 4506T – Request for Transcript of Tax Returns” by email, asking for payment of tax etc. This form is illegal and should not be acted upon.

Students should not fall into the trap of accepting or agreeing to the threats or demands of callers or mails. Instead, ask for the name & phone no. of the caller, request for his badge (ID) number and indicate that they would get back to him/her, if it is a phone call. Don’t get intimidated by threats that if they disconnect or don’t pay they could be arrested. That does not happen, since no official law enforcement official can demand money or payment immediately and threaten with arrests etc. for non-compliance.

What to do: Contact the International Student Office of your university and inform them of the issue. They will take up the matter and help you identify the scam/fraud.

To help new/unsuspecting students, universities are conducting orientations, send emails, conduct workshops on OPT, post warnings on Facebook, create web pages about these scams and give handouts etc.

Students can also visit the USCIS webpage on “common scams and reporting procedure”. And, SEVP has published warnings on their website about scams for both students and universities.

A few more hints for the students to save themselves from such frauds,

Do not reveal your contact information for all. Keep it private.

Do not cash cheques from unknown sources

In case of doubt, contact the Designated School Official (DSO) about unethical employment practices by employers, or if students receive any suspicious calls etc.

Please be careful and all the best with your sojourn to the USA.

‘Free’ Bonanza – For those of you who are looking for Spring or Fall 2017 admission, Manhattan Review is offering two new packages, which are ‘Free’ services. You will get all the Admission services Free of cost. For full details, contact our counselors at any of our branches nearest you.

Take advantage of this fantastic, ‘once in a blue-moon’ offer. Now!!
