    I always had a dream to study in the USA for better career growth and various opportunities. A common application form was submitted by me and for that, I had to pay an application fee of $70. They had also asked me to submit my 12th score of 8.8 GPA.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course allowed me to rely on principles and projects and gave me practical knowledge in labs and programs. There were very varied subjects that made me creative, constructive and resilient.

    I wanted to study in the USA. So I consulted a study abroad consultancy and they had recommended me to take admission here. I had to submit a common application form which they took $70 as an application fee. Other than this my high school score of 9.2 GPA was also counted.

    Course Curriculum :

    “Through the rigorous curriculum, I got the chance to learn advanced Economics in order to enhance my analyzing and problem solving skills. I could even work on my speaking, writing and understanding ability as the curriculum was highly practical based.

    I went to the USA to attend my cousin's wedding and my uncle recommended me to stay back and do my master's from here. I had good grades, so I applied to most of the great universities here and luckily I got in this one and decided to take admission to this university as my cousin is an alumnus of this college so, I applied through the online portal of the college and paid a nominal application fee of $70.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course is very updated and vast it has always attracted me as the curriculum taught me everything practically rather than teaching theoretically which was a big advantage to me.

    My elder sister was pursuing her master's from this college and she encouraged me to apply here as a degree from this college will change my life and after listening to her, I worked hard and gave my all in. I applied to the university via the common app which cost me around $90.

    Course Curriculum :

    The curriculum is more focused on independent work, each student does at least one design or research project advised by a member of the faculty and through this, we get the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge research or entrepreneurial product design. Also, many projects are interdisciplinary.
