As Philippine students start contemplating return to school, and everything that comes with it, some students are casting their eyes further afield to the country that gave us the college education system that we have today; the USA. In a country with 50 states and 280 million people, there is an incredible choice of courses and colleges available both at undergraduate and graduate level. It’s no longer Business/MBA or Liberal Arts, but a mouth-watering range of courses, many of which lead into the best paid and most sought-after jobs. Engineering is still in high demand, e-commerce is booming once again, teachers are in short supply, people with Mathematical, Analytical and Financial acumen are badly needed and anybody with communication skills combined with technology are worth their weight in gold!
On Friday May 28th, at the US Commercial Service, Embassy of the United States, 25/F Ayala Life-FGU Center, 6811 Ayala Avenue, Makati, there will be free seminars given, presenting a wide range of accredited colleges and universities from all across the USA – and all of these are still accepting applications for this September.
