"In today's knowledge economy, intellectual currency is getting transferred from one country to another and the physical boundaries are not hindrance anymore when compared to the situation three decades back. No wonder, universities in United States are attracting students from all over the world. Two primary reasons of such attraction are (i) quality of education provided by educational institutions in United States is very high, and (ii) the return of investment on education is phenomenally high.
