Arizona State University, ranked no. 1 for Innovation, is in India to meet future students

Bangalore: After a hugely successful student recruitment drive earlier this year, top faculty of the Fulton Schools of Engineering, will be visiting India for a student recruitment drive between 4th – 12th November. They will be accompanied by the top faculty of the W. P. Carey Business School as well, who will be participating in the drive, to meet personally potential students who are interested in masters degrees in the fields of business, management and entrepreneurship.

During this recruitment drive, the senior faculty of the two schools will look to interact with future masters students who have applied to the university, as well as welcome all potential students to ASU by walking them through the courses and extra-curricular activities available and fielding questions they may have on the same.

The #1 ranked university in USA for innovation (ahead of #2 Stanford and #3 M.I.T) offers students the opportunity to enjoy 45+ engineering student organizations and student professional societies giving them leadership opportunities and hands-on experience. It also has a thriving entrepreneurship programme where enrolled students can start with original research, pitch business ideas and start companies as undergraduates and post baccalaureate students.

Said Holly Singh, Senior Director of International Students & Scholars Center “Arizona State University is committed to the wellbeing and academic goals of all our students. And, we are proud to be the top public university choice for international students and the diverse perspectives they bring to our community. My colleagues and I are thrilled to be meeting with potential students across India these next two weeks to share with them why ASU’s business, engineering, and arts and sciences programs are among the top programs in the United States for graduate study.”

The W. P. Carey School of Business is one of the largest business schools in the United States, with over 250 faculty, and more than 1,000 graduate, and 10,000 undergraduate students.

Close to 600 students from Chennai have applied for the graduate programmes at Arizona State University and if accepted, will not only gain top quality education, but will also have first-hand access to a thriving job market and entrepreneurship culture.
The number of foreign students in the US topped 1 million for the first time in 2016. Keeping this in mind, ASU believes that its focus on inclusivity as opposed to exclusivity, its work towards ensuring that research and innovation remains a priority and the fact that ASU has been ranked as the top public research university for international students (Open Doors report ,2016) sets it apart from other universities in the States. This sentiment is also reflected in its high enrolment rates viz. international students. Over 10,000 students from 135 international countries, including over 2,212 from India enrolled at Arizona State University for the 2016 fall session.
