International Students Flock to American B-Schools

Among Americans, the MBA is now the most popular master’s degree. And that trend continues with foreign students, where business is studied by 30.4% of all graduate school enrollees. Trailing behind business is engineering (18%) and computer and information sciences (12.3%), health sciences (4.4%), and education (4.3%).

Overall, two-thirds of foreign students are studying business or STEM-related fields in American undergraduate and graduate programs, nearly 18% higher than American students according to Brookings.
