We had previously posted an article about $5 billion dollars contributed to US Economy by students studying in University of Southern California.

Above research is validated by the research report "The Economic Benefits of International Education to the United States", published by NAFSA (Association of International Educators, National Association of Foreign Student Advisers).

Annually, NAFSA calculates the economic impact of international students and their dependents on the U.S. economy.

During the 2008-2009 academic year, NAFSA estimates that international students and their dependents contributed approximately $17.6 billion (1 billion has 1 followed by 9 zeros) to the U.S. economy.

    what a way the Americans has made it for the education field

    it is amazing and mind boggling to see the amount of money USA getting in the education field.


    i do not know why india which had the Nalanda University, now in ruins, was founded in 5 th century. Spread over an area of 14 hectares, this university was totally built in red clay bricks. The Nalanda University attracted scholars from all over the world. Even Chanakya or Kautilya was once, a student of this university. It was from this university, the seat of knowledge for the world that the light of knowledge spread all over.

    we have missed the bus

    our education is still not up to the mark

    the Americans has to be congratulated for making Education as great service and a business too

    thanks for your article
