"The United States has a very advanced educational system in business," said Taral Shah, 24, also from Ahmedabad. "The best commerce is in New York," said Mr. Shah, who already has one Masters in Commerce degree, as well as a Bachelors degree in accounting, both from Gujaret University. His career goal is to return to India upon graduation and pursue a career in banking management.
"India's higher education system is sound and it offers its students some excellent choices," said Monroe Senior Vice President of Student Financial Services Dr. Alex Ephrem, who immigrated from Tamil Nadu, to the United States in 1976. He earned a bachelor's degree in India and then earned a second Bachelors degree, as well as a Masters and Ph.D. from American universities. "But students and their families gain prestige when they study in the United States."
"Monroe College appeals to Indian students on several fronts. It is only a half-hour train or car ride to mid-town Manhattan. Our tuition is very competitive - a third of what it costs to attend some other MBA programs in New York. And our classes are deliberately kept small in order to preserve the tradition of caring established by the college's founders," said Dr. Ephrem. "Our happiness and, ultimately, our success, stems from the success of our students."
