The US boasts outstanding cultural and economic reputation

The land of the free, the home of the brave, where people go to follow their dreams – these ideas, in conjunction with the high level of educational provision, have long drawn students from all the all over the world to come and study in the US.

It is easy to see the appeal. The US has been the top destination of choice each year in the QS TopMBA Applicant Survey with its leading schools well represented in the QS Global MBA Rankings 2018. Indeed, no country can match the US in terms of the sheer volume of the world’s best business schools.

As an Anglophone region, America is popular for both English-speaking students and for those who would like to improve their conversational ability in the world-leading language of business.

The culture of the US will of course be familiar to nearly everyone in the world as a consequence of the widespread dissemination of US popular culture throughout the 20th and 21st centuries – particularly in film and television.

Another US contribution to world culture was the concept of business education – borne out of the necessities of the country’s transition to a highly industrialized economy in the late 19th century.
