Hi,

I would suggest you to apply for Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). The average salary after the degree is great, plus graduate assistant opportunities are also good. It is near to boston and New York, so many employers near the place to search jobs. This college is 150 years old. I really feel benefited studying here and the exposure is also great

If you have any queries reply me back.

Thanks.

Kaur

WPI is the great choice.

WPI MSIT is a step approved program. It is a reputed institute - 150 years old. The career development center actively helps students with placements opportunities and the students are getting decent packages, check on WPI.edu career web page for more information.

Thanks

Hi,

MSIT in WPI is a STEM approved course. Good reputation, a mix of classes to enhance technical and management skills sets.

Do post if you have any queries.

Thanks,
Kaur

I think its a great school and love the location close to Boston minus the cost of Boston. As with any University in the USA Indians and Chinese make the bulk of students in any MIS/IT class but a lil less at WPI compared to other schools like UTD/UIC.

For placement information check the website.

DS at WPI isn't part of the School of Business, You will have to ask about it in another forum.

The I20 amount is about 40k.

Hey!

1. On campus jobs: about 40 GA are available exclusive to the business school students,most of the students end up getting GAs sooner or later.the pay is about 10 per hour.
Some students get it from other departments which pays higher,but these jobs are limited ( prolly 3 or 4).

2.they are two career fairs,Sept and Feb.most of the students ,this year,who got summer internships / co op ended up getting calls from career fairs.

The CDC will help you with the standard stuff but it's your hard word ( implied research and networking) which will land you an internship.

Let me know if you have any queries!

P.s. tag me for a quicker reply.

Hi Guys,

I recieved admit from WPI Foisie School of Business today. I have some doubts seniors. I will list some of my doubts below regarding admit letter.

1. The letter states that "We are pleased to inform you that you have been awarded a partial scholarship in the amount of $xxxx. This amount will automatically applied to your student account with the start of the second semester". What is partial scholarship? Will this scholarship be present for 1st, 3rd and 4th semester too? Or it depends on my performance in school?

2. The letter states that "Tution waivers are not provided assistantships". What is the difference between tution waivers and scholarships. Will I be able to apply for assistantships?

-->It depends you need to check with the school .

--> for WPI SoB there are no assistantships but you will be able to apply for GAs.
