- The STEM Program will enable graduates to avail of a 3-year post-study work visa in the US
LeapScholar partners with the University of Delaware to launch a Master of Science (MS) in Finance postgraduate programme to Indian students aspiring to earn a master’s degree from the US in a hybrid format and at a much lower cost.
The MS in Finance program will be delivered to students online in the first semester in India and the remaining two semesters on-campus in Newark, Delaware. The hybrid format will reduce the overall cost of the programme by up to 30 per cent. The requirement for GRE test scores has been waived as a part of the eligibility criteria for the program.
Students who have completed a 3-year undergraduate degree or a 4-year engineering degree can apply for this program. The program has a STEM designation, which will enable Indian students to apply for a 3-year post-study work visa in the US upon graduation, like full-time international students.
Speaking on the collaboration with the University of Delaware, Vaibhav Singh, Co-Founder, LeapScholar, said, “At LeapScholar, we are focused on democratising international education and our innovative partnership with the University of Delaware is an important landmark in that journey. The prestigious MS in Finance program in a hybrid format will benefit Indian students and also help meet a growing demand for financial experts capable of practical, hands-on business problem-solving.”
The Spring session starts on February 6, 2024, and applications are now open for Indian students. The last date to apply is November 15, 2023.
