Good experience overall, more beneficial for students with a non-business background

Tips: Great environment for international folks. Everyone here embrace diversity and inclusion. It was not an easy transition to move from a happening city to a calmer place like Durham but the events at Duke made up for the lack of places to explore around. The course is more useful if you come from a non-business background. Placements have not been great due to the job market.

Likes (Part time work): Lots of opportunities to do on-campus work. The community is welcoming to hire international students and no problems have ...

The Duke name helps in getting opportunities.

Tips: Not a major cultural shift, since this course attracts a lot of Indians. You should be actively participating in activities around you or you will miss out. I did not receive any scholarships. The university was very satisfactory, it offers guidance, security, and a platform to make the best of your career. As for the programme, it's as good as you make of it. It is designed to give you an introduction to most things, not a deep drive, it opens new horizons of thinking and changes your perspecti...

Great opportunity, but be clear and aware.

Tips: Make sure you have a clear goal in mind what you want to achieve after graduation. Keep aside a certain amount for living expenses, as finding an on-campus job is tricky. Most master's programs do not have diversity, so do not be shocked if you do not see it here.

Likes (Indian Food): One can get a good Indian meal in the $10-$20 range. There are good restaurants, and Indian groceries are pretty accessible. Check out Lime & Lemon, Indian Monsoon, and Anjappar in Carry as a few good options. Eating out in the US regu...

Duke- A fun and memorable experience

Tips: Students coming here should research more about the course and be open to change. I would advise on networking with peers and alumni for advice and support. Explore the campus for fun activities and make use of the resources available. Overall, I would ask students to focus on their job search and proactively look for opportunities.

Best faculty, course and campus blend you will ever see.

Tips: Coming to the US for the first time will be a big culture shift. It does take time to adjust to the people living here but one will soon adjust. The classes and assignments do take up a lot of time. The best part of Duke is the flexibility of choosing courses and catering to one's own needs. Scholarships are rarely available. The course is value for money because of the faculty members and the network you develop here.

Likes (Student Life): Best part about the campus is the architecture. Built in a gothic style it sh...
