More US students head to India

For decades, the dream of a significant section of Indian students was to study in the United States and work there. But now, a 'reverse trend,' albeit with a smaller number to begin with, may take shape with American students coming to India for learning.

For decades, the dream of a significant section of Indian students was to study in the United States and work there. But now, a 'reverse trend,'

albeit with a smaller number to begin with, may take shape with American students coming to India for learning.

An American delegation, led by Senator Michael B Enzi which includes Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings is on a mission to study the educational system in India and how the country is able to churn out a large number of highly-skilled professionals.

"As Secretary of Education, I am anxious to see how you all and how others around the world develop human capital and talent. Certainly you in

India have done that and you are doing that. That's why so many industries and American companies are coming here to grow and expand," Spellings said.


The US delegation also visited the offices of software major Infosys, Texas Instruments, and the GE's research and development centre and also

met some Google officials. Spellings said the number of US students in India is definitely going to 'accelerate.'
