USA Universities accepting 15 years of education

Unlike our Indian system, the USA education system follows a 4 years undergraduate curriculum for all the programs which is why the USA universities accept only 4 years of bachelor’s students in their master’s programs. 

If you are a student who is enrolled in a 3 years degree program like BBA, BCA, B. Com., BBM, etc in Indian universities, always wonder how to apply to the USA master’s program.

Do not worry, we have good news!
