Indian students can’t let go of business and engineering even in the UK

Business courses are the favourite by a long shot among Indians studying in the UK. Of the over 17,000 Indian students who enrolled in British universities in 2017-18, up to 7,625 signed up for degrees in business and administrative studies, according to data provided by information portal Studying-in-UK.org. This isn’t surprising, though, since an overwhelming majority of Indian students looking to study these subjects prefer business schools abroad, according to a 2016 Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) survey.
