Career Mosaic, a global student recruitment firm, has recently signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with 20 American universities. According to an official announcement, Career Mosaic claims to actively disseminate information about participating universities, available courses, and scholarship opportunities to students in India through these collaborations.
The company claims to be crucial in facilitating various support services, such as student counselling sessions, institutional roadshows, application assistance, and other outreach initiatives, to help Indian students pursue higher education in the United States (US).
Career Mosaic aims to build strong relationships with accredited and progressive universities and high schools dedicated to establishing, expanding, or diversifying their international student body. The company is South Asia’s leading B2B agency, with student recruitment operations in 46 Indian cities, as well as all major cities in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand, as well as parts of the UAE, Nigeria, Turkey, and East Europe.
Speaking on the collaboration, Rafael Alvarado, Assistant Director, International Recruitment & Admissions, Kansas State University, Manhattan, said:
Partnering with Career Mosaic has been beneficial to the University in expanding to the South Asia Market and has provided us access to qualified applicants, generated meaningful contacts in the region and helped us unlock the potential that this part of the world has to offer.
According to the US Embassy in India, India has surpassed China as the leading source of students in the US. The embassy reported a record-breaking number of student visas issued during the summer of 2023 (June-August), exceeding 90,000, with Indian students getting one out of every four visas. In the previous year (2022), an unprecedented 125,000 student visas were issued to Indian nationals.
Abhijit Zaveri, Founder and director of Career Mosaic, stated:
Our collaboration with these prestigious US universities is a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to shaping the futures of countless students. Together, we aim to unlock the boundless potential to enable the study abroad aspirations of Indian students and help them to become global citizens.
As shown by Career Mosaic data from the previous year, nearly 75% of applications from students aspiring to study in the United States come from the Andhra Pradesh/Telangana region. In comparison, approximately 6% come from Gujarat. Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka all contribute significantly.
Career Mosaic began operations in 2002 with a vision of providing genuine, transparent advice to students seeking higher education abroad. Every year, the platform helps thousands of students realize their dreams of studying abroad by assisting them in exploring courses and opportunities in their chosen country, allowing them to launch their careers with an international degree in hand and cultural exposure second to none. Its processes are tech-driven, with the digital platform serving as the backbone. Its University & Course Finder Search Engine uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to match students to universities. The Application Management System is a collaborative and operational tool used by the team and affiliated agencies to manage student data.
