An online degree offers a way for those outside the United States to learn skills and obtain qualifications that will potentially help you to secure a job and make earning a work visa and future immigration easier.

Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

A master’s of business administration is an in-depth study of how to run and operate a business. An MBA looks great on any resume and is something that all employers will value. It is suitable both for those looking to apply for a management position in an existing company and for those who one day hope to start their own business. The MBA is viewed throughout the world as the gold standard to which those looking to run a business should aspire to.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Nursing is a profession that is always hiring and most nursing degrees and experience will be accepted in countries other than those of their origin. Online degrees make it possible for anyone around the world to study a BSN from a university in the United States. BSN holders in the United States often earn much better salaries than those with other degrees, making the BSN a great investment and a fantastic first step on a long and prosperous career path. You can also later pursue a BSN to DNP online course that will upgrade your BSN into a doctor of nursing practice degree (DNP). The DNP has a greater focus on the role of clinical science in disease spread, prevention and treatment and is aimed at those who already possess a BSN or similar qualification. Online doctoral nursing programs are one of the best ways to leapfrog a career in nursing forward and if you pursue a BSN you should consider taking it further when you can.


Engineering is a skill that is required by a wide range of businesses and industries. Engineering is a diverse qualification that opens many doors, from construction to consumer electronics. Engineering is a degree that works particularly well in partnership with another qualification. For example, a computer science degree alongside engineering allows one to apply for a job in the electronics manufacturing sector.
