the advantages and disadvantages of studying abroad and learning finance in different countries
The studying abroad is becoming a hot topic, which concerns by more and more
parents. In this modern and competitive society, many wealthy families and even working
families all will strive to work in order to save the cost of the tuition of their children’ overseas
studying. When their children grow up and start to enter universities or even they are in primary
schools, they will be sent to accept more professional knowledge in foreign and developed
countries than the domestic. Because this situation happened, these parents, especially in
developing countries, believe that foreign educational philosophy and methods are more
advanced than their countries, a number of students choose study abroad has been growing
in recent years. However, under this situation, we should think about whether studying abroad
is suitable for these students. Moreover, as we know that it is true that a large proportion of
students will choose to study finance in foreign countries’ universities. So what advantages and
disadvantages does studying finance in foreign countries have. Some people agree that children
should conform to this trend and go to overseas to study as long as their families have enough
economic ability.Finance could tell students how to manage and earn money, which might lead
students to have a satisfied job and beautiful future. In contrary, I have a view that sending
children to study abroad and choosing finance as major blindly is not a sensible decision.
Depending on some reports, the number of children who go outside to study that will result in
brain drain, in particular for some developing countries, like India and China. Studying finance
blindly only causes that students lose the interesting and influences students’ schoolwork in
universities. So this essay will discuss the benefits and weakness about studying abroad and
studying finance in different countries.
First, there is no denying that overseas study and learning finance in foreign countries
could bring a lot of demerits for us, but it is an effective and good way to train children’ the
ability of independent living and studying that let children stay away from their parents and
study in other countries. Although, at the beginning, many children will feel lonely and afraid
when they come to an unknown place, meet people of different races and speak another language
for the first time, it is these experiences that could teach these international students how to
develop themselves and careers in the future without the assistant from their parents. These hard
and unforgettable experience will become a valuable wealth. Besides overseas learning can
expand the children’s horizons. Basically, living a long time in foreign countries could result in
children speaking the second language fluently and learn about another country’s culture and
custom deeply. Learning finance overseas that could allow students to better understand and
use the knowledge of this subject. For example, in China, it is generally acknowledged that
students can only learn some theoretical knowledge from textbooks. The more worrying thing is
that university’s living is relaxing and wonderful for Chinese students. After they try to learn in
high schools, pass the cruel entrance examination and enter the ranking top universities. The
thing they do not know is that university education is more useful for their future than the
learning from high schools. So this is the different point between Chinese and western education.
It is important that professor will combine of practical and theoretical in foreign finance
learning. For instance, universities will give a chance for students to use virtual money to buy
and sell stocks to help...
