With the job scenario being dull in Europe and the U.S., many foreign students are heading to work or intern in India, reports Economic Times. Sunghoon Kim, an MBA student from Rotman School of Management, Canada, is interning at Infosys, as part of the instep programme. "The job market in Canada is not good. I think I will go to Korea or India, which are emerging fast and have better opportunities," says Sunghoon.
