I'm from the US and am currently doing undergrad at a US university but I studied at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology this summer and it convinced me that I would really prefer to get my PhD abroad. However, I have concerns about how credible that degree will be to US companies once I've gotten it (considering so many foreigners come to the US for higher education). So I'm wondering if US employers won't regard foreign degrees as highly? I really want to study outside the country, but obviously I don't want to do it if it has the potential to screw my future over. Schools I'm considering are NSU, HKU, NTU, and HKUST and maybe KAIST. All are in Asia. I'm most interested in going back to Hong Kong though. The type of job I'm looking for is something in R&D (I'm particularly interested in working in the field of space technology or biomedical something). Thank you for your time! I'm a bit stressed out about this and my thoughts might be somewhat scrambled here, so if you think there's anything I should clarify let me know.
