    It is professional program. Regulatory affairs is a pretty new major and is a nice field to work in. People used to depend on experience to perform regulations. It is useful to develop a major for it.

    Many global pharmaceutical companies do not sponsor working visa. But it also happens in other field, besides regulatory affairs.
