Migration is the process of crossing the national or international broader for the sake of getting a high paid job, education, better living standard, prosperity, settlement, and other diverse motives. This thesis is focused on the surging growth of Nepalese younger generation people going abroad for higher education and work. The question discussed in this master study is about why they are willing to leave the home country, and what economic benefits they get from it.The Logistic regression is applied to find the relationship between several independent variables and dependent variables for labor and educational migrationfrom Nepal. Furthermore, factor analysis, Normality test, Reliability test, and descriptive analysis have been conducted. Unemployment, limited fields of studies (one of the factors causing educational migrationin Nepal), and a better standard of living have a significant effect on migration. After Factor analysis, and Reliability test of the variables, The Net Present Value (NPV) method is used to discuss the economic benefits of labor and educational migration from Nepal to Australia and GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries.After computing the Net Present Value for three different conditions (NPVMN>0, NPVMAN>0, and NPVUGCC>0), all three nullhypotheses are rejected. More extensive analysis can be conducted from various cross-country data on labor and educational migration from Nepal using different statistical methods in future. Keywords: Human Capital, Higher Education, Educational Migration, Labor Migration.
