International student mobility is driven by destination country income, not university rankings
Increasing mobility of international students is a known trend. However, determinants of mobility differ by source and destination countries resulting in different patterns of enrollment. Income of destination countries has a much bigger influence than the ...

The newly industrializing economy like Brazil, India, China account for two-fifths of all outflows to any destination country in 2009. What are the drivers of mobility from developing countries?

International students contributed $17.7 billion in tuition and fee to the U.S. universities and colleges. Post-recession public higher education systems went through sharp budget cuts. For example, educational appropriations per FTE (full time enrollment) ...

For India, first-time enrollment increased by 40% after two years of flat growth. In contrast, first-time enrollment of Chinese grew by measly 5% as compared to over 20% growth in previous two years.

EAIE recognition for advancing research on international student segments and recruitment strategies
Higher education institutions are increasingly interested in not only expanding the number of international students on their campuses, but also diversifying the countries they come from. However, international student recruitment strategies have a major li...
Many institutions are missing the cornerstone of successful strategies--international students differ in their needs and preferences and treating all international students as same in terms recruitment strategies is inefficient and ineffective. A recent report, Student Segmentation for an Effective International Enrollment Strategy aims to bridge this gap.

Business Standard article on feasibility of recent UGC policy framework to attract foreign universities to India. It misses the reality of global #highered system with impractical barriers of ranking, deposit and not-for-profit status of foreign institutions. What are your thought?
Will foreign universities establish campuses in India? This has been one of the recurring questions over the last few years. Unfortunately, not only the question but also the corresponding answers have been far from the reality of global higher education and its fit with the needs of India. Foreign institutions with a different mix of prestige and profit motives that can be broadly classified as prestige-enhancing, prestige-seeking and profit-max...

Future of MOOCs is about proving sustainable and scalable business models, says Udemy President
In November 2012, The New York Times, ran a story " The Year of the MOOC " and asked what does a student want to get from MOOCs experience--"Most important, what do you get for your effort? Do you earn a certificate? A job interview? Or just the happy feeli...
The landscape of MOOCs is still dynamic and optimistic but continues to be challenging and uncertain. There is increasing competition and higher expectations for finding sustainable models. In the context of the barriers of recognition of MOOCs learning as transferable academic credits, non-academic professional development/corporate training based model is gaining traction.

This growth in international student enrollment is concentrated by source countries, types of institutions and level of education.
