NES International Education
Education is expected to become a $7 trillion industry by 2025, and a significant element of this industry is travel exports for education purposes, which includes all expenditures by international students who come to the United States for their studies.
Beyond the economic and academic benefits international students, researchers, scholars, and educators contributes to U.S. communities, many international students gain practical post-graduation experience and training that they can bring to the U.S. workforce. This includes in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, which bolsters the competitiveness of U.S. industry and innovation.
The NES’ International Education chapter highlights novel approaches being taken to harness these benefits and promote the United States as a leading study destination. The chapter dives into several key areas, including:
- Connecting U.S. institutions and consortia with foreign groups interested in U.S. education
- Promoting the United States as a premier study destination
- Highlighting the importance of international education as a U.S. export
- Identifying and promoting global opportunities to the U.S. education industry
- Leveling the playing field in export markets.
