Invitation: International Student Mobility and Opportunities for Growth in the Global Marketplace (Book Project)
Book Project: International Student Mobility and Opportunities for Growth in the Global Marketplace


Today, over four million students cross geographic, cultural, and educational boarders for their higher education. Trends of international student mobility are significant to universities, educators, business leaders, and government to increase revenue and campus diversity in the global marketplace. Educators and policymakers value international students as a potential resource toward campus internationalization in recent decades because of the rapid flows of ideas, technology, languages, information and monetary benefit that they bring with them. Creating an understanding of the student mobility issues globally through thorough research based inquiry, use of services and the how higher education policy affects the international student population is critical to effective inclusion of this growing population into university settings.

This book will examine recent trends in global student mobility in Australia, Asia, North America, Latin America, Middle East, and Europe where the emerging trends and practices are prominent. The target audience of this book includes professionals and researchers working as faculty and scholars working with international student populations.
