    The outlook for international education in the USA - live from NAFSA

    The outlook for international education in the USA - live from NAFSA

    A new analysis from international research firm HolonIQ sets out growth scenarios for foreign enrolment in the United States over the next decade. Ranging from what amounts to "essentially flat" to "more than double," the growth trajectories are based on detailed modelling of global student flows, with adjustments for national policies regarding international students, capacity, competition, and the shifting geopolitical context.

    At the 2024 NAFSA conference in New Orleans we used the opportunity to interview three NAFSA delegates, three industry experts, about their views on these growth scenarios, on the factors that are involved and on their outlook for international education in the USA in general.

    Start-ups in international education: disrupters or innovators?

    In this ICEF Podcast we’re talking about startups and it is always fascinating to hear the stories of the people behind these new initiatives, the newcomers in the marketplace: what drives them, which ideas do they have, which problems are they solving, how can their product or service add value, and where do they find the time, the energy, the funds, the tenacity to keep going even when the going gets tough sometimes.

    We have invited three start-up founders: three entrepreneurs who made time in their busy agendas not only to tell us about their story and explain their format/concept, but also to share with us their ambitions and strategic objectives for the coming years.
