Record Number of International Students

This past week the Institute of International Education (IIE)released their important "Open Doors 2010" report. The 2010 report revealed that a record high number of 690,923 international students studied in the United States during the 2009/2010 academic year, a 3 per cent increase over the previous year.

We at Global Current have also seen a steady increase in the number of international exchange visitors on J-1 visa trainee and intern programs. The biggest growth we have seen is from emerging economies such as China and India.

Both of these figures reflect a continued global recognition that both the U.S. educational system and business community remain amongst the best in the world.
