International students: Where are they now?

International students: Where are they now?

International Education International students

“There are 1.13 million foreign students in the US … a 14% increase over last year [and] nearly 50% more than in 2010 and 85% more than in 2005.” International Students Stream Into U.S. Colleges, Wall Street Journal

If you work in higher education these numbers are no surprise. There is plenty of discussion on international student mobility in the US, much of it centering on international student origins and destinations. Despite the increase in foreign students in US higher education year over year, little information exists on international student outcomes, particularly with regards to employment.

I’m researching the career paths of international students who remain in the US after graduation. Know talented foreign professionals who graduated from a US degree program and stayed in the US for work? Share this short introductory survey with your network so I can connect with them for a Skype discussion.
