Emerging Economies Are Exporting Education

Huffington Post - Education

Universities in the United States have long been - and in many ways still are - the most attractive higher education option for students around the world. As recent research from the Brookings Institution demonstrates, the U.S. is a "global hub of higher education."
That is because the U.S. is capable of attracting a full 21 percent of all students studying abroad. According to Brookings, "an estimated 684,807 international students attended tertiary-level education programs in the United States in 2010, versus about 389,958 international students in the United Kingdom, the next-largest destination."
But this overwhelming preference for the U.S. may be eroding, as foreign students are increasingly finding other options for their study abroad experiences. This is happening for a number of reasons: firstly, because the educational institutions in emerging economies are getting better.
