Obama Win and the Implication on International Student Applications to the United States

I just read a very interesting article on the Guardian (United Kingdom) website on the impact that Barack Obama’s election could have on the international student recruitment efforts in the United States and among our leading competitors. Barack Obama’s win was celebrated around the world (particularly right here in Obama’s neighborhood of Hyde Park, Chicago) and was unlike anything I have ever witnessed before. The Guardian article provides an interesting perspective that “4/11 could be just as significant as 9/11 in terms of its impact on international student recruitment.” Time will tell how Obama’s election will affect international student mobility across the globe.
