International Marketing

In my international marketing class, I had to research and analyze a country. The country I chose is South Korea and I put together a well made blog to showcase the country that is South Korea. 10 more words

Of Smoke, Mirrors, & Educational Consultants

At the risk of being repetitive, I am once again reblogging Dr. Mark Ashwill's recent post on his blog "An International Educator in Vietnam." In his post, he discusses the shady practices of fair organizers in various markets. He specifically mentions the practice of busing in large numbers of students to make a fair look successful. This struck a cord for me because, as an experienced recruiter, I really hate this practice! While some schools will take the time to select students who have an interest and who are on track for pursuing their studies in the USA, unfortunately, they are very few. The vast majority of times that we see these students en masse in a fair, it is because they just wanted to get out of class for a few hours for this "field trip." It is such a waste of time and resources--and it's a waste of my voice, as well, as I become hoarse from talking so much with people that are not really interested in my program. Fair organizers, take note and PLEASE stop this practice!

This is an interesting blog post by Dr. Mark Ashwill on his blog "An International Educator in Vietnam." The reality of violence--particularly gun violence--in the USA and how quickly and widespread that this news is disseminated in media outlets around the world is definitely a factor that we face as we recruit international students. For my part, it is embarrassing to be at an international recruitment event when I have to face a potential student or their parents ask me about safety, about the issues of mass shootings on college campuses, etc. What do you say to someone who is afraid to send their child to the USA, even to a community as safe as mine? Even more embarrassing and concerning to me are the anti-Muslim rhetoric and racist sentiments that are pervasive among our local and federal leadership, as well as other public figures. Their comments certainly make my already-challenging job much more difficult! The current global economic and political climate are already presenting major challenges for international recruitment. Between lower oil prices that are decreasing revenue in Middle Eastern nations--several of which provide government-backed scholarships, economic turmoil in markets like China and Brazil, the high cost of education in the USA, etc., international recruitment is certainly challenging enough. But when you add xenophobic rhetoric from public figures to the mix--as well as a basic standstill in DC when it comes to dealing with these problems--we basically have our own leadership working against us.

Besides the social and cultural contributions that these students make in our classes and activities, we also should remember that these students make a major impact on our economy (see the NAFSA International Economic Value Tool).

Thank you to Dr. Ashwill for posting such interesting food for thought.

4 Ways to Use Music in International Communications

The other day I was driving along the motorway when a van overtook me bearing the slogan ‘Music is the International Language of Choice’.  Obviously this was a music instrument supplier or similar but it set me thinking about how music plays (pardon the pun) a key role in communication.   736 more words
