The speakers will foreground insights from their analysis of particular country cases while focusing on the following facets and dimensions:

  • Fundamental strategies and practices to deliver on strategic national goals of education export (financial benefit, soft power, talent attraction, university development)
  • Development and diversification of marketing strategies, recruitment policies and mechanisms in the highly competitive global education market
  • Overcoming barriers for education export
  • Providing opportunities for different actors (industry, regional government, faculty, managerial staff, students)
  • Developing comprehensive internationalization on campus
  • Pathways to job market for international students
  • Harnessing the potential of digital tools and data analytics in education export: lessons from successful cases.

In addition, the discussion will highlight the global trends in education export and recent changes in the field. The event is held in association with the Conference “Internationalization of Russian Higher Education: Aims, Stakeholders, Results” by RANEPA.
