GMAC Research Webinar
International Student Mobility: The Latest Data and Analysis

Recorded on May 24, 2017

GMAC researchers hosted a webinar to share an update on the status of international candidate demand in light of the current political climate.

Data and analysis were pooled from a variety of sources to give registrants an up-to-date snapshot of international candidate perceptions, decision-making factors, and application sending behavior. The trends discussed provided schools with a useful benchmark to assess their own numbers at this point in the admissions cycle.

Following the 30-minute presentation, webinar attendees continued the dialogue in a Q&A session with the presenters.
