GMAC Research Webinar
International Student Mobility: The Latest Data and Analysis
Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 12 pm EDT
GMAC researchers will host a webinar on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, to share an update on the status of international candidate demand in light of the current political climate.
Data and analysis will be pooled from a variety of sources to give you an up-to-date snapshot of international candidate perceptions, decision-making factors, and application sending behavior. The trends discussed will provide schools with a useful benchmark to assess their own numbers at this point in the admissions cycle.
Following the 30-minute presentation, webinar attendees will have the opportunity to continue the dialogue in a Q&A session with the presenters. A link to the webinar recording and slides will be emailed to all registrants following the live presentation.
