Canada Needs to Send More Students Abroad, Report Says


Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


An article by Simona Chiose in The Globe and Mail looks at Canada’s outbound student mobility in the context of other national initiatives to increase those numbers, including Generation Study Abroad to double outbound numbers in the United States and Germany’s target of 50 percent from its current 30 percent. A new report argues that Canada’s 3 percent needs to increase fivefold to successfully navigate global markets. To reach 15 percent, "the country will have to change a culture that values international education experience among its business students, but undervalues it in most other disciplines," writes Chiose.
