430 Billion: The Global Tug of War for International Students

The World Bank Principal Education Specialist, IFC Alejandro Caballero, FutureLearn Executive Chairman Joseph Johnson, World Financial Services CEO & Executive Director Esther Benjamin, and Tyton Partners Managing Director Nick Kind discuss the global tug of war for international students at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of students traveling between countries to get higher education degrees took a major hit. Numbers have recovered in some places but not in others; the geopolitical context has become a lot more complex; and many governments see such students as increasingly essential to their economies. In this panel, we will talk to a diverse range of experts about where this vital sector of education is likely to go, and what it means for students, universities and the companies that serve them.
