|Demographic Data-Driven Strategies
A solid grasp of global demographics is key to a robust international student recruitment strategy. According to recent research by the British Council, India, China, the U.S. and Indonesia will account for more than half of the world's population aged 18 to 22, by the year 2020. An additional 25 percent will originate in Brazil, Mexico, Vietnam, Egypt, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and the Philippines.
Indonesia caught our attention a few weeks ago, as GlobalByDesign.com cited Bahasa Indonesia as one the world's fastest-growing online languages. USjournal can help you reach niche language markets with growing populations, as we feature well-established independent domains that promote U.S. education:
