UPDATE: The NAFSA 2020 annual conference was canceled, for obvious reasons.
Capstone Vietnam is pleased to announce that Dr. Mark Ashwill, managing director and co-founder, will speak at an unofficial, pre-conference Viet Nam student recruitment seminar to be held on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 in St. Louis, MO. (NOTE: This assumes, of course, that the conference is not postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay tuned!)
The Viet Nam Recruitment Seminar consists of a comprehensive overview of current market conditions, recruitment tools and techniques, and different types of recruitment strategies, plus plenty of time for Q&A. These are challenging times for international student recruitment, including in Viet Nam, with a rapidly changing market and more competition than ever. While more Vietnamese students are opting to study overseas, a perfect storm has been brewing for some host countries, combined with a growing list of positives and pull factors for others.
There are at least 250,000 young Vietnamese studying overseas in 50 or so countries and territories. Here are the top five (5) host countries, which host to 75% of them (187,401). All sources are official.
1. Japan (72,354, 2018);
2. South Korea (37,426, 2019)
3. USA (29,976, 1-20)
4. Australia (26,050, 12-19) ; and
5. Canada (21,595, 12-19)
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Dr. Ashwill, who has lived in Viet Nam since 2005, talk about recruitment in this strategically important country. The seminar will take place from 9-11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26th in St. Louis. It is open to any education colleague, secondary or postsecondary, who recruits in Viet Nam. (US higher education colleagues must represent regionally accredited institutions.)
There will be plenty of time for Q&A during and after the informal discussion. This special event promises to be a productive and enjoyable way to kick off NAFSA 2020!
The seminar is free of charge and refreshments will be served. Online registration is required. The exact location will be sent to all confirmed participants.
A heartfelt thanks to Study in the USA for its sponsorship!
