British Columbia: Ahead or behind the global competition curve?

At USD 170 billion and 5 plus million students, International Education has become a veritable modern Völkerwanderung. British Columbia has carved out a disproportionate niche in this landscape on the strength of its educational quality offering, its geographic location, and as part of a larger Canada brand and immigration narrative. This success has not taken place in a vacuum – other countries and regions have started or redoubled recruiting efforts which puts competitive pressure on BC institutions. At the same time, BC’s value proposition has changed – especially since Vancouver is now one of the highest cost cities in the world.

This session offers data, analysis, and insights from key sending and receiving countries, and highlights the impact of three trends – volatility, competitiveness, and analytics – on BC.

The content of this session is applicable to PSE.
