Canada grows popularity for business students


Canada increased its popularity as study destinations for international business students according to a new study, while the US has bounced back from a decline in popularity in previous years. Carried out amongst 1,442 respondents from 50 countries between May and June 2020, the latest edition of the Business of Branding study by CarringtonCrisp and EFMD reveals Canada is now one of the top five international study destinations, along with Singapore, the US (68 percent), the UK (67 percent) and Australia (40 percent). Asked in the latest study where they would consider studying internationally, Canada is on the rise, up from 38 percent to 48 percent of students thinking about the country this year compared with last year. One of the reasons for the increase is a set of immigration programs aimed specifically at international graduate entrepreneurs.
