US stock falls

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

A sur­vey of 965 grad­u­ate man­age­ment pro­grammes world­wide found that just 32 per cent of pro­grammes in the US recorded a rise in the vol­ume of in­ter­na­tional ap­pli­ca­tions this year, com­pared with 49 per cent in 2016. One re­spon­dent to the Grad­u­ate Man­age­ment Ad­mis­sion Coun­cil said: “Given the im­mi­gra­tion poli­cies ad­vo­cated by the present [Trump] ad­min­is­tra­tion as well as the gen­eral tenor of the broader con­ver­sa­tion in the US re­gard­ing im­mi­grants and for­eign­ers, we found that our prospec­tive in­ter­na­tional stu­dents cited greater anx­i­ety about liv­ing and study­ing in the US than in prior years.”
