While traditional models of student mobility continue to be successful, there are new styles of programs designed to maintain and boost your outbound numbers and provide solutions to the changing environment in international education.

The session will outline existing programs and strategic benefits to member institutions, as well as ways in which both organizations are adapting to the evolving needs of those institutions and their students.
