Gregg Schoenfeld, a director of research for GMAC said, “We have seen a shift away from the U.S. as quality education has been growing outside the U.S.” Andre Gemino of Beedie University said their university put student diversity at the top of the list, and the school is increasing recruitment in Latin America and the Middle East.
The University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management has a global recruitment strategy in place and has intensified efforts in Latin America. Rotman enrolled over 50 applicants from the region, an increase of 18 from four years ago. The university held an event with Bank of Nova Scotia in Lima (Peru) for prospective students.
The school invited prospective students from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to a session featuring MBA alumni born in Latin America. Leigh Gauthier, an assistant director of recruitment admissions for the school, said there are ambassadors for the Rotman school abroad.
There are times the university pays part or all of the cost to fly a candidate to Toronto to visit the campus. If you are applying to study abroad, contact Canadian Visa Professionals for help with the visa process. They can make sure all applications are filled out correctly and submitted promptly.
