Dedicated in-person recruitment opportunities for American institutions.

USA: The world's leading study destination

BMI has worked with American institutions for over 35 years. The international student recruitment landscape has changed dramatically during this time, however, one trend remains: the USA is still the top destination for international students.

As the global education industry becomes more crowded and with the cancellation of many US country events in 2022, BMI is rising to the challenge to help US-based providers recapture market share from competing destinations. The BMI Study in the USA marketing initiative will provide extra support to enable American institutions to raise their profile. At all of our student recruitment events around the world, BMI is:

  • Creating a dedicated US-focused pavilion for students to meet American institutions.
  • Increasing our US-related marketing budget to attract students focused on the States.
  • Embedding more US-focused seminar content and information sessions into events.

Our schedule of events below offers a concise overview of opportunities awaiting you in the key recruitment markets of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and throughout the Gulf region.

In-person and/or virtual… the choice is yours!

US Recruitment Success Story

“We always like to share our success stories from events we have attended. We are still accepting applications for our Fall 2022 intake, and it usually takes us about 1-2 cycles before we see enrollment from our events, but I do have some great news to share!

So far we have received 1 application from the Medellin event, and we are about to admit a student from the Mexico City event in Fall 2021.

This is very exciting news! We are still following up with our contacts and look forward to seeing more students from our BMI events enrol in the future.”
