Rogers, Kenneth A.
This report resulted from a conference convened to discuss the special needs of Latin American students in the US and the relationship between academic courses offered and educational needs and career opportunities at home. The conference focused on business administration and engineering, fields attracting the largest number of Latin American students. Separate reports on the 2 fields were published. Part I of this report covers the prospective student's goals, preadmission guidance, selection and admission, predeparture and post-arrival orientation; Part II deals with his personal academic and work experiences in the US; Part III briefly discusses the placement of returning graduates and the possible usefulness of alumni and professional associations.
