Decision Making for Chinese Students to Receive Their Higher Education in the U.S.
International Journal of Higher Education, v5 n1 p28-37 2016
This study examines Chinese students' decision making considerations for coming to the U.S. for their higher education. Due to the large number of Chinese students in the U.S, it is an interesting topic for educators and researchers to explore the decision making considerations Chinese students choose for studying abroad. International student enrollment plays an important role in the higher education in the U.S. and a much needed sources of financial revenue. The results indicate that Chinese students want to develop a global view and depart from the traditional Chinese system of college education. The Chinese students participated in this study want to learn more innovations and skills that prepare them for a better future. Both administrators and educators in higher education need to learn these aspects of this tiny market segment, not only for serving this small group, but also expand the cultural diversity into the whole higher education.
