India sends most students to the US
Richard Florida (author of The Creative Class) quotes the The Institute of International Education's Open Doors 2006 report [Download opendoors2006_fastfacts.pdf ]. Richard is a new convert to blogging and joins leading US authors like Gladwell, John Hagel and Seth Godin who are also blogging. His book Creative Class explores creativity and its link to economic growth. It is a must read for city level economic growth that people should read.
India is the leading place of origin for international students with 76,503 students in the U.S. in 2005/06 (a decrease of 5% from the previous year), followed by #2 China (62,582, up less than 1%)
What is interesting for me to note is that Indian numbers have decreased and I think it's not only because higher education institutes in India are but also because of the marketing efforts of educational institutes from places like Singapore, Australia and perennial favorite UK that is catching up.
