Binghamton University international graduate student applications up sharply, buck national trends
Binghamton University’s Graduate School has seen a healthy rise in applications for international students over the past year, in sharp contrast to slow growth nationally, according to the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS).
Results of the 2014 CGS survey, which collects data on all international graduate applications, show Binghamton as a national leader in international application growth – nearly 20 percent above the national average.
“Binghamton University is clearly gaining international visibility because of the quality of its programs and the commitment of our deans, faculty and staff to bringing us the best students from around the world,” noted Provost Donald Nieman.
International graduate student applications to Binghamton grew by 26 percent over the prior year, compared to only 7 percent growth nationally.
