Low loonie, possible Trump presidency has US students looking to Canada

March 28, 2016

The low Canadian dollar and the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency has prompted many US students to look north, writes Shannon Moneo for the Globe and Mail. The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, for example, has seen its American undergraduate cohort jump from 15% to nearly 25% in the past year. That said, Chief Marketing Manager Ron Duerksen still thinks Canadian business schools could be doing better to attract US students. “We have some of the very best international schools in the world, and Canada is a fantastic place to be a student,” he says. “I think we could leverage their passion more.” Globe and Mail
