As more U.S. institutions turn their attention on the Southern Cone region, it is vital that your recruitment efforts keep pace. Especially in the fast-growing markets of Argentina and Chile.

With the success of government initiatives such as the United States’ “100,000 Strong in the Americas” and the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program, expanding your recruitment efforts in the Southern Cone region are more important than ever.

This webinar provides a foundational overview of the educational systems in both Argentina and Chile and recruitment strategies for U.S. institutions. Presenters include a regional expert and a campus-based international recruiter who share best practices for successfully recruiting and retaining students from the region.


Participants will be able to:

  • Gain a foundational understanding of Southern Cone educational systems, using Argentina and Chile as examples;
  • Identify successful strategies for recruiting and retaining students from the Southern Cone;
  • Build lasting institutional relationships in order to establish a recruitment pipeline in the region.

This webinar will appeal to those at institutions already actively recruiting students from the Southern Cone as well as those looking to begin or expand their current recruitment efforts. The content will be relevant to those working in international student recruitment, advising, marketing, and admissions.
