Abstract:
International students pursuing undergraduate business related majors in English-taught degree programs are rising rapidly. There is an opportunity for undergraduate business programs to recruit the top talent from all over the world. To attract these top international students, undergraduate business programs must prove that they can retain their current international student population and provide adequate support for these students throughout their time in college. The Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona is a nationally ranked business program and has a very reputable reputation across the globe. Eller has a strong academic curriculum and professional development center. However, Eller lacks the necessary resources for international undergraduate students to be successful before and after gaining admission into the college. Outlined in this report is an in-depth analysis of other similarly ranked business schools' international student resource offerings in comparison to Eller's offerings. Additionally, the best resource offerings for undergraduate international students have been identified and adapted for the Eller undergraduate program. The report concludes with a list of recommendations for Eller to consider implementing to improve their overall international student offerings. International students will thrive socially and academically in Eller with the proper resources provided to them.
