A Growing International Flavor on Campus Graduate schools, especially business schools, are becoming increasingly international. Foreign students, particularly those from China, flock here to earn their master's degrees. It's a good sign that U.S. oolleges are still a magnet for those who want a good education, but are American grad students being crowded out? Educators and students from local colleges join our discussion, Tuesday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.


Economy, Regional Economy/Business - Analysis and Trends, Education, Government/Politics, Immigration


David Fleshler, Provost for International Affairs at Case Western Reserve University
Ravi Krovi, Dean of the College of Business Administration, University of Akron
Peggy Blumenthal, senior counselor at the Institute of International Education
Ying Chen, President of the CWRU Chinese Student and Scholars Association
