OISS releases fall 2011 statistics

Posted By: OISS    Published: Monday, 07 Nov 2011

The Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) has released the fall 2011 statistics for the international student population at MSU.

The statistics show that there are 5,898 international students at MSU as of fall 2011, which is an increase of 10.2% over the total from a year ago. Undergraduates continue to top graduate students: 3,341 compared to 2,166 graduate students. The trend of rising numbers of undergraduates from China is at the heart of these figures.

The Colleges of Business (1,807), Engineering (859), Natural Science (711), Social Science (589), and Agriculture and Natural Resources (535) currently enroll the largest numbers of international students at MSU.

Visiting Scholars

OISS supports MSU academic departments who host international researchers, teachers and faculty with a variety of services. In addition to the record number of students, there were 1,104 visiting international scholars at MSU in the past year.

Economic Impact

According to the Institute of International Education’s estimated economic impact formula, MSU’s international community contributes an estimated $175 million to the local economy.
