DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Instructional design pioneer, iDesign, in partnership with American International Recruitment Council (AIRC), today announced the launch of an online certificate in international admissions and enrollment planning. Designed in collaboration with national experts, the Professional Certificate in International Student Recruitment and Enrollment Planning course emphasizes deep understanding of professional guidelines, key concepts, and tools to improve international admissions strategies.
"Today's international recruiters are not only navigating an increasingly complex foreign policy and international educational landscape, they also must employ a range of skills, from marketing to budgeting to regulatory analysis," said Paxton Riter, chief executive officer of iDesign. "The new AIRC course combines the international recruitment expertise of AIRC with the latest instructional technology and digital pedagogy to reinforce these skills and give international admissions professionals an edge."
"Our members and stakeholders look to AIRC to refresh their knowledge of the institutional and regulatory landscape, enhance their professional networks, and hone their skills," said Mike Finnell, executive director of AIRC. "At the same time, they are busy professionals whose time is largely devoted to achieving recruiting targets. The blended format of our Professional Certificate in International Student Recruitment and Enrollment Planning gives recruiting professionals unprecedented access to AIRC's expertise and resources."
Students in the program complete seven modules, comprised of blended in-person and online learning. Participants must also submit a capstone project culminating in the creation of a strategic international recruitment plan. Each participant will receive instruction, support and personalized feedback from expert practitioners in the field. Upon completion, participants will earn a certificate and digital badge.
The cost of the course is $1,050, and AIRC members are eligible for a 20 percent discount. To learn more or to enroll, please visit https://course.market/courses/airc.
