    Click here to learn about Let the Buyer Beware: Selecting a Quality Overseas Partner or Degree Program, by IIE Director Dr. Mark Ashwill
    Information for parents and students, the “buyers” of degree programs offered by foreign and, in particular, U.S. institutions. Information for the direct consumers, beneficiaries and, sometimes, victims of education and training – students, parents and society-at-large.

    The information provided will focus on U.S. institutions, accredited and not, that use a pattern of deception combined with slick marketing to sell their product, and whose emphasis seems to be on money over quality. In a sense, these institutions are preying on “uneducated consumers” (students and parents) who yearn for the quality and prestige of a U.S. education and degree at an affordable price. They are also able to find willing Vietnamese institutional partners who are attracted by the prospect of much-needed additional income, the intangible benefit of prestige and the need to compete with peer institutions that are establishing comparable programs.
