Abstract

By analyzing the 64 countries that represent the largest number of international student exchanges, this article describes international student flows from a macro perspective. The findings indicate that the international student exchange network remained relatively stable. The United States and most Western industrialized countries maintained their position at the center of the network, while East European and Asian countries have become more central and the African and Middle East countries have stayed peripheral. The results suggest an academic hegemony consistent with world economic and political performance. Allied with World System Theory, the higher a country's position in the world system, the more central it is in the international student exchange network.
