Why recruit in Peru?
The Peruvian economy has experienced a boom in recent years and as a result, there has been increasing interest in Peru as a student recruitment market. Education institutions have increased their engagement in Peru’s capital city Lima since the government launched the “Pronabec Becas de la República” program – a government initiative to increase funding for postgraduate courses.
The government in Peru has, over the last few years, made a whole range of scholarship programs available, some of which have had a very positive effect on student mobility. With Peru developing well economically and becoming more outward looking in its quest to develop human capital, it is an exciting time to be recruiting in Peru. Mark your calendars and be sure to join us in both spring and autumn to solidify your brand presence in this emerging market.
