Education and Training Services Resource Guide - 2021

According to the latest data released by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis, education service exports ranked 6th among service exports in 2020.  During the 2019/2020 academic year the U.S. hosted over one million students and reported $38.961 billion in education exports, which supported over 415,990 U.S. jobs. U.S. colleges and universities play an important role in helping foreign governments partner with private industry to fulfill vital education and training needs. Pre-pandemic, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report estimates that 8 million students will be studying abroad by 2025.  

Education services are an important element of our trade relationships with countries worldwide. Promoting study in the United States strengthens our economic development through innovation, workforce development, and attracting foreign direct investment. There are enormous challenges and opportunities for U.S. international education around the world. In 2019, the Commercial Service launched USA: A Study Destination to assist the U.S. international education industry to compete. Increasing trade and investment opportunities for U.S. educational institutions and entities is, therefore, a priority at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration.
