Students from around the globe aspired to study in the U.S. as the pinnacle of higher education excellence. But now it seems they are losing their luster, as the world is falling out of love with American universities. Research from the U.K. Higher Education International Unit reveals a sharp slump in the U.S.&rsquo;s share of international students over the last decade.</p></em><br /><br /><p>According to the report, a primary reason for this trend is that universities abroad are improving. But it's hard not to wonder if there's more than just irony at play here, considering the huge bets many American universities have placed over the last few years on foreign "satellite" campuses and other initiatives aimed at attracting international students.</p><p>For more on the current state of affairs in academia, take a look at these related articles:</p><ul><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/149934246/the-hedge-fundification-of-american-universities" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The hedge fundification of American universities</a></li><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/148349624/is-architecture-shifting-from-a-profession-to-a-lifestyle-choice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Is architecture shifting from a profession to a lifestyle choice?</a></li><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/143360600/teaching-to-the-city-archinect-sessions-one-to-one-6-with-will-hunter-founder-of-the-brand-new-london-school-of-architecture" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Teaching to the City: Archinect Sessions One-to-One #6 with Will Hunter, founder of the brand new London School of Architecture</a></li><li><a href="http://archinect.com/features/article/139110718/screen-print-37-s-m-l-xl-from-the-journal-of-architectural-education" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Screen/Print #37: "S,M,L,XL" from the Journal of Architectural Education</a></li></ul> http://archinect.com/news/article/149934246/the-hedge-fundification-of-american-universities The hedge fundification of American universities Nicholas Korody 2016-03-11T14:27:00-05:00 >2016-03-17T01:59:55-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/11/1108fkflpo495eo6.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Have you heard the latest wisecrack about Harvard?
