RESEARCH NOTE THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF GERMAN GRADUATE STUDENTS IN BALI
Abstract:This note addresses an understudied market segment: students who travel on relatively long stays for educational purposes. German students, attending a graduate program of study on the island of Bali, were surveyed to determine their expenditures. Prepaid and lump sum expenditures were combined with monthly spending estimates to arrive at estimates of total spending. The economic impact of this student market is then discussed with consideration of the multiplier effect and ``leakages'' from the island economy.
