Under the background of economic globalization, the global trade of education service has seen a rapid development especially in some western developed countries which regard the education industry as an important service industry with great support and have gained substantial economic and social benefits. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties 36 years ago, Sino-US relations have made historic progress. Since China's entry into the WTO, the trade volume of import and export has increased significantly between America and China, with one becoming a major trade partner of the other. In this thesis, a data analysis of the import and export volume in Sino-US higher education service trade has been made. And then by the use of the international competitiveness index, this thesis arrives at the conclusion that China, with its scale advantage, still has a weaker comprehensive competitiveness than America in the higher education service trade. In the end, the thesis puts forward strategies to improve China's international competitiveness in the development of higher education service trade .
