Start planning your study abroad adventure today! Out of the 8,500 business students, how are you going to differentiate yourself? How are you going to give yourself an edge in an ever increasing competitive job market? Whether you plan to work for a large international firm or for a bank in your hometown, a semester abroad will help prepare you for your career in our global economy.
”Studying abroad will not only demonstrate to potential employers your willingness to get out of your comfort zone and embrace new experiences, it will teach you more about yourself and the place you call home than you can imagine. Seeing how other people live, work, and solve familiar problems in unfamiliar ways will give you greater perspective about human behavior and greater vision to devise solutions to get people where you want them to be. Employers love that skill set… It’s what they call leadership potential.”
“Apart from developing a broader perspective, I gained global career skills such as problem-solving, adaptability, networking and international experience. As a study abroad student, you are adapting to your new surroundings every day as well as developing your intercultural competencies.”
