Importance of Studying Abroad

Printable Page
The business world is much different today than even a generation ago. The Internet allows for worldwide interaction between people who never would have communicated previously. This opens up a world of possibilities for businesses but also presents challenges such as interacting in different languages and with people of different cultures. Learning about these differences first-hand is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences a student can have. As the global economy grows, so does the need for employees who are competent in the international arena. Unfortunately, less than one percent of American students study abroad. Those who choose an international experience over the comforts of home are rewarded with tremendous professional opportunities.

Additionally, an international experience is life-changing. Students learn about themselves and the world, while absorbing the nuances of different cultures. Some students have a desire to live abroad while others realize the value, but prefer to stay home. There is no right or wrong answer to personal exploration and development. Everyone is different and it is through life experiences that people learn who they really are and challenge themselves to improve.
