Why Go Abroad?

Students with study abroad experience gain intercultural and interpersonal communication skills that improve employment opportunities. Additionally, many employers consider second language competency an asset.

Graduates with study abroad experience/mobility or second language comprehension, social skills and intercultural competencies are considered strong applicants for positions in governments and companies that involve global business or international staff. Students become more aware, globally responsible citizens and better community members.
