What do students need to know in order to survive in this globalized world? What skills will they need to possess in this new era? Now, more than ever, our world is interconnected. To be a successful person intellectually and professionally, you must become a “global citizen”. You will need to have the skills to interact with people from multiple cultures and have the capability to analyze issues on a global level. Hence, getting an international education is essential for you to excel in your professional career as well as building your global network.
With proper planning and preparation, the study abroad experience can truly be a life changing one. Study abroad is widely recognized for the value it adds to an individual. When you study abroad your education grows exponentially faster than if you stay home. You live and learn in your host culture, every interaction is an opportunity to learn, and to share your culture with others. Your experience will translate into tangible benefits throughout your life. Study abroad also enhances your career opportunities as employers are interested in seeing international education experience on resumes and discussing this experience during interviews.
