Why is international experience so critical for business students?
"My study abroad experience has opened my mind to what else is out in the world besides what I am familiar with in the United States. Learning in a different academic system was challenging at first, but I feel like I can better adapt to new and unfamiliar things now than I could before."
In today’s business world, a global perspective is not only desirable to hav e f or college graduates, it is essential. Both local and national employers, not to mention those who do business internationally, seek candidates who understand and have experience in how business runs on a global scale. That’s why a study abroad experience for a business major is one of the best things you can do during your college years. No matter what your major is – accounting, business administration, management, marketing, finance, advertising or anything else you may be studying – there are numerous programs and countries with great international study programs waiting for you.
Now, more than any time in the past, employers are seeking candidates with a global viewpoint, international experience and understanding of other cultures and peoples.
