The world suddenly seems smaller and tightly interconnected and our students will be expected to function as professionals in the new global economy. A study abroad experience transforms our students in every way: intellectually, personally, and professionally. Academic studies pursued in another country provide a special kind of intellectual challenge. Leaving home and venturing forth to another country empower a young person and trigger a spurt of personal growth and self confidence. A study abroad experience can also greatly strengthen the resume, for employers interpret the study abroad experience as a sure sign that a person takes on challenges and can function in a wide range of situations.
