Why Study Abroad?

A better question is: Why would you not?  Our returning students continually reaffirm the importance and validity of study abroad as a life-changing experience that fosters both a student’s personal and academic growth.


  • Challenge yourself in a new environment.
  • Meet new and exciting people from different backgrounds and cultures.
  • Develop life-long friendships.


  • Take advantage of a hands-on experience and learn both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Gain fluency in a foreign language.
  • Learn about life from a different perspective.
  • Earn college credits and satisfy major, minor or distribution requirements.


  • Build your resume as well as your knowledge of other cultures and international policy.
  • Cultivate a global perspective of business.
  • Learn how to comfortably communicate and socialize with people from other parts of the world.
