McCoy College Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs
Develop Career-related Skills Through Study Abroad
Dr. Phil Gardner and Dr. Linda Gross, from Michigan State University’s Career Services, show you how to structure your study abroad experience to maximize skill development in the video Unpacking Your Study Abroad Experience.
Studies have shown that employers are demanding that graduates have advanced skills sets before hiring them. In many cases, these skills cannot be adequately developed in the traditional classroom setting. There is evidence, however, that a properly structured Study Abroad experience can be transformative on a personal level and also enable you to develop the advanced skills employers demand. To see how, watch the video (requires QuickTime).
