RESEARCH STUDIES
A 2008 study conducted by Stevan Trooboff, Michael Vande
Berg, and Jack Rayman entitled “Employer Attitudes toward
Study Abroad” showed evidence that
“First, employers believe that the longer the program, the more
value it has; and second, they place relatively high value on
experiential learning.”
Specifically…
The most valued type of education abroad experience for
both senior managers and the HR professionals and others
responsible for hiring was a semester internship.
