Study Abroad Benefits

Set Yourself Apart

Despite a recent increase, fewer than 10 percent of all U.S. college students study abroad at some point during their undergraduate years. But with this small percentage comes the unique opportunity to stand out among a stack of resumes and not only land a job, but thrive in that job after graduation.

We believe that more and more employers are realizing the extraordinary benefits of study abroad, and are seeking out graduates who have had study abroad experiences. Key jobs skills such as adaptability, global understanding and tolerance, leadership, and independence are directly fostered by learning and living abroad.
— Dr. Mary M. Dwyer, President and CEO of IES Abroad

Gain Global Perspective

Globalization is here to stay so it is more important than ever before to be able to understand and embrace the differences of others. Traveling and living abroad yields cultural competence and playing your sport helps to amplify it.

Diversify your Student-Athlete Experience

As a student-athlete you might agree that your sport can start to resemble a “job” while in college. But when you are able to compete and train abroad and assist in the growth of your sport in different countries and among other cultures, you are able to re-discover why you play. This is the essence of the ‘GP effect’.

Develop Leadership and Communication Skills

Once you fly out of your comfort zone and into a foreign country, the rules change. Consequently, you are forced to develop a new set of skills that help you adapt and engage in your new environment. These skills are the ones that distinguish you on and off the field and well after your study abroad program ends.

Experience Personal Growth

In the process of learning about other countries and cultures you can not avoid the inevitable search for yourself. You must be humble, empathetic, sincere, communicative, and tolerant. When developed, these characteristics will yield powerful future leaders. That is what we are building at Global Players.
