There’s no shortage of reasons to go abroad, but in the interest of time (and space), here are some of the highlights:
Gain global competency and other new skills and perspectives
Tackle a familiar academic or research topic in a vastly different environment
Distinguish yourself as a job applicant or grad school candidate
Lead diverse teams, successfully adapt to new environments, and understand and navigate cultural differences
Expand your network
Forge a truly global network of peers, faculty, and employer contacts
