Go Abroad

Picture Yourself Overseas—Gaining a Competitive Edge

In today’s global economy, MIT graduates are most successful when they work comfortably in cross-cultural settings and are able to understand and adapt to differing values, assumptions, attitudes, and work styles. Study Abroad is an exciting and engaging wayto gain these new perspectives and to learn from other political, economic, and social systems.

Studying abroad provides a valuable opportunity to develop personally, academically, and professionally. Upon their return, MIT students have noted these:

  • Increased confidence
  • Ability to adapt to new environments
  • New academic perspectives  
  • Ability to balance academic and non-academic interests
  • Improved self-awareness
  • Broadened appreciation for other cultures and viewpoints
  • Greater tolerance for ambiguity
  • Improved second-language skills
