Why do you think Bentley students should pursue an international education experience?
I think it is really important for students to understand how different cultures work. Understanding this is not only helpful for personal development but also for professional development. When you study abroad, you immerse yourself in a different culture and this allows you to become a more open-minded person when it comes to the acceptance of different customs. Additionally, you make friends and connections from all over the world, which ultimately will help you amplify your network.

Why do you think Bentley students should pursue an international education experience? 
Moving out of your parent’s house and going off to college is one thing, but living in a foreign country for over three months is an experience very few students can look back on. The study abroad experience is nothing like a week vacation in a different country, instead you become fully immersed in the unique culture and learn what it’s like to live in a foreign country. By pursuing an international education experience, Bentley students will return home with a new outlook on culture, language skills, a unique education system, and a desire to form deeper connections with different people, all of which are attractive to future employers and can serve as potential career opportunities.

What is your #1 advice for a Bentley student thinking about studying abroad?
My best advice for a Bentley student thinking about studying abroad is to make your decision about whether you go and where you go for yourself and not based on anybody else. It is very easy to be influenced by your friends when choosing where to go, but ultimately you will have the best experience by making the decision that you want and not following others. It may be scary, especially if you’re going somewhere with nobody you know, but there will undoubtedly be people in the exact same position as you, and it will only make you more perceptive to making new friendships.
