Impacts of a Global Experiential Education on Employability

Abstract

Institutions have long been proponents of international experiential education for all sorts of reasons including personal growth, confidence, and exposure. Employers are increasingly seeking the global competencies that come with an international experiential education. However, do these experiences affect career choice and career success? What does the evidence tell us, and what are effective institutional strategies?  Come hear how institutions in Singapore are taking advantage of this correlation and helping their students find career success not only in the current job market but also in the future. This panel will cover not only foundational practices, but also some of the newest innovations.  In addition, IIE will share its latest research revealing the role a global education plays in developing competencies for the 21st century job market.
