    Can Traveling Internationally Help You Launch a Successful Company?

    Can Traveling Internationally Help You Launch a Successful Company?

    What advantages do students have who travel abroad for the purpose of bringing back new ideas that helped them launch a successful company?

    I am a huge advocate of study abroad programs because they allow students to expand their creativity and perspective. I also believe that international travel will stimulate new ideas, innovation, and the creation of new companies in the U.S. Ultimately, studying abroad would help create more companies and lead to more jobs in the United States.

    I remember on my trip to Italy seeing the famous art in the museums first hand that you only read about and see in books. I began to think how I can strive to create something prolific in my life and career that could have a lasting effect on others.

    The efforts to facilitate study abroad programs will be a huge asset to students for their life and future professional careers.
