The opportunity to study in an international setting is a valuable experience for many but what are the actual benefits that come with sharing your study experience with those from all over the world?
Find out below why choosing to study your bachelor’s degree Abroad is a great choice:
1. Your professional and personal development grows
Having an understanding of international management is essential in our increasingly globalized world. To thrive in a global management role requires key management skills such as leadership, quick thinking, creative problem-solving, strategic-thinking, excellent communication and people management, as well as the ability to be resilient and adaptable to change. However, all these skills, so paramount and sought after in today’s world, cannot be achieved by merely confronting theoretical knowledge. A bachelor’s abroad will help you grow as a person through understanding other cultures and different ways of approaching and adapting to them.
On a professional level, studying a Bachelor’s abroad will open up your outlook on the world surrounding you, while on a personal level, you will attain skills when it comes to working in teams, organizing yourself optimally, and gaining a broader understanding of society as a whole.
2. Your language skills
While many management degrees are taught exclusively in English, you’ll still have plenty of opportunities to better your language skills no matter which ESCP Business School campus you choose to study at – whether it’s Berlin, London, Paris, Turin or Madrid. And it won’t just be the local lingo you’ll be getting to grips with, as you can study entirely in English, and even take classes in French, German and Spanish. Being fully-immersed in the local culture and language is a great way to understand and interpret the world around you.
3. Having the chance to solve genuine commercial challenges
It’s no longer enough to be knowledgeable of management and the processes, strategies and theories that come with it. Being able to apply theory to practice through group projects, real-life case studies, business simulations and internships are becoming an integral part of management degree programs. Handing the baton over to management students to help genuine companies and businesses come up with innovative solutions also helps develop their own entrepreneurial spirits.
4. You’ll also learn how management works across cultures and borders
Seeing the world, experiencing a whole new culture and developing a global mind-set is a big draw for many students who choose to immerse themselves in a multicultural study environment. The opportunity to connect with new work settings and different approaches to business and intercultural management will make your experience abroad much more than a long path to obtaining a degree. It will also help you to see an opportunity in every challenge and build a vision of the future.
