The study showed that the top five skills, with more than 70% of respondents saying their study abroad experience contributed to a significant degree of improvement, were intercultural skills, curiosity, flexibility/adaptability, confidence, and self-awareness. In addition, more than 50% noted significant gains in interpersonal and problem-solving skills. Even the employers agree that study abroad can have a positive effect on skills needed for today’s global workforce.
