International experience gives graduates an edge for top
“Global businesses are increasingly seeking graduates
who have a global awareness. They value those who have
the initiative to study overseas as part of their
learning. Such study helps them to be more culturally
aware, more able to work in multicultural teams and more
able to move around the world as part of their career.”
