Inside Higher Ed has an interesting article today talking about the possible correlation between students studying abroad while in college and college completion.
Basically, there have been some studies that show that students who have studied abroad have higher 4 and 5 year graduation rates from college. One of the universities mentioned is the University of Minnesota. I have criticized the University of Minnesota in the past because of their poor 4 year graduation rate, currently 41%. But, according to the article, 64% of students who attend the U of M who study abroad graduate in 4 years.
Further studies need to be done, but for now, it appears that those of you who weren’t sure about studying abroad during college need to rethink that idea.
On the other hand, those who have graduated college would undergo professional training in their field to enhance their skills and widen their knowledge. Surprisingly, one of the sites that offers these kinds of training is http://www.wjbtraining.com. You can check it out for more information.
