22 Aug IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad
Date : October 1–3, 2017 |
Venue: Renaissance Hotel | Washington, DC
Theme : Navigating a Changing World: Building Talent with Global Experience
Studies show that graduates with an international experience find employment faster and are more prepared than those without it. Yet less than 10% of U.S. college students graduate with a global experience.
The 2017 IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad will bring together leaders and practitioners from education, government and business for action-oriented discussion on global workforce readiness. Many more U.S. students need to be extended the opportunity to gain an international experience abroad so that they can be prepared to become leaders in tech, science, innovation, and solving some of the pressing problems in our interconnected world.
The Summit is part of IIE’s Generation Study Abroad® initiative that aims to double the number of U.S. students studying abroad by 2020. Our goal is to encourage meaningful actions that drive up the number of students participating in international education.
