Employers are looking for students with global experiences and leadership experiences — and these the kinds of experiences you will get through study abroad.  Here’s what the employers have to say:

“As MGM Resorts International continues to build luxury integrated resorts around the world; having leaders that are global citizens has become the #1 priority when reviewing candidates.” — Adam Miller, Senior College Relations Consultant, MGM Resorts International

“I completed 2 study abroad experiences. It’s given me a lifetime love of languages, different cultures, and a desire to always seek out new experiences. Learning to be resourceful in an unfamiliar culture, communicating in a language not my first, & challenging myself to keep trying when something seems difficult is all related to my studies abroad. This helps me today in finding ways to break the ice with new people. I genuinely am always trying to help people feel comfortable which is the foundation of a career in hospitality. Study abroad experiences can easily be parlayed into interview responses as well because you will have examples of tenacity, working through something unexpected, not having a perfect plan to follow, and having to make an introduction! Finally, people like interesting people! You have things to talk about, stories to share and that people can relate to or want to learn more about, and it can start a dialogue…. which is the first step in building a relationship.” — Mollie Moore, University Relations Manager, Darden

Student Experiences:

Hear from students about their Chaplin School study abroad adventures in China, Dubai, Hospitality at Sea, and London by reading the blogs at

“I had a great educational trip and was able to get in a lot of information in two weeks.  I can’t believe we actually did so many things.  I think the Study Abroad is a good program for students; it widens our horizon globally and culturally and prepares us for the world.  I could not have asked for a better Study Abroad trip and a more friendly set of classmates and professors.” — Audrey Allen, Study Abroad in London 2013

“Being given the opportunity to take part in this amazing adventure has really opened my mind to exploring more opportunities to advance my hospitality career.  If someone were to ask me while I was still at my community college, if I wanted to leave Florida, I would have looked at him or her like they were crazy.  Now, after taking this trip, it makes me more excited than ever to make that big move. It is also motivation to see even more of the world, and learn even more about various cultures and religions.”  — Lindsay Echevarria, Study Abroad in London 2013
