The August issue of Money magazine featured Steve Schroeder, assistant dean of undergraduate programs at the Wisconsin School of Business, in a story exploring the hidden costs of college.
In the article, titled “The Math That Matters,” Schroeder discusses the costs of studying abroad in college. He said that when it comes to travel in college, the benefits outweigh the costs. Schroeder said global experiences help students develop invaluable workplace skills and a mature perspective on global issues.
“Students develop a global mind-set and many other skills critical to employers when they take advantage of study-abroad programs. It's a way to gain valuable global business experience and cultural fluency outside the classroom,” Schroeder said.
