Abstract

Measures the effects of experiences of undergraduate business students completing the Summer Study Abroad programme. Information was gathered through structured questionnaires and informal interviews. Responses were grouped into four areas: cognitive changes; cultural awareness; personal growth; and changes in subsequent behaviour. Results indicate that the international study programme has an extensive and lasting effect on participants, leading to greater cultural awareness, personal growth and an interest in worldwide affairs.
