Why this webinar?
International student mobility (ISM) is often perceived to enhance the career prospects of graduates. This is because studying abroad involves the opportunity to acquire skills in addition to pure academic competencies, including language skills, intercultural competence and personal development, and these skills may enhance employability. However, study abroad experience is not necessarily an advantage per se and the extent to which it pays off in the labour market depends on a number of factors. In this webinar, Dr. Nicolai Netz will guide us through recent research on this topic and explain some of the reasons for the patterns observed. He will also point out some avenues for future research.
