Why study abroad?By looking at the AIB website, you are already on your way to setting yourself apart from the more than 95% of college students who will never study abroad and will only see the world from television, internet, or at most, as a tourist. Please contact us and we will help you to put on your path towards your international education experience. With various summer, winter, semester, and year programs, you are sure to find a program that is right for you. The AIB offers courses for credit through affiliated institutions. Exploring this website is the first step to obtaining the many valuable benefits of an international education experience.

Studying abroad for a summer, winter, semester, or year will give you a fresh perspective on yourself, the United States, and the world. By living in a foreign country you will constantly challenge yourself in many new and exciting ways and gain a level of independence you never knew you had. Studying abroad will expose you to diverse people and viewpoints, and you will get to experience a different way of life apart from yours in the United States. You will be immersed in the language, culture, and people of Germany and other European countries and will get to experience life as a resident, not as a mere tourist.

Achieving all these things can be done while earning credit towards your current degree. When you return from abroad you may actually be ahead of your classmates who stayed behind.

Today’s competitive job market requires applicants to distinguish themselves, and international education experience is the perfect way to do so. Having international education experience is an incredible resume booster, as it shows prospective employers you are motivated, independent, and generally more qualified. Additionally, obtaining German language skills can make you eligible for all sorts of jobs that you may have otherwise been unqualified for. German is the 2nd most thought after business language in the world.

The staff at the AIB is excited to bring you all of these wonderful benefits of a study abroad experience. Congratulations on taking your first steps to one of the best experiences of your life!



President George W. Bush“By studying foreign cultures and languages and living abroad, we gain a better understanding of the many similarities that we share and learn to respect our differences. …I call on … [students]… to participate in activities that increase their knowledge of and appreciation for global issues, languages, history, geography, literature, and the arts of other countries.”

President George W. Bush
