dc.description.abstractAs business becomes more globally integrated, organizations are focusing more and more on managers who have foreign relations and global market experience. International education through study abroad programs stands as one of the greatest tools for expanding a student's ability to interact in the changing global economy, developing college graduates into international managers. This paper consists of research conducted to determine the factors influencing students to participate in study abroad programs. Contributing factors and limiting factors were identified and analyzed using a survey distributed to College of Business students at Northern Illinois University. The results reveal that length, cost, and graduation delays all have significant influence on student participation. Personal relations and perceived skills also limit participation. Finally, an overall need to promote study abroad opportunities to students early in their academic career is emphasized.en_US
