Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, v13 p1-22 Nov 2006

Over the past fifteen years, at least a dozen articles have appeared in the management and marketing literature describing and supporting international study tours as valuable educational experiences. These articles, however, have focused primarily on the design and implementation of such tours, with minimal emphasis given to outcome assessments or analysis. This limited attention to empirical support for these programs is surprising given their increasing popularity, especially among business students. The purpose of this article is to extend the existing literature by assessing the effects of an international business study tour in terms of participants' perceived cross-cultural connectivity and professional development, and then examining those results in light of two personality traits among participants--self-monitoring and core self-evaluations.
