The Essential Guide to Studying Abroad

From Success in the Classroom to a Fulfilling Career, 1st Edition. By Thomas R. Klassen, Christine Menges.

This book is a guide on how to best reap the benefits of studying abroad, and how to use an international education to begin a fulfilling career after graduation. Covering all aspects of the international student experience – inside and outside the classroom – the book encourages young people to perform their very best and succeed in their new environment. Part one focuses on the study period, with specific chapters devoted to preparing for international learning and essential classroom skills, including how to become a proactive learner. Part two addresses the career perspective with the Triple M career roadmap: me, market, and match.

The authors are: Thomas R. Klassen, Professor at York University in Toronto (Canada) and former university lecturer in South Korea (at Yonsei University) and Germany (at the University of Konstanz); and Christine Menges, specialised in career counselling approach and placement strategy for students with work experience and Director of the Career Center, MBA Programs, at the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in Germany.
