International education! Is it really worth it???

Some years ago, I wanted to leave the shores of Nigeria to study abroad, I just wanted to “gerrout” in Naija slang. I considered different options, countries, programs/degrees; anything that will get me an admission letter to proceed to embassy. I conducted research on post-graduate institutions in the US, UK, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Dubai, South Africa, or Ghana to mention a few. It was an herculean task to achieve this dream considering a lot of factors; costs, environment (crime, discrimination and government in power), and post-graduation prospects and opportunities.

For four years, I researched MBA schools that could provide me with life-long learning, life-changing experiences and opportunities to explore the world around me and to achieve my short-term career goal.  Eventually I settled for a one-year investment that I can confidently and proudly state here that “IT PAID OFF”.

Various research revealed that international graduates are attractive to employers because of the knowledge and experience they bring to the table, exposure to diverse culture, and global networking opportunities. It serves as a gateway to an enriching, fulfilling, interesting and educationally stimulating experiences of a life time.

Bruce Pohlmann, in his article on “the benefits of international education” explained that an international student develops an understanding of other cultures that can bring new insight into understanding his own culture as well. The new networks developed while studying overseas can be important when seeking employment.

I took my chances and it landed me countless opportunities in Canada. One out of all these opportunities is Ocrej General Services.
