It is an ethical imperative: to create meaningful connections between higher education, learning abroad and career opportunities in ways that represent 21st century employability. Learning abroad offers us a unique opportunity. By teaching students within an international environment, far from the familiar, we create opportunities for students to gain a valuable understanding of concepts and perspectives different from their own that will help them to adapt in any working environment. They are regularly challenged to solve problems and gain independence as they navigate new environments, people and places.

What is an employer partner?
CAPA Employer Partners will gain full access to our network of CAPA alumni, post open positions on the Alumni Network Portal, and have access to CAPA alumni networking events for advertising and recruiting. CAPA alumni have developed critical professional skills during their experiences abroad. They have done so by participating in rigorous academic and experiential programming to prepare them for jobs at top-rated organizations or graduate schools. Now the two can come together.
