Study Abroad Increases Creativity per INSEAD/Northwestern University Study

We know that there are many benefits to studying abroad and we encourage students to use their skills from these experiences when interviewing for jobs. The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology published a recent study showing that living abroad actually does enhance creativity. Conducted by researchers at INSEAD and Northwestern University, the study included nationals from several countries. This short interview of William Maddux, one of the lead researchers in the study, provides a concise summary of the findings and methodology.
