Higher education should assume a lead role in providing international education competencies to students to meet the growing world-wide demand for internationally educated students. Acquiring international knowledge and on-site cultural experiences are minimal international competencies that higher education should meet, which will enhance job marketability of graduates. Measures must be taken across disciplines to include international components into curriculums including but not limited to the offering of on-site experiential study abroad opportunities. Sport, business, and tourism are prime arenas from which international experiences can be exploited. Selected study abroad programs at The College at Brockport will be discussed as a means to support the literature that describes the role of higher education in producing internationally educated students.
