“Write what you know.” —Mark Twain
We are a content-driven platform for smart enlightened people. If you have global insights, international experience, world knowledge, intercultural skills, cross-cultural observations, something interesting to say, something fascinating to share…then we want to be used by you.
If you’re a student who can articulate what you’ve learned abroad, use us to show the world what you know, while boosting your resume in the process.
If you’re a professor who has knowledge to offer, share it on our platform, and let people know about your faculty-led program too.
If you’re an advisor, looking to enhance your credentials and marketability, publish some of your wisdom and insights, and see where it leads you.
If you’re a small company or office that wants to grow, but you don’t have an advertising budget, get some credibility by offering up some global insights and international knowledge.
StudyAbroadMap.com is a dynamic map where you can find great content from smart enlightened people who have been where you want to go and done what you want to do.
