We're an Academic Leader in Study Abroad
IES Abroad has been around since 1950, and has built a reputation for an emphasis on top-notch academics through it's programming. We consistently refine what it means to be an international education organization, often creating innovations that are the first of their kind. With annual program assessments, student evaluations, and even the prestigious Quality Improvement Process certification, our programs are unique. All programs are overseen by an in-house academic team comprised of highly-qualified global thinkers, many of which who have PhDs. What's more is that we also value the input and thoughtful eye of our Academic Council and Curriculum committee, which is made up of IES Abroad colleagues and elected members of our academic consortium schools.
One of the most ground-breaking innovations to come out of our own academic team is the IES Abroad MAP Series: a rigorous system of assessment that set the standard for all study abroad programs in the field. Sharing these high standards with the field at large is just one way IES Abroad contributes to the international education community. As a leader in the field, we believe in sharing our wealth of knowledge to strengthen study abroad for all students as a whole and ultimately transform international education for the better.
