IES Abroad was featured on the latest episode of the television show "World's Greatest!...", a production of How2Media.

"Since 1950, we've made our students our highest priority."

IES Abroad, the leading not-for-profit study abroad and internships provider, announced today that they were recently featured as the world’s greatest study abroad and internships program provider on an episode of the television show "World’s Greatest!...".

A production of How2Media, "World’s Greatest!..." travels around the globe to feature the world’s greatest organizations, destinations, products, and people. The half-hour show is broken into segments featuring behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. Both educational and informative, the show aims to give viewers a more in-depth peek into companies, products, people, and places they know well, or never knew existed.

Gordon Freeman, Executive Producer of the show said, “With more than 65 years of study abroad experience, and having sent more than 100,000 students abroad, IES Abroad qualifies as an expert in their field. When they say they literally ‘wrote the book’ on study abroad, they mean it, publishing a book that was later adopted by schools across the United States. We think their story will be meaningful, as well as extremely educational to our viewers.”

IES Abroad’s episode aired on Monday, March 14, 2016, at 6 a.m. EST and will be broadcast again on Monday, March 28, 2016, at 6 a.m. EST. Viewers can tune in to DirecTV Channel 305 and Dish Network Channel 250 to watch the premiere, or view their segment here:

When asked about being named the world’s greatest study abroad and internships provider, Dr. Mary M. Dwyer, President and CEO of IES Abroad said, “IES Abroad is truly honored to be featured on “World’s Greatest!...”. Since 1950, we've made our students our highest priority. We’ve set the standards for the study abroad field. And as we look to the future, we’ll continue to offer our students the absolute highest levels of academic excellence and intercultural development.”
