MIT and Harvard Academics Agree: ‘Travel Broadens the Mind’

The 67-page paper written by Mark Mortensen of the MIT Sloan School of Management and Tsedal Beyene of Harvard Business School actually focuses on business travel, but its message seems relevant—and, admittedly, is kind of obvious—to any traveler, really. The Economist’s Gulliver blogger distills the paper’s conclusion: “[B]y heading abroad, you gain valuable insights not only into those cultures you’re visiting, but also into your own domestic operations.”

Here’s a pdf of the paper, which is titled “Firsthand Experience and The Subsequent Role of Reflected Knowledge in Cultivating Trust in Global Collaboration.”

Irresistible, no?
