International Language Business Major

Overview of Program

The World Languages and Cultures Department offers a major in International Language/Business (B.A.), a professionally oriented program which combines introductory and upper-division business courses with a language curriculum in Spanish, French, or Italian.

The major in International Language-Business is a professionally oriented program. Its purpose is to make language study a more career-structured discipline by providing students with the opportunity to acquire a liberal education while at the same time, taking courses specifically relevant to a business enterprise.

In order to bridge the communication gap between multinational businesses and the lack of functional language skills often exhibited by the personnel representing them, specialized language courses focusing on the business terminology and cultural setting of the countries in question complement the regular language and business courses in this major.
