For the Business-Minded

International trade is a fast-moving, dynamic sector of the world's economy. In addition to business acumen, our international trade degrees give you language and cultural competency skills necessary for job success in global private and public industries.

Should I pursue a double major?

Absolutely! The demand for employees with world language skills is greater than ever before. Proficiency in another language and culture will set you apart from your competition in the job market. 

Enhance your major with a practical minor.

Studying languages and cultures makes us better suited for today’s global workforce and its challenges. Enhance your major with one of our minors, and you’ll develop skills employers want like critical thinking, problem-solving, and cultural competency.
