There is room for creative spirit in both of my majors, and even my minor. Getting a liberal arts education gives me that option to take classes unrelated to my future career that I am taking for pure interest.
Today, almost every business in the United States is international in some manner, and there’s no better time to explore a career in international business and economics at Mount Union. In this program, you’ll acquire an overall understanding of business organizations and develop a deeper grasp of the special challenges that international operations present. You’ll explore the impact of politics, different cultures and international diplomacy on the opportunities available to the world’s corporations.
A unique aspect of international business is the need to understand and adapt to the culture and business customs of others. So, you’ll pair your business studies with a minor in any one of the foreign languages offered at Mount Union and broaden your perspective about other cultures through a study abroad experience, earning at least six credits in an international university. This educational experience will truly prepare you for a number of rewarding careers.
