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, including critical thinking, problem-solving and cultural competency.

Because our world is interconnected.

With an in-depth knowledge of world politics, economics, culture, language and more, international studies majors are poised for careers in both the corporate and non-profit sectors. You'll hone your critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills as you gain insight into how our world is increasingly interconnected.
