Witt adding international business major
Program to have five major components, including capstone course with a focus on globalization.
Wittenberg University has added a major in international business to equip students to solve issues on a global scale.
Beginning in spring, the university will add the major to “follow
current trends in the U.S. and abroad” and because it’s “unique and appealing to employers globally.”
“A robust international business program integrates well within the liberal arts, and provides unique experiences and perspectives for Wittenberg students,” said Sunny Jeong, associate professor of business and economics and director of international business.
The program, under the university’s Department of Business, will help students understand international business theory and practice. It has five major components, including a core of basic business courses, world language courses, cultural component courses, elective interdisciplinary courses with an international focus, an internship or student abroad experience, and a capstone course with a focus on globalization.
Students in the program will learn about several topics such as economics, finance, accounting, management, marketing, political science, language, sociology, East Asian Studies and international relations, as well as study abroad or participate in an internship abroad.
“This program also provides students with a broad range of knowledge, experiences and critical thinking skills that will help solve complex social, economic and environmental problems that we face on a global scale. Those skills are transferable to any profession or graduate program they choose to enter,” Jeong said.
