Minor in International Business Economics at The College of Wooster
This unique program started in the 1980s gives students who major in a non-English language a chance to build skills in business and economics to prepare for a career in an international setting. To navigate and operate in complex international and global business institutions, student must understand multiple cultures, their particular histories, languages, linguistics, and rhetoric as well as basic business principles.
Students must elect a non-anglophone language/cultural major to complete this minor. They must complete all courses required for the major in their language or cultural area studies area of choice while taking on the coursework for the minor in international business economics. Students are encouraged to connect language or culture to a business-related issue in their senior independent study thesis.
All students at The College of Wooster complete at least two semesters of independent study under the guidance of a faculty mentor, culminating in a thesis delivered in the spring of their senior year.
