Weber State University now offers something you can’t get anywhere else in Utah: a bachelor’s degree in international business economics.
“Other schools have an international component to their business programs — they offer courses and certificates — but they do not offer an actual four-year degree in international business,” said Doris Geide-Stevenson, economics chair for the John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics.
The new program is geared toward business students who want to work for a multinational organization or find employment outside of the United States. Majors must be fluent in two or more languages and participate in study abroad.
“In terms of integrating study abroad and language, our program really is unique,” said Geide-Stevenson, who expects to see the program’s first graduates in the fall of 2017. “This new degree broadens our offerings to domestic students and has the potential to attract more international students.”
