Right now is an exciting time to prepare for a career in the global marketplace, using advanced language skills in the field of international business. Clemson’s language and international trade major combines intensive foreign language study (French, German, Japanese, Mandarin or Spanish) with a professional business concentration in one of the following areas: international trade, tourism or applied international economics. Old boundaries are dissolving rapidly, and doing business often means doing business abroad. Students who choose this major want to immerse themselves in another language and another culture. They want to learn how to live, work and succeed in a business environment that’s anything but local.
