International Business


Political and economic changes during the past decade have placed new demands on businesses worldwide. The increasingly complex international environment requires that successful managers understand not only how business works domestically but also how it works on a global scale. UT Arlington is one of a handful of institutions that offer a unique degree program with a dual concentration in international business and a foreign language. Six languages are currently being offered.
