International Business and Culture

Dr. Tom Cooper and Dr. Laura Hunt, Program Coordinators | Program Requirements & Courses Offered

Georgetown recognizes that business and culture are inextricably linked. Opportunities for students to participate in the global society and to engage effectively in business will be enhanced if students have studied business, language and culture in an integrated and reflective manner.

The language foundation courses will enable students of French, German and Spanish to reach the intermediate-high proficiency level, as defined by the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages, in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing in the target language. Students of Japanese will reach the intermediate-low level. Furthermore, by means of a study of the great literary works, the arts, theater, music, geography, political structures, family life and history , students will be prepared to understand, enjoy and participate in the foreign culture.
