A university in Texas this year plans to add three new business degrees intended to help graduates fill anticipated job openings for the future. The institution’s new degree programs include marketing, with an emphasis on data and analysis, and information systems, where students can learn how businesses can use computers to improve their work. The Texas University is also adding a global business degree that is to include foreign language and cultural studies, as well as study abroad programs.
This institution isn’t alone. In Indiana, a university is introducing an international studies minor where students can learn about foreign cultures. The program is to focus on foreign languages, with a choice of Chinese, French or Spanish, as well as world and human geography, an Inside INdiana Business news item noted.
