Global commerce students take advantage of opportunities to learn everywhere—on campus, in nearby Columbus, and around the world.
Last year, in addition to immersing themselves in studying both the fundamentals of economics and humanities subjects related to their chosen global region, they attended seminars and completed hands-on internships, both in the United States and abroad. Students even studied in a program for business majors in Paris.
The global commerce program enables students to blend the study of international commerce with the exceptional critical thinking and communication skills that come from a top-tier education in the liberal arts. Global commerce majors combine their knowledge of economics with a deep-seated understanding of a particular area of the world, preparing them to be the kinds of leaders needed to take on the challenges of the globalized world of twenty-first century businesses and NGOs.
“Because it is rooted in the humanities, our global commerce majors are prepared to think more deeply, more effectively, and more creatively than many of their peers when confronting problems and challenges regarding international commerce,” said program director Karen Spierling. “This means our Denison global commerce majors will be prepared to become leaders who can think creatively and critically.”
