Business looks primarily for confident and self-reliant individuals, not only for people who have studied particular aspects of business. Almost any liberal course of study can lead to a career in business. Students who plan such careers are encouraged to major in whatever field is of most interest and to add to that major significant study and internship experience in other areas. In this way they develop basic abilities that can then be transferred to learning on the job. It is important to develop a high level of competence in the use of English, economic principles, quantitative methods, and analytical abilities. Knowledge of a modern foreign language is an invaluable asset to anyone whose work may involve international trade.
