Translating Knowledge Into Success
The expansion of programs and experiences that prepare students for life in a global society has been among the highest priorities of the university. Demand for employees with knowledge of foreign languages in fields such as international business, industry and national security is projected to grow by 22 percent in the next decade. To give students a competitive edge - and to provide Ohio with business professionals who can work effectively across countries and cultures - Kent State created a graduate program that combines study in language translation and business administration. It is the first of its kind at a public or private university in the United States. Students who complete Kent State's unique program will earn an MBA and a Master of Arts in translation.
