International Business & Language Area Studies Mission
The mission of the International Business & Language Area Studies program is consistent with and supports the mission of St. Norbert College in providing an opportunity for students to enhance their intellectual, personal and moral development through the strong foundation in the general education program and the course requirements in the major. More specifically, effective communication, decision-making, problem-solving skills and understanding of ethical issues are developed through study in the IBLAS major. Students are taught and encouraged to apply these skills as responsible citizens of a diverse, interdependent and changing world. The IBLAS program is dedicated to melding theory, practice and disciplinary specializations. This integrated interdisciplinary major forms a foundation for our graduates’ professional and personal achievement as they become aware of and join an international learning community.
