The Global Business with German concentration is an interdisciplinary hybrid combining the International Business major of Hamline School of Business (HSB) and a business-oriented German minor of the College of Liberal Arts (CLA). This concentration is designed to address a need in the marketplace for an understanding degree that combines the traditional values of a Liberal Arts education with the needs of the international business student. Hamline University’s international business curriculum covers the fundamentals of the business administration, with an emphasis on international business. Foreign language courses, a study abroad experience in Germany and an internship stress the use of language. Global Business with German is designed for business students to achieve near fluency while getting some concrete experience in German business.
Students are required to take five German courses beyond GERM 3220 - Intermediate German II.
Students are required to complete an internship. MGMT 3960: Internship with Seminar is offered twice per year in the School of Business, and INTD 3990: Internship is offered by the Career Development Center in the summer. The internship must be in Germany in a German company or a U.S. company with operations in Germany.
