Two Degrees, Unlimited Opportunities
I am proud to endow a program that is the first to fully integrate comprehensive international studies into a business curriculum in order to prepare graduates to work anywhere.
- Jon M. Huntsman
The Huntsman Program in International Studies & Business is a unique, four-year interdisciplinary undergraduate course of study that integrates business education, advanced language training and a liberal arts education. Huntsman students earn two degrees -- a B.A. in International Studies from the School of Arts and Sciences and a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School. Huntsman students specialize in the area of the world in which their target language is spoken and graduate with a nuanced understanding of the political, economic and cultural complexities in a changing world.
The 40 course-unit curriculum is designed to provide academically accomplished students with a broad liberal arts perspective and a practical business education that enables students to be successful in a variety of career paths. Graduates are pursuing careers around the world in diverse areas such as finance, politics, public policy, consulting, law, marketing, medicine, diplomacy, non-profit management, public health and international development. Huntsman students count among them Rhodes, Marshall and Fulbright Scholars and are accepted to select graduate and professional programs.
