INTRODUCTION

FROM NIU SITE

Specialty

The educational goal is to cultivate students’ English language ability with a secondary focus on another international language, and to equip them with a sense of liberal humanism and a global vision.  The program goes beyond basic language training and brings together three important disciplines: Literary Studies, Linguistics, and Language Teaching. Language learning demands both cultural and professional knowledge. The MA program cultivates professional language and skills in international business communication. The master program’s new title is dedicated to preparing future business professionals by cultivating students with business knowledge and skills—especially the capability to conduct planning, executing, and evaluating business practices correspondingly with business and cross-cultural communicating skills in English—for globalized business corporations.
