Course Summary

In this new era of globalization, the effects of information technology have spread to all parts of the world, with English emerging as the predominant language of international business and communication. The development of the Greater Mekhong Sub-region as an increasingly cohesive trade region has brought with it a rising demand for highly qualified, multilingual professionals. Fluency in English offers more than individual access to international news, information, and knowledge. It has also become a vital strategic tool for the economic, political, and social development of any nation, and the young men and women who are comfortable in this language are increasingly in demand.
