For US employers the demand for foreign language skills is greater than ever before. Whether it is in the boardroom, in the field, with customers and partners, or on social media companies today are increasingly more likely to conduct business in a language other than English. Consequently, a command in multiple languages is a valuable asset for Nebraska students and employees—not only in boosting their marketability in the workplace, bus in helping them thrive in a global economy.
