Business professionals and MBA students who want to learn Portuguese and Mandarin can sign up for online courses offered by the Global Business Center at the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School.
“Working Portuguese” and “Working Mandarin” will be offered Jan. 27-April 7, 2014.
“We benefit from knowing the languages of the countries where we work or do business,” said Maria Elena Rodriguez, director of the Working Languages Program. “Our classes develop language skills and deepen understanding of how business is conducted in the countries where these languages are spoken.”
Both courses will be taught at the beginner level. A fee of $575 for students and $775 for working professionals covers 10 weekly online sessions with the professor and a weekly online conversation hour with native speakers of the language being studied.
