The Tennessean reports on the launch of the new undergraduate program in International Business at Belmont University. U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander spoke at a luncheon at the Massey Business Center boardroom honoring the launch of the new program.
Just down the hill from Belmont University are Music Row record labels owned by British, French, German and Japanese companies. Not far down Interstate 24 is the Nissan automobile manufacturing plant, another Japanese-owned operation. They’re all signs of Tennessee’s place in an increasingly global economy, meaning Belmont’s new international business major will be an important tool for the state in years to come, U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander and school officials said yesterday.
