According to the Harvard Business Review, English is now the global language of business. With over 1.7 billion people speaking English at a basic level worldwide (that’s one of every four), there are more and more multinational companies mandating English to be used as the common corporate language.
And through the global influence of native English speakers in science, cinema, music, fine art, broadcasting, engineering, and the internet in recent decades, English is now the most widely learned second language in the world.
So with job applications becoming increasingly more competitive for global positions as well as those in LATAM, it’s becoming quite likely that a professional in most every field will need to be proficient in English to score their dream job—or at least land the role on the next rung of the ladder.
Fear not! English language programs in the US have designed some flexible, focused, hands-on programs for professionals seeking English language skills to help them deep dive into their careers and expand their global reach and impact.
