  • Appalachian State University / Faculty Profile: Dr. Martin Meznar
    students have some autonomy when it comes to building their major requiring only that they learn a second language live abroad and take two classes that every one in the major must take Beyond that they choose from a list of electives to tailor their experience to suit their goals Meznar hopes that students within the program will leave more culturally enlightened than they arrived acting as emissaries for global awareness back in the states Specifically he has expanded the focus of study abroad teaching opportunities beyond Europe and into the developing world He is particularly interested in exposing students to something beyond their comfort zone and stretching their thinking by introducing them to culturally and economically distant areas such as Brazil Thailand Malawi and Cuba among others Beyond their social impact these trips serve as a valuable time for faculty to bond with their students on a deeper level throwing them into situations together that inevitably spark interesting conversation Meznar muses on his time spent with students on a riverboat in the middle of the Amazon My fondest memories are talking with students on these boats about everything from the environment to economics Meznar says He describes the scene as a mutually enlightening setting The world is not as it was Meznar says We live in a global community He is adamant about driving this point home to every student that walks through his door The international business program will offer a sound education but more than that it will open up students to an entire world that they may have never known without it Apply Visit Info Program International Business BSBA The International Business BSBA degree at Appalachian State University provides students a sound understanding of international business principles coupled with language training and first hand international experience
