About

Students have the opportunity to complete a dual degree program with the M.A. degree in Translation and the M.B.A. degree in Business Administration. A separate application must be submitted for each program. Students can view admission requirements for each program on their respective catalog page. The Translation - Business Administration program is offered at the Kent State University.

Overview

The Dual Degree with a M.B.A. degree in Business Administration and the M.A. degree in Translation is for students with a sufficient level of proficiency in a foreign language who wish to integrate a graduate business education with advanced translation training. This program is suitable for those whose career goals include assuming middle or executive management positions in international business or language industry enterprises or those interested in starting their own business in the language services industry.

Program Learning Outcomes

Graduates of this Translation - Business Administration program from the Kent State University will be able to:

  • Critically examine translations based on objective and subjective criteria.
  • Translate text types of moderate difficulty in various domains from the source language into English.
  • Copy/edit their own work and that of others.
  • Articulate and defend translation choices based on a basic understanding of translation studies.
  • Identify distinguishing features of different text types that are meaningful for the translation act.
  • Research the subject matter of a text in appropriate resources.
  • Perform tasks at Intermediate High and Advanced Low levels of proficiency using the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines. Proficiency in ACTFL terms is understood to describe a range of qualities rather than an absolute norm and will vary according to task type, language function, topic and skill (listening, speaking, reading, writing).
  • Demonstrate knowledge of how to vary the register (formality level) of their speech.
  • Read somewhat longer and more complex prose that have been written for native speakers and not edited or adapted for students. They will be able to read a wide variety of text types such as poems, plays, novels, magazine articles, newspaper articles, brochures, pamphlets, menus and letters. Some texts they will understand completely; for others, they will be able to grasp the main idea and some or most details.
  • Compose routine social correspondence, take notes, write cohesive summaries and resumes, as well as narratives and descriptions in the target language.
