Poland is an increasingly important country in world affairs, especially in the European Union. Learning Polish grants entrance into a market where American businesses flourish and opportunities abound for educated young people. Among former UW-Madison students of Polish there are a professor of linguistics, a dentist, a financial specialist in Geneva, a mechanical engineer working for the aviation industry in LA, a computer scientist working for Google, an international sales manager, and an associate in a global media agency. They all confirm that studying Polish language and literature helped them boost their professional potential, especially in the area of interpersonal and intercultural communication.
