Our Community
Wittenberg University - New International Business Major

Mark Grimes, Treasurer of Sweet Manufacturing Company, was recently invited to participate in the launch of the International Business Major at Wittenberg University. Mark graduated from Wittenberg with a major in Spanish, having spent his junior year in Sevilla, Spain. He then earned an MBA in International Management at Thunderbird School of Global Management.

Mark shared with those in attendance that during his 29 years at Sweet, he has worked closely with his colleagues to expand the company’s presence in the international marketplace, particularly in Latin America.

Approximately 20 years ago, Mark assisted Wittenberg’s strategic planning efforts by serving on a subcommittee focused on the school’s Business Department. One of the items that this group strongly encouraged was the introduction of an International Business Major which combined business, language and cultural studies. Mark is very excited to see that recommendation come to fruition, and he was honored to participate in the launch of this important new program for Wittenberg students!
