“English is currently perceived as the predominant language of business throughout the world,” said Sandi Edwards, Senior Vice President for AMA Enterprise, a specialized division of American Management Association that provides assessment, measurement and tailored learning solutions to organizations.

“This is a trend to watch. There is an emerging realization that English may not be the exclusive business language in the future. And forward-thinking organizations clearly see the value of the multilingual leader and look for greater language proficiency in their global leadership candidates.”
