The professional minor in business Spanish is intended for students who wish to consolidate and improve their knowledge of Spanish in several business areas. The main aim of the minor is to teach students how to use specific business terms in Spanish and to handle selling techniques, negotiation strategies, product presentations, commercial activities, marketing, and business correspondence in Spanish. Students acquire a greater knowledge of Spanish as well as deeper understanding of Spanish or Hispanic societies and their business cultures.

The minor comprises one linguistic component, one elective component, one translation/interpretation component and three profession-specific linguistic components.
