This certificate allows you to combine business management with Spanish. You’ll divide your study equally between both subjects. It offers a broad grounding in key concepts associated with business management and a sound knowledge of the basic concepts associated with the study of Spanish.

You’ll explore how businesses develop strategies, handle risk and make decisions. You’ll see what’s involved in functions such as marketing, accounting and finance. Combining this with the study of a modern language opens doors to other cultures and communities and can provide a key to the global workplace.
