LCP + Your Major in Business


Because working internationally is more than just business

Professional work doesn’t happen in a bubble but in a broader socio-political context. Your career will thrive if you have a better understanding of current events, historical precedent, cultural expectations, and – of course – language.

Why do LCP with your major in business?

You want a major that lays a strong direction for your future career, but you also want to stand out with your international perspectives.

What’s LCP all about?

  • Coursework tailored to professional issues
  • Internship or study abroad
  • Scholarships for your international experiences

Whether you just want to keep improving your language skills or study culture or you’re convinced you want to work internationally, LCP is right for you. Our classes will use the other part of your brain that you don’t get to exercise in your primary major.

Majors + Minors

What language and culture do you want to pair with your primary major? You can do an LCP major or minor with these!

Minors only

If you want to make inroads in the Russian-speaking or Chinese-speaking
business worlds, check out these LCP options.

Interning Abroad

First and foremost, LCP internships are about the cultural and language experiences. However, our LCP students have worked at amazing organizations such as Bosch, Daimler, and John Deere International. Where will you go? You can find out more about internships for credit here.

NOTE: In some cases, an approved credit-bearing study abroad experience can take the place of the internship. Contact us, to get the conversation started!

Meet your LCP Ambassador

Jazmin Chavez

Business Management, Spanish LCP

& International Studies

Hi! My name is Jazmin Chavez, and I am a sophomore in business management, Spanish LCP, and international studies. I am originally from Oskaloosa, Iowa. I am a member of the Latino Student Initiates, STA community, and one of the Spanish WLC ambassadors this year. I am a native Spanish speaker and have always loved the Spanish language, so when I received an email from Alissa the summer before my freshman year about possibly majoring in Spanish LCP, I knew I had to know more about the program! I love how perfectly it fits with my business and international studies majors. I was able to study abroad in Valencia, Spain, this past summer, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. It helped me immensely by allowing me to experience a different culture, and it allowed me to broaden my Spanish vocabulary. If you are interested in majoring/minoring in a foreign language, the LCP program, studying abroad, or anything Spanish-related, please feel free to email me or come to my office hours (Thursdays, 2-3 pm in the LSRC), and we can talk further!
