Business team working on project

The Spanish - Business (BS/BA) Double Major at Ohio State combines two strong programs, one in the ASC-Humanities (Spanish) and the other in 1 of 12 Undergraduate Fisher College of Business Specializations, to prepare the best candidates for a variety of career opportunities, or for competitive programs at the graduate and professional level.  During completion of the undergraduate Spanish Major and Business Specialization required coursework, OSU students will develop substantial language proficiency and knowledge of Spanish-speaking cultures through campus-based coursework, internships, immersion abroad experience, and local community involvement.

Professions / Advanced Degree Opportunities: The Arts & Sciences Center for Career & Professional Success and the Fisher College of Business Careers & Recruiting each provide excellent opportunities and professional resources to OSU students at Bachelor, Master, and Doctoral levels in Spanish and Business Specializations.
