The Department of Modern Languages offers an undergraduate Certificate in Spanish for International Business for students seeking an academic credential showing that they are prepared to meet the challenges of doing business in the Spanish-speaking world.
This certificate is available to all students across the University, as well as non-degree-seeking business professionals seeking to increase their skill set and value in the international market.
These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with the Chemistry advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
This is an on-campus program.
Declaring This Certificate

This requires an unofficial transcript from CU Denver showing that you are a current undergraduate student, or a copy of former transcripts indicating an undergraduate degree has been previously granted.
