Language courses have been offered at UCLA Anderson for more than two decades. A beginning-level elective course, "Spanish Language and Culture for Business," is offered through the CGM and designed specifically for business students. The course is available to full-time, fully employed and executive MBA students in the winter quarter, and a continuation course is offered during the spring quarter. The objective of the course is to familiarize students with Spanish language and culture at a practical level, focusing mainly on communicative proficiency, basic grammar and common vocabulary appropriate to daily scenarios, including informal and professional business settings. Given the strong correlation between language and culture, the course also introduces students to basic cultural understanding and business etiquette and provides role-playing opportunities for a variety of settings.
