Hispanic Studies

More than 400 million people speak Spanish. That makes it the second most-spoken language—and an essential language skill for global professionals.

Bentley’s Spanish degree explores the language, culture, history and current affairs of Spanish-speaking regions—and connects them to pressing business topics.

Through a unique curriculum that integrates language, culture, history and contemporary affairs of three principal regions of the Spanish-speaking world (i.e., Spain, South America and the Caribbean) with general business skills, this major will equip you with special skills to expand your employment opportunities in the global workplace, including banking, tourism, journalism, IT, health care, government and law.

Every Hispanic Studies major must complement their program with foundational business studies, leading either toward a minor or a second major in Business Studies. This ensures you leave Bentley with solid business skills, in addition to Spanish language proficiency.

When business takes a leading role

Show business is called that for a reason, but not every film buff thinks to take their passion to a business university. Valerie Boucher ’20 is different. She always wanted to pursue a career in film and entertainment and, at Bentley, she parlayed a major in Information Design and Corporate Communication into an internship with Bradley Cooper’s Hollywood production company. After an amazing summer there, she’s now one step closer to her dream.

Creating a bond that everyone can share

Since she was 7, Erika Rouleau ’17 only wanted to do one thing: Own her own restaurant. She chose business school over culinary school, eventually starting a “fast/casual” sushi on-the-go restaurant while still at Bentley. Learn how, for her, working with food is about bringing people together.
