In the Fall of 1992, we developed an IMBA program. It is open to any undergraduate degree regardless of his/her background in language and/or business. Deficiencies are met in the precedent Summer in both language and business courses. The Summer sessions (I & II) bring students to the completion of third year in college Spanish. Then they take the sequence of four semester courses (Hispanic Culture, Business Spanish, Correspondence and Documents I and II). The following semester is spent in a Spanish speaking country doing a special project. They return to the University of Memphis for the final semester of the IMBA program.
