Catherine Waite '09
A business and Spanish double major finds how well these degrees complement each other in California, and abroad.
Catherine Waite appreciates the flexibility she has in majoring in both business management and Spanish at Santa Clara. She plans to use her management skills and language skills in a career in business.
"Business and Spanish complement each other well. Speaking Spanish has become critical in the United States, especially in California," she says.
Waite will use her language ability traveling over the next year to Argentina, Costa Rica, and Spain, teaching English and studying Spanish. And she will be studying each country's business practices while continuing to improve her understanding of a variety of cultures.
