Mission & History

The Latino Business Student Association is one the largest and most active pre-professional business organizations in California. It was founded in the fall of 1978 with the following pillars in mind: to develop the young men and women into the leaders of tomorrow through professional exposure, community involvement, and social interaction.

 

 

We are a FAMILY working towards the advancement of our peers and community through a shared commitment to higher education and a dedication of fulfilling the pillars we are built upon.

 

The Three Pillars of LBSA

 

Professional Exposure

One of LBSA's goals is to prepare students for the corporate world. In doing so, at our weekly meetings we invite speakers to come and share with us their experiences that have lead them to become successful in their careers. In addition, LBSA provides its members with the opportunity to improve their professionalism and to network through a series of events such as resume workshops, our semi-annual Corporate Luncheon, and a variety of mixers with companies from various industries.

Community Involvement

As members of LBSA, we are dedicated to our community by acting as role models to younger generations. Every semester we have several youth conferences that bring local high school students on campus with the purpose of exposing them to the college lifestyle as well as encouraging them to continue in their education. On top of this we also have a variety of other events such as our the annual "Para los Niños" event, a day where we bring Christmas to families who might not otherwise have one.


Social Interaction

In addition to professional networking and community involvement, LBSA has proven to be a strong and unified organization socially. We believe that social gatherings bring our members closer together, which enhances not only LBSA's unit, but our member's college experience as well. In joining LBSA, you will make one of the best investments in your college career. You will acquire various skills, which will develop you into a well-rounded individual. You will also have the opportunity to become a leader by joining the executive board and will make friends that will last a lifetime in the process.
