Latino Business Student Association

About Us

Our Mission

The Latino Business Student Association (LBSA) is a student-run organization established in 2003. The purpose of LBSA is to assist its members, from various ethnic backgrounds and fields of studies at UC Irvine, in pursuing professional skills and careers while raising awareness of the Latinx culture.

Our organization accomplishes this by focusing on its three pillars: Professional Development, Social Interaction, and Community Service, with the foundation of Academic Achievement.

Three Pillars, One Foundation


Create a network and maintain a stable relationship between business professionals, the community, & our members.

Community Service

Give back to various communities (local OC, environment, on-campus) by volunteering our time and effort to other local non-profit organizations.


Help our members develop and foster academic excellence through study hour, resource folder with studying tips, and more!


Develop a strong sense of community and family atmosphere through various social events hosted throughout the year, such as clubbing events, bonfires, and more!
