Today, we stand as college students. Tomorrow, as young professionals. The transition between both inter-correlated stages is important for the development of every individual. Here at LBSA, our professional pillar strives to make sure your transition is as smooth as possible. Our founders have passed down the torch to us and we are to provide professional guidance that will help our members with their career paths. Our executive board works hard to provide our members with various workshops, conferences, network opportunities, and guest speakers. One of our biggest conferences of the year is known as the “Professional Development Conference”. Join us for an afternoon filled with workshops and hands-on interactions with an abundance of professionals in their respective fields. Remember the only person stopping you from reaching your professional peak, is that person in the mirror.
We are glad to have hosted Prudential (Fortune 500 company) for a Career Information Session. Guest speakers Bona Yu and Lincoln Lai gave a great presentation that allowed us to learn more about their business and the value they provide their customers via life insurance, retirement plans, mutual funds, investment management, and more.
Also big shout out to Guayaki Yerbamate for sponsoring our event!

Professional Development Conference
The Latino Business Student Association of the University of California, Irvine is honored to have hosted our 5th annual Professional Development Conference (PDC). PDC was initiated to provide the Latinx community at UCI, and partnering chapters, the opportunity to develop their professional skills as well as network with diverse companies that can assist participants in their professional pursuits. PDC consisted of a series of workshops where students acquired skills in which they can apply in the professional world. In addition, the students participated in a networking portion where they practiced their skills with hosting companies.
We would like to give a big shout out to our guest speakers: Frank Gomez, David Ochi, Jessica Ortega, Denisse Mejia and Kelly Rivas.
