Program Description:
In this program, facilitated by CIEE, students take courses in Barcelona: the largest city on the Mediterranean Sea and brimming with culture, sport, fashion, finance, media, and entertainment. CIEE’s Business and Culture program invites business students to improve their Spanish language skills and earn credits toward their degree with courses at CIEE Barcelona and Escola Superior de Comerc Internacional (ESCI) or Universitat de Vic (UVic). Students take one Spanish language course tailored to their skill level. Students live either with a Spanish-speaking family or in a shared apartment with CIEE students. In addition to their coursework, students can opt for an internship to gain practical experience with NGOs, schools, businesses, and more. Students can visit nearby Roman ruins, see Salvador Dali's work, summit Tibidabo Mountain, and take weekend trips to other Spanish cities.
