This program is based in Valencia, Spain's third largest city. Combining urban life and a relaxed, seaside atmosphere, Valencia is becoming one of the most popular destinations on the Mediterranean coast. Valencia's old city center is made up of historic buildings, cathedrals, shops, restaurants, and businesses, while in other parts of the city, modern architectural landmarks illustrate Valencia's rich multicultural roots.


Students will be housed in pre-arranged apartments near the Old City.


You will be responsible for making your own travel arrangements to Spain and back. The program officially begins and ends in Valencia. All transportation to required program activities and company visits within Spain is included.

the course was interesting, but I really liked the professor a lot. He is a great teacher. however, the overall academic experience felt a bit rushed.
