Why Barcelona SAE?

Barcelona SAE provides an enriching cultural, academic and professional experience that sets our program apart from the rest, and we specialize in this amazing Mediterranean city which allows us to give you everything Barcelona has to offer. With offices in both the United States and Barcelona, we provide you with full support before you go, while you’re there, and after you get home. At Barcelona SAE, we highly value cultural immersion, academic quality and variety, your safety, language acquisition and using the city as your classroom…so it’s no accident that each of our programs offer all of this (and more!) at incredibly affordable prices.

What Sets Us Apart

With our exclusive focus on this Mediterranean city, Barcelona SAE is a boutique study abroad and internship program that provides personalized attention. Ask any of our alumni and you’ll learn about their unforgettable academic, cultural, and professional experience – one that was beneficial not only during their time in Barcelona, but has given them a personal and professional advantage for the rest of their lives.
