We want to take professional development opportunities a step (okay fine, a leap) further and introduce a new four-week summer program which we have aptly named the “Barcelona SAE Intensive Internship Experience (IIE).”

This program maximizes your time to help gain work experience, build a job portfolio, and have the experience of a lifetime in Barcelona.

So, what’s the program like?  Well, you and the other interns will complete specific projects from local companies in Barcelona, while taking language classes, attending professional development workshops, and joining in cultural and social activities. This program is one of the best ways to make the most of an internship experience if you only have a short amount of time to dedicate to Barcelona.

Program Outline

During your Intensive Internship Experience, you will:

  • Contribute to various projects while interning with an organization in Barcelona
  • Engage in 20 hours of intensive Spanish Language Courses fit for your level
  • Enhance your Professional Development skills through presenting your final project and participating in workshops
  • Learn how to showcase your experience abroad on your resume and in interviews!

Why Intern in Barcelona?

Barcelona is an innovative and professionally thriving city, which makes it an incredible place to intern.  The city allows for professional growth and international exposure to the business world.  Despite economic struggles in the rest of Spain, Barcelona continues to flourish, internationalize and succeed, making it the ideal city to develop your professional goals and gain work experience.
