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.




This is a 3-credit course that will be divided up as follows: for three hours, three days a week, students will have class.  The remaining two days will be spent visiting companies in which they will see how the concepts learnt are implemented. The course is taught in English.


  • 3 weeks from mid-July to the beginning of August.
