PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Spend your summer discovering Barcelona, Berlin, and London as we explore the exciting process of starting a new business. From start up incubators and co-working spaces to already thriving multinational businesses, students will be exposed to a full spectrum of business cultures across Europe.

Students are highly encouraged to come to Barcelona early to participate in a 6-8 week internship before this course starts to add an additional 3 credits.


REQUIREMENTS
  • Minimum G.P.A. Requirement: 2.5
  • Class Requirement: Freshman-Senior Standing
  • Language Requirement: Although helpful, no previous Spanish or Italian language knowledge is required.

ACADEMICS
The Barcelona School for International Studies (SIS) offers international students the incredible opportunity to vastly improve their Spanish language skills while earning college credit with courses in English, specifically designed for them. SIS is located in the heart of Barcelona, a five minute walk to the thriving and modern commercial center called Plaça Catalunya and a seven minute walk to the quaint and historic El Born neighborhood. This location is accessible via many different metro and bus lines making the commute hassle free from any neighborhood. 

SIS is located located inside of a prestigious language and teacher training school called International House (IH). IH provides the highest quality of language classes and training to both Catalan and International students. With a number of accreditations and the ability to accredit other institutions, International House is a top leader in Spanish language acquisition, not only in Barcelona but internationally. 


Accreditation
Barcelona SIS is a Spanish institution with U.S. accreditation through Jacksonville University (JU). Upon completion of programs at Barcelona SIS, a JU transcript will be sent directly to the student’s home university.

Course Approval
Before you go abroad, Barcelona SAE strongly recommends that you meet with the study abroad office and/or your academic advisor at your home institution. After your acceptance into the program, you will be required to submit a “Approval Contact for Study Abroad” form that will automatically inform your home institution of your intent to participate on a Barcelona SAE program. With that said, we suggest that students are as transparent as possible about their plans and make an appointment with their study abroad office immediately after submitting their Barcelona SAE application.

The earlier that students plan for their study abroad experience, the easier it will be to get all of their courses pre-approved and know exactly what transfer credit will be received at their home institution. Please remember that it is best to get multiple first and second choice courses pre-approved for your Barcelona SAE program, as this will give you some flexibility in setting up your class schedule. Don’t just think about the courses that are required for your major or minor, but also courses that can fulfill your general education or elective requirements.


Course Options
Your three-credit course will be taught in English. This means courses will be primarily lectures with some teamwork involved. For the Entrepreneurship in Europe: Barcelona + Berlin + London summer program, students will take the following course:
