Spain: Barcelona SAE Academic Study Center (SIS)

The Barcelona SAE Academic Study Center (SIS) is located in the heart of the city and boasts fantastic local and international professors who are working professionals in the field they teach. SIS maintains small class sizes and focuses on experiential learning, meaning that students will get individualized attention and participate actively during class. Each course includes a variety of field studies, museum visits, and guided reflection that closely tie the lessons to the city itself.

The courses at SIS encompass international and cross-cultural business topics, focusing on the city by discussing local history, art, architecture, literature, and geography. In addition, Spanish Language courses focus on spoken language skills and include valuable tools for students to debrief their experiences both in and out of the classroom. Your Barcelona experience will consist of Barcelona SAE Cultural Activities to keep you exploring the local culture and a Weekly Cultural Agenda full of events so that you know what is happening throughout the city. You’ll also have a Cultural Mentor who will help you to get involved in a club or activity based on your interests.
