Madrid, Spain

The Madrid Internship Program is offered for those students who are looking to enhance their Spanish language skills while working abroad in one of Europe's most important vibrant commercial centers. Students with sufficient language skills take three courses along with an internship, which ranges between 15 and 20 hours per week.

Students enhance their Spanish language skills while fully immersed in the Spanish work culture.
