Barcelona


Casa, Mila, Barcelona, Spain

The Global Internship program in Barcelona is an all-inclusive program and provides students with the opportunity to live, learn, and work in one of the most culturally diverse cities on the Mediterranean Sea.  Spend some time indulging your other interests, as well. Barcelona is a culturally diverse city that speaks both Catalan and Spanish. Located within the city’s edges are beautiful parks, historic stadiums, famous architecture, beaches around the Mediterranean Sea, and live music and theatres echoing throughout the city’s walls. As one of the world’s fashion plates, Barcelona is also popular for shopping and Las Ramblas is a famous series of 5 interconnected streets that boast being one of the finest pedestrian boulevards in the world filled with cafes, shops, street performers and so much more.

Barcelona also provides a fascinating variation on Spanish culture. The city loves eating, drinking, and partying as you might find in Madrid, but does everything with more of an international influence. Barcelona shows a slightly different side of Spain than you might find elsewhere due to its geography and the influences throughout its history. The resistance of the Catalans over time has left the city with a free-spirited exuberance that both charms and welcomes. The strong cultural and linguistic roots of Catalonia are deeply embedded in the city’s past and give Barcelona much of its unique flavor.

A number of Barcelona internships are available in almost all industries, most notably communications, public relations, event planning, journalism, publishing and many more.

Language Proficiency
Overall the more Spanish a student speaks the more opportunities and options they will have available to them during the internship placement process. However, fluency is not necessary to participate in the program. Students with lower Spanish proficiency may be paired, at the internship site, with a student who has stronger Spanish skills on specific internship projects.

The Global Internship program in Hong Kong provides a great opportunity to intern in a developing world economy known for its innovation. In Hong Kong, the modern stands side-by-side with the traditional. It’s a city that boasts many seemingly contradictory titles. One of these, the East-meets-West cultural aspect, is enduringly interesting. Both fast-paced and personal,

Hong Kong offers a distinctive blend of Chinese tradition and a wealth of influences from international waters. It is a city of multiple islands with an amazing skyline and exceptional architecture. Navigation is easy within the city, as it has a modern public transportation system and signs are in both English and Chinese.

Language Proficiency
As most businesses in Hong Kong conduct their daily work in English, Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin) proficiency is not required to participate. Those students who do have either Cantonese or Mandarin proficiency will have a greater number of internship options available.

Because of Hong Kong’s developing economy, it is a very competitive market for internships in many industries such as advertising, communications, public relations, marketing, art galleries and many more.
