AT A GLANCE/LOCATION
Microsoft, IBM, and Costco are just a few of the familiar names with presence in Seville, making it an ideal base for those students looking to learn about international business – in English or Spanish – while absorbing Spain´s unique culture. At the same time, students wishing to fulfill degree requirements in the sciences, psychology, communications, Spanish, etc. can also find their niche in the program. With well-preserved history and tantalizing fare everywhere, you’ll find plenty of inspiration to explore around one more corner and practice your newly minted Spanish language skills.
Seville has its origins in the trade routes controlled by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC. Romans, Goths, Muslims, and Christians established their capital here before it became the most important city in Southern Europe and gateway to the Americas in the 16th century. The commercial hub of its region, the city preserves many traces of its past and traditions. With 700,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Flamenco Biennial and the European Film Festival to alternative theater venues, bars with live music, beautiful streets and open spaces and, of course, one of the most respected bullrings in the world.
