Location & Culture

Click to Open

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 theater and the European Film Festival to alternative theatre venues, bars with live music, beautiful streets and open spaces and, of course, one of the most respected bullrings in the world.

The program details

Established in 1986 for business and Spanish majors and minors, this program helps students improve their language skills while they explore economic and business management in Spain and the European Union. Learning takes place through coursework, lectures, internships, and company visits.

CIEE Business and Society courses (SEBS) are held at the Universidad de Sevilla School of Economics and Business. Students can also take one or two regular university courses with Spanish students at the School of Economics and Business (University of Seville) or at the University of Pablo de Olavide (UPO).

University of Seville – This university has been one of Spain’s leading institutions of higher learning since the 16th century, and now hosts some 65,000 students. Its many schools, departments, and institutes serve the educational needs of Spain’s most populous region.

University of Pablo de Olavide (UPO) – With nearly 11,500 students, UPO is the second largest state university in Seville. Its 345-acre campus is 30-minutes from the center of the city. UPO offers undergraduate and graduate programs in traditional majors, as well other areas, from biotechnology to translation. Modern facilities include campus-wide internet access, sports facilities, science labs, and more.

CIEE  Seville – Our home is a beautifully renovated palace, originally built in 1725. Close to the Royal Alcazar palace, it’s a 10-minute walk from the University of Seville. The site includes classrooms, a computer room, the Language Resource Center, and the offices of Student Life and the Program Managers.

Language placement – Prior to departure for Seville, all students take a scheduled CIEE online placement exam. Results determine appropriate placement in language courses. Placement in many upper-level courses depends on a high score.

Language support – Our Language Resource Center is staffed by language professors and Spanish students majoring in Spanish philology, who help students with reading, writing, comprehension, and speaking. Tutorials on university course content are also offered. Students agree to speak only Spanish to encourage language and cultural acquisition.

Internship Placement – Participate in our “Internship Fair” and practice your interview skills. Placement is determined by language ability, job skills, background, and professional attitude in the “Internship Fair”. Because Spanish firms make final selections, internships in a particular company are not guaranteed. Students have interned for organizations like Biomedal, Simetrycal, Wellness Telecom, CyO Arquitectos and Telefónica – Andalucia Open Future, as well as smaller firms and companies.
