Program Overview CIEE Palma De Mallorca

If you want to study Spanish while developing your management skills for future leadership in business, tourism or hospitality, there's no setting better than Palma.

Enrolling directly with local Spanish students in a variety of specially designed, English-taught classes, you'll develop critical management skills, industry vocabulary, and global perspective. And with an emphasis on practical experience, study abroad in Palma provides you with various company visits, field study activities, and internship opportunities that give you insight into business and professional tourism in a foreign environment.

Program Focus

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced level Spanish speaker, study abroad in Palma offers language learning courses that suit your abilities and introduce vocabulary relevant to business, tourism, and hospitality. You'll also have your choice of CIEE electives in subjects including international marketing, entrepreneurship and innovation, sustainable tourism, international meeting and event planning, international tourism, and contemporary Spanish politics and society.
