PROGRAM STRUCTURE   

The BUSADMIN 3400 Business and Commerce of the European Union course is only offered in English.

This course begins with a study about the historical roots, the birth and development of the European Union in the last 50 years, analyzing the first treaties and the later ones added in the Union. The different organizations that form the components of the Union and the role of each member state are studied on this course. There is special emphasis on the importance of the European monetary union, the common coin and the main European financial institutions.

PROGRAM  REQUIREMENTS

  • A student must have at least sophomore standing at the time of participation.

  • A student must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 grading scale.

  • A student must be in good academic standing at the time of participation.

  • No prior knowledge of Spanish is required.

 

 

ACCOMODATION

All students participating in our program are placed in carefully screened Spanish homes, usually in pairs. Living in a Spanish home is one of the most important aspects of the students’ intercultural experience because it helps to improve language skills and increase cultural awareness, two key goals of the program.

Naturally, adjustments with regard to customs, food, and heat must be anticipated by the students. SAIIE does take dietary and other personal restrictions into consideration when assigning students to their host family.

The principal goals of increased fluency in the language and greater familiarity with the culture are an integral element of the experience that SAIIE strives to provide. Therefore, all students must live in Spanish homes; that is, no students are allowed to live independently in their own apartments or in any other housing situation that is not approved by and under the direct supervision of the Institute's staff.

 

 

ACADEMIC, CREDIT, GRADING AND TRANSCRIPT

When you are accepted into the SAIIE program you should inform your academic advisor and study abroad office at your home campus about your intent to go abroad on our program to make sure you will receive all the credits that you take through the SAIIE program.
