About The Program

Work with a local or multinational organization in finance, business, technology, or government on the bay in northern Spain. Dubbed a “smart city” for its use of technology, Santander is a modern commercial hub. While interning, you’ll have academic and professional tutors helping you prepare for the global job market. Coursework in business and economics as well as Spanish language training complements internship time. Outside of class, go hiking or skiing in the forests of the Cantabrian Mountains. For a special surprise, check out the stone age paintings and spectacular formations in the caves of Cantabria. As the weather warms up, head to urban beaches for a relaxing break.

Where you'll study

Santander is the capital of the beautiful Cantabria region. Home of the multinational Santander Group, it’s a banking super-center with a thriving international port. With its connections to the city’s many business and finance industries, the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Cantabria arranges internship placements. The University of Cantabria is a public institution with locations spread across the city. This beautiful region is bordered on one side by the Cantabrian sea and by a mountain range on the other. You’ll be taking courses exclusively through the Faculty of Economics and Business Studies on the main campus in Santander.
