Global Education and Career Development Abroad (GlobalEd) has been functioning since 2009 as an educational institution with a special focus on the development of skill sets within the academic discipline of our program participants. GlobalEd designs Career Path Programs by combining the study abroad experience with language learning, leadership training and internships. We offer credit and non-credit options to cater to both undergraduate students and recent graduates.

 

CAREER PREPARATION

The purpose of this program is to provide students the opportunity to expand their Spanish business language skills as well as apply their academic knowledge to a "real world" environment.

The detailed information in our housing sheets describes the housing accommodation, amenities, occupants, location, description of the neighborhood and a distance chart to local points of interest.
