In addition to all the Barcelona SAE benefits such as full program support, top-tier academics, and customized internships, we also offer an Affiliate Partnership Program for institutions looking to strengthen their program options in Barcelona.

As study abroad participation continues to grow, there is a corresponding increase in variety – a variety in program offerings, a variety in student’s backgrounds, and a variety in requirements for a program.  Barcelona SAE’s Affiliate Partnership Program was formed with all of this in mind and is designed to complement, not compete, with your existing international opportunities. By becoming a member, it allows you to expand your list of existing study and intern abroad programs to accommodate more of your student’s interests, budgets, and personal preferences.

Your commitment to becoming an Affiliate Partner of Barcelona SAE does not require that your institution sends a minimum number of students each year. We realize that your institution wants and needs to have many trusted programs to offer your students, and Barcelona SAE would love to be one of them.
