Hurren is a Global Business Management & Marketing major from the University of South Florida, and interned virtually in Barcelona in Summer 2021.

What are you up to these days? Have you graduated? Are you working? How did your experience in Barcelona have an impact on your life?

My favorite thing about my Barcelona experience was the workshops – it gave me a chance to reflect on what I learned and an opportunity to present on my time abroad.

If you were to sum up your Barcelona experience in one to two words, what would you say? My Barcelona Experience is…

Advantageous

Explain why you chose those words.

I chose this word because I discovered through it a new type of art that called contemporary abstract art, which helped me to develop my own business.

If you had one perfect day in Barcelona where would you go, and what would you do?

If I had one perfect day in Barcelona I would go to Park Güell – I would spend my whole time discovering this heritage site and enjoying the moments over there.

What is one piece of advice that you have for future students coming to Barcelona?

Don’t even hesitate to apply to this program because you will not only learn a lot of new things, but you will have so much fun!

Why was Barcelona SAE the right program for you?

The Barcelona SAE program was definitely the right program for me – I was SO glad to discover this organization because it fits into my major and it allowed me to get credit to meet my study abroad requirement on my home campus. My internship was exactly what I was looking for, and even though it was remote, I was able to gain practical experience at an affordable price.
