My internship through Barcelona SAE was the experience of a lifetime and I enjoyed every second of it! Once you graduate, it’s so important to stand out as a unique applicant when you enter the job search - and being able to say you interned abroad puts you at the top of the list. You learn and adopt skills that you couldn't have gained otherwise."
