Madrid Internship Program

Immerse yourself in one of the most traditional yet modern cities in Europe!

Madrid is Spain's capital and largest city, located on the river Manzanares in the center of the country. Madrid is considered the major financial center of the Iberian Peninsula and hosts the head offices of the vast majority of the major Spanish companies.

The Madrid Internship Program is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to develop greater awareness of Spanish culture and to enhance language skills in the context of a professional experience. Not only will your language skills grow exponentially, but you will gain a perspective on how people work and live in today's Spain that a typical study abroad experience cannot provide.

The Tippie College has partnered with EUSA to bring Iowa undergraduate students a customized academic internship opportunity in Madrid. The program is nearly 9 weeks in length. Students stay with Spanish families and commute on public transportation to their internship. After a three-day orientation, your eight-week internship begins.
