Brown University and IE University have partnered to offer a 2-week summer program that blends global business and humanities with an immersion in Spanish language and culture. Brown University, known for its humanities curriculum, and the IE, an undergraduate university that focuses on business and international relations, offer seminars, lectures, and workshops that expose students to key economic, political, and cultural debates of contemporary businesses and societies.

As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Segovia is an ideal place to study Spanish language, culture, global business and international relations:

Segovia’s people and buildings reflect the influence and blend of different cultures, businesses, and governments.

Field Trips

In addition to language classes, students will immerse themselves in Spanish language and culture by visiting the historical sights of Segovia, Madrid, and Salamanca.


The capital of Spain, Madrid’s cultural and artistic heritage blends seamlessly with its cosmopolitan modernity. The city’s historical legacy is evident in its medieval center, which dates back to the Hapsburg Empire and houses famous landmarks, such as the expansive Plaza Mayor square and the Royal Palace.


Located in the Castile y Leon region west of Madrid, Salamanca is an ancient town and home to one of the oldest universities in Europe. The historic center of Salamanca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its important Romanesque, Gothic, Moorish, Renaissance, and Baroque monuments.
