Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing
Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing : Exchange Programme
ESCI-UPF has exchange agreements with universities worldwide. Thanks to these programmes, our DOERS can travel, gain unique experiences and become explorers and travellers ready and willing to put their newly acquired skills into practice in a multicultural environment, as well as increasing their knowledge and expanding their horizons in the process.
ESCI-UPF offers students several opportunities to take part in an exchange programme at an overseas university: Erasmus+ (European universities), bilateral agreements (universities in the rest of the world) and internships in Europe through the Erasmus+ traineeship programme.
Competition for places on exchange programmes is tough, so you need to be well prepared in the following areas:
- Good academic record (students’ average score is the main criterion for awarding places).
- Good command of the language of instruction at the university where you want to study (many places stipulate a minimum level).
- Strong motivation and firm academic commitment.
You need to start preparing early to give yourself time to make all the necessary contacts and complete all the required procedures. You should also bear in mind that grants and financial assistance are limited; students are expected to cover transport costs, among others, themselves.
What are the benefits?
Exchange programmes offer the following benefits:
- It is a unique opportunity for personal growth.
- You acquire new knowledge and expertise that enhances and rounds out your CV.
- You diversify your skill set, ready to take on new challenges and able to adapt to change.
- You learn about living and working with people from different cultures.
- You can increase your command of languages.
- You mature as an individual and as a professional.
Exchange programme success in figures
- 90% of students who take part in an exchange programme are very satisfied with their experience.
- 73% of lecturers believe students who have been on an exchange programme receive a better academic education.
- Students who have been on an exchange programme are 54% more likely to find work, compared with students who haven’t.
- 72% of graduates with some experience of international mobility think they are now in the right job, and their level of satisfaction is higher than average.
- Companies, organisations and institutions believe graduates who have been on an exchange programme are better prepared to take on responsibilities and also earn higher salaries.
If you’re in your third year and are keen to gain professional experience in an international environment, broaden your options for professional development, discover other cultures and ways of working and hone your language, communication and interpersonal skills, then you’ve got the ideal profile for taking part in an overseas internship through the Erasmus+ traineeship programme.
This EU-funded programme enables university students to do traineeships in companies or institutions in other European countries. Up to three months’ funding is available. These traineeships have to be authorised and supervised by ESCI-UPF in just the same way as any other internship.
Traineeships may be done in any country (other than Spain) that is a member of the European Economic Area (which includes all the countries in the European Union plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) or Turkey; and in any eligible company as per Erasmus+ regulations (a company is understood to be any organisation of any kind and any size that carries out an economic activity in the public or private sector in any industry, including the social economy).
Eligible companies do not include European institutions (such as the European Commission or the European Parliament), any organisations that run EU programmes (to avoid any conflicts of interests or duplicating funding) or national diplomatic missions or consulates.
