The Business and Culture Spain-Morocco Program—specifically designed for business majors, intended business majors, or students with a strong interest in international business—offers 6 hours of direct UGA credit. The program travels to the cities of Sevilla and Granada in Spain and the cities of Casablanca and Fez in Morocco. Through visits to companies and public/non-profit organizations, this program offers students the opportunity to examine the economic and international business differences between these neighboring nations.  In addition to the business component, a strong cultural component will introduce students to the historic and present-day events that connect both countries.
