School Business Studies Trip to Barcelona and Costa Brava

Take a business studies school trip to Barcelona to give your students a better idea of Spanish business and how it works on both a national and European level!

The vibrant city of Barcelona is an important economic hub, not only for Spain, but for the whole of southwestern Europe. It’s a major tourist destination and is also an important centre for commerce, fashion, media, science and the arts - so there are lots of interesting visits for business studies groups.

Visit the busy port, a local newspaper or Barcelona’s stock exchange and watch your students’ interest in business and economics grow!

Why not join forces with your school's Spanish, art, geography, fashion or food technology departments, to make this a cross-curricular school trip to Barcelona?
