Benefits of Studying at an American University Overseas – Madrid

Studying at an American University Overseas, Is it Worth It?

If you were to search the web for information on studying abroad, you would likely find 10 Reasons, 25 Benefits, 15 Best Places, etc, etc…  But here’s my take on why studying at an American University in Spain can and has been beneficial to me. Perhaps my experience can help you as you make your decision to pursue an American degree.

Employment – If you plan on working and living abroad, an American degree is one of those degrees that is well recognized and highly valued. Especially as a foreigner, that is a non-US student, it allows you to stand out and have an advantage over other applicants. In my research, I have found that a lot of employers for multinationals and even NGO’s prefer having employees that hold an American degree because the degree in itself already says a lot about the candidate, for example: many American Universities are highly regarded because of the high standards for admission, the level of research and innovation produced, and how well prepared the candidates are upon graduation. Also, if you are from a different country and study in an American University, it tells your future employer that you have adapted to living and studying in a different country, you are flexible, and likely work well with people from other cultures.

Flexibility – Most American universities will allow you to apply as “undecided.” Undecided means you are not yet sure about which major to pursue. And although, in the beginning you may feel as though you already know, it is a relief going in as undecided and having the option to explore other possibilities before locking into a career choice blindly. Another advantage of this undecided status is that it allows you to take a variety of different courses. Through these different courses you can explore and see which you are more interested in and would like to major in. Who knows… some of these exploratory subjects and skills may even end up being useful in your future job.

The Future –   Speaking about the future, being in an American university could possibly jump-start your career. American universities are very active in career development and in helping students find employment after graduation. Because of this, large company recruiters are actively looking for people to hire straight out of college. So you could go from being handed your diploma on graduation day and to starting a new job the next.

Although you are in college studying, on your path to becoming a huge success in your field, do not forget that you are in a foreign country. It is easy to get caught up in the loop of going to class, doing your homework, going to the grocery store and repeating it all over week after week. Having the opportunity to study abroad is already a great thing but you should be mindful and get the most out of it by traveling and exploring nearby places, trying the food, talking with locals, and enjoying the entire experience – yes, even the awkward moments. The memories you make during college will always stay with you, so why not make them worth reminiscing about with a great education that focuses on the future and for me this happened to be in a great country, Spain!

Study Abroad Spain: Living in Madrid

Study Abroad Spain: Living in Madrid

Here are some great insights from one of our current International Business students:

When living in Madrid it would be a plus if you spend a few weeks with a host family before finding your own place. This will force you to practice your Spanish while you’re at home and have traditional Spanish meals prepared right in your kitchen. It will also give you some time to learn which areas you should be looking into for your apartment instead of going for it blindfold.

Madrid is a big city which has so much to offer that it might seem impossible to do all the must-see sites and some exploring of your own without getting lost. This is where Madrid’s great transportation system comes in. I cannot stress how great the system truly is! It doesn’t even matter where you go, chances are there is a metro, bus, or train headed that way. Buses, trains, and metro cars are clean, safe and punctual. Even if you do not use public transportation back home it will take you very little time to get accustomed to this one. They are so practical, opening from 6am to 1:30am, which is a step up from the Barcelona metro which tends to end at midnight.

Although over 6 million tourists visit Madrid every year, the Madrileños are very keen on their language. This is why you should definitely plan on taking a few Spanish classes or brushing up on the ones you took in high school. Spanish is a fairly easy language to grasp, especially if you are out and about with friends, going to restaurants, the movies, bars and other places. Wherever you might be from, Madrid will be somewhat of a culture shock, but this is part of what makes this city such a great place – its unapologetically Spanish with deep cultural roots.
