The MABS summer program will introduce students to the Mediterranean agribusiness environment focusing on the European Union (EU) as well as the culinary and cultural riches of Spain and will include Spanish lessons. It is a varied co-curricular program that reviews the main Mediterranean value chains -wine, olive oil, fruits and vegetables, seafood- with study trips to several cities in Spain, as well as visits to successful agro-food companies and activities in and around Zaragoza. This Study Abroad program will last 4 weeks with the possibility of staying an extra month to do an internship in a Spanish company.

This summer program is organized by the Mediterranean AgriBusiness School (MABS), an initiative run by IAMZ, one of the four Mediterranean Agronomic Institutes of the CIHEAM (International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies). The CIHEAM is an international intergovernmental organization – founded in 1962 at the joint initiative of the OECD and the Council of Europe– aiming to develop cooperation between Mediterranean countries through postgraduate training and promotion of cooperative research in the field of agriculture, food and sustainable rural development.
