This course explores business aspects of social enterprise and sustainable businesses in Spain. Spain is a world leader in sustainable business practices, and specific cultural and business aspects that have influenced the development of sustainable practices will be explored. We will also enjoy culture, art, and gastronomy in these areas as well as in southern Spain and Madrid. 

Pre-program work involves studying the sustainable business practices companies, and learning about the culture of the Basque region where these businesses are located. 

Three pre-trip sessions of lectures, in-class discussions, and trip planning, and a follow-up session after returning are held. Attendance is required as part of the course.
