It has been great working with Educational Services Abroad for Study Abroad Programs for Michigan State University. Lynn Wallace and her organization provided the perfect combination of leadership and support that significantly enhanced student experiences and made our programs outstanding successes. ESA was collaborative, creative and proactive in planning phases including selection of agendas, cities, excursions and visits. They found several outstanding presenters that matched our program objectives and content and worked with companies we engaged for student presentations.

Texas State Mass Comm Spain Program

Texas State University graduate and undergraduate students start their program off in Madrid, where they learn about the city through a literary lens and then head off on visits to the most important private and public communications firms in Madrid. After a week of firm and cultural visits broken up by delicious Spanish meals, the group travels to Barcelona, where they visit premier communications firms in Catalunya and its amazing historical and cultural sites. This program gives students a unique, insider perspective of the creative and cutting edge Communication field in Spain while also teaching students about the vibrant culture of these global cities.

Professor Emeritus, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Texas State University
ESA did a super job meeting my expectations for the business site visits. I was frankly amazed that they were able to arrange & coordinate the visits to all of those wonderful places, in some cases where we were greeted by several (not just one) staff. We always felt welcomed by them, again thanks to the ESA staff. Students were impressed & learned much, again thanks to your stellar effort on our behalf. Many of our hosts arranged professional presentations in a true business atmosphere, & several offered parting gifts to the students. Wonderful & memorable. And let’s certainly not overlook the amazing historical & cultural site visits that enthralled so many in our group, thanks to the suggestions of my colleague, Dr. Rehbein, & to your staff for their follow-through. We all are grateful for your good work in both areas.

I had the pleasure of experiencing ESA’s excellent planning and execution of a study abroad program. The economic conditions posed several challenges that ESA overcame with their hard work and determination. The entire group was very pleased with the manner in which a schedule was maintained, and the level of detail put into the schedule. Lynn, the owner, was personally involved as well, and was very accessible in the event of needed information or assistance. I look forward to returning with another group of students.
