The Gig Economy and the Changing Landscape of Work
Is gig work a fantastic opportunity for those who prefer flexible hours and to choose their work projects? Or does the absence of employee protection and stability mean that gig work is really only advantageous for companies? This new landscape is controversial and growing. Let’s discuss.

Announcing CEA's New Programs
CEA is excited to announce an expansion of our academic portfolio for 2022, with several new programs opening across different international locations in an effort to meet university and student demand.We are thrilled to introduce our newest Study Center in Madrid. CEA has operated study abroad programs here since 2000, and we’re excited to expand our academic offerings with CEA coursework. Our inaugural term kicks off in Summer 2022. In our efforts to offer more educational experiences that promote deep learning through student engagement, CEA has developed an Undergraduate Research Abroad program. This semester program, starting Fall 2022, will be offered through our study centers in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Florence and Seville, and feature a variety of academic disciplines in each location. We hope you’ll join us on June 8 to learn more about our Undergraduate Research program.
Additionally, CEA has brought our signature internship program to Grenoble, France, where students can explore placements in English or French. Fashion Studies in Paris is our newest semester program, starting Spring 2022, which will provide students the opportunity to approach fashion from the perspective of business, art history, or communication studies, or a combination of all three. Florence will be the setting of our newest J-term in Italy program. Running from late December to mid-January, this program allows students to explore the rich complexities of Italian culture while engaging with locals.

We can’t wait to see what awaits our students, and we invite you to follow along on our social media channels and the CEA MOJO blog to catch a glimpse of their summer abroad with CEA.
“I figured the first year would be a great time to go since the workload wouldn’t be as extreme as other years, and all of the experience I’ve gained abroad can be used during the rest of my college years...Overall, living abroad gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about living on my own (and with roommates), as well as how to navigate an environment so foreign to me.”
Maddison Robbins, a mechanical engineering major & rising sophomore at the Colorado School of Mines, shares her first-year study abroad experience in her CEA blog, My Freshman Study Abroad Experience in the French Riviera with CEA.
CEA in Action
Did You Know?
When the COVID pandemic pushed students and administrators out of on-campus classrooms and offices, we took the opportunity to bring perspectives from across the world directly to our students’ and partners’ desktops. Inspired by the local lecture series hosted at our Study Centers abroad, CEA launched “Global Dialogues” - an international, cross-cultural series featuring scholars, professionals, and entrepreneurs who present and discuss topics of global relevance from different international perspectives.
Dialogues are recorded and are available for viewing on our dedicated webpage. We are working to organize the Fall 2021 edition of Global Dialogues and we’d love to hear from our partners with topic suggestions for upcoming Global Dialogues. Contact Monica Francioso, CEA Florence Academic Director, at Mfrancioso@ceastudyabroad.com for any topics you’d like to see covered in the upcoming series.
