“I could not have been more pleased with the level of professionalism, attention to detail, helpfulness, and enthusiasm that [CEA CAPA] provided throughout the process. Not only was the US staff extremely helpful and timely, but the on the ground staff in Paris went above and beyond our expectations. And while I believe that partnering with [CEA CAPA] for a study abroad is perfect for a first-time program or faculty member, even an old pro like me can benefit from their excellent level of service and commitment.”

Dr. Chris Haynes

“[CEA CAPA] has demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting our business students both academically and culturally. They are very responsive to requests we have made regarding internships, and updates to academic coursework. In every instance, they have been very diligent, efficient, and business students report a very positive experience at [CEA CAPA] sites.”

“Over the six years that we have worked with [CEA CAPA] on our custom program to Rome we have been consistently impressed by the quality of collaboration, the attention to details—both logistical and academic—and the collegiality of the staff both in the US and especially in Rome. Furthermore, [CEA CAPA]’s program pricing has been highly competitive, and they have been very responsive and creative in finding affordable and high-quality solutions to our needs.”
