Madrid Spain
STUDY IN MADRID, SPAIN

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid - ISA

Madrid, the capital and geographic center of Spain, is a vibrant city with intense cultural, artistic, and intellectual activity. Take in impressive royal palaces, pristine parks, and world-famous art museums. The city itself is a unique combination of old and new. Certain areas of Madrid are filled with modern high-rise apartments and bustling commercial zones, while other areas offer traditional landscapes with picturesque neighborhoods and quaint cafes. Inhabitants of the Spanish capital, referred to as "madrileños," celebrate life at every turn, enjoying the company of friends and making the most out of each day. Madrid's cultural diversity, world-famous art and architecture, and dynamic nightlife appeal to students of all types!

Founded in 1989 and name for Charles III of Spain, the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is an innovative public research university that has been ranked as a top 50 university under 50 years old by QS World University Rankings. UC3M's Business Administration and Finance and Accounting departments are AACSB accredited.
Students at UC3M in the Business, International Studies & Communication program will take classes on the Getafe campus, which includes two libraries, sports facilities, recording studios and auditoriums, and a cafeteria. Students in the STEM program will take class on the Leganés campus, which offers a library, cafeteria, and sports facility center. Both campuses are located about 30-40 minutes south of the center of Madrid.
