MBA in Spain
Considering Spain as your study destination?
With one of the best climates in Europe, a distinct cultural identity and a growing number of internationally-recognised universities, it’s little wonder why Spain is one of the top MBA destinations for international students and one of the most visited countries in the world. Whilst a high proportion of Spain’s international students flock to the cosmopolitan cities of Madrid and Barcelona, you will also find large student populations in the likes of Granada, Valencia and Bilbao.
Although Spain lies within Western Europe, one of the wealthiest regions in the world, both tuition fees and living costs are very reasonable compared to some of their European neighbors. You’ll find that the majority of courses around the country are taught in Spanish, but there are increasingly more English-taught programs in the international cities of Madrid and Barcelona. Those two cities are also home to some of the best business schools in Europe such as IESE, IE and ESADE, all of which rank amongst the top 20 in the continent.
Combine this teaching excellence with the enviable Mediterranean way of life and you’ve got yourself one of the best study locations in the world.
- Spain has several co-official languages in addition to the national language of Spanish such as Basque, Catalan and Galician. Basque bears no relation to the other languages and is considered to be one of the oldest surviving languages in the world.
- Madrid is not only the capital city but also the literal geographic center of the country.
- The Sagrada Familia – the most visited tourist attraction in Barcelona – isn’t actually scheduled to be completed until 2026.
- The University of Salamanca is the third oldest university in the world having been founded in 1218.
