The Carlos III MBA is a one-year, full-time international MBA program providing an internationally accredited, high-quality graduate business qualification. We prepare professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds for leading management positions in today's global and innovative world.
The MBA is offered at the university’s graduate campus in downtown Madrid, in the historical district of La Latina, at walking distance from the historical city center and main touristic attractions such as the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor or Puerta del Sol. It is also at walking distance from the Madrid Rio Park, one of the newest urban developments in the city along the Manzanares river. The facilities are modern and host a variety of Master’s programs, thus providing a vibrant graduate learning environment.
Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) was created in 1989 and is recognized by employers as one of the leading Spanish universities. It has been ranked by QS as one of the “top 50 under 50” universities worldwide (ranking of universities under 50 years of age) and it is particularly well-known for the high quality of its business studies. QS has ranked UC3M as one of the top 150 business schools worldwide and Eduniversal ranks it as one of the top 5 business schools in Spain.
The UC3M MBA is a small program and provides a supportive environment with fluent interaction among students and faculty. We provide a rigorous, multicultural learning experience focused on real, modern-day management issues. We approach business problems and opportunities with creative questioning rather than with ready-made answers. In the best tradition of universities, we provide a long-lasting educational experience.
The MBA helps students develop crucial skills such as teamwork, communication, and problem solving skills.
The program has been accredited since 2006 by the prestigious Association of MBAs (AMBA). It is therefore part of the very exclusive club of only five Spanish AMBA-accredited MBA programs. UC3M was also the first Spanish public university to have its MBA program accredited by AMBA and still is the only Spanish AMBA-accredited public MBA.
The MBA is delivered in English and provides extra-curricular Spanish language training so that all students learn or improve their Spanish and can finish their year with a working knowledge of one of the leading languages in the world.
