Welcome to


The mission of the Department Of Business Administration involves the acquisition, assimilation, transformation and exploitation of knowledge to make a productive contribution to the improvement of society. Our vision is that of a multidisciplinary international leading European business department with capacity to influence the research agenda in business economics. Our values, which are in line with those of the University, strive to promote the development of all those individuals who form part of our community. In order to implement our mission, vision and values, we have developed an Strategic Plan (2016-2020).

The Department of Business Administration of University Carlos III, Madrid has an international faculty and is committed to high standards of research and teaching. In recent years, our faculty members have published their research in journals such as the Journal of Finance, the Review of Financial Studies, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Journal of Accounting and Economics, the Accounting Review, the Review of Accounting Studies, Econometrica, JFQA, or the Review of Finance.

We provide faculty members incentives to publish in top journals, advanced computer resources, and access to the main research databases. Faculty members are also active in looking for research funding from public and private institutions.

The department hosts a weekly seminar series, which brings to the department top international researchers. There is also a weekly internal seminar series where the department’s faculty and Ph.D. students present their work.

We encourage interaction with researchers from other countries by regularly hosting international visiting professors and by facilitating visits of our faculty members to universities around the world.

The department offers the Phd in Business and Finance, as well as several Master programs, both research-oriented and designed for professional practice. We offer official Master degrees in Management, Finance, Marketing, and Actuarial Science, as well as an MBA. All graduate programs are taught in English.

At the undergraduate level, the members of our faculty teach mainly in the Bachelor Degree in Business Administration, ranked first in the country by the widely followed ranking of Bachelor Degrees of Spanish newspaper El Mundo. Our undergraduate degrees are offered both in English and in Spanish, so knowledge of Spanish is not a requirement to teach at the undergraduate level.
