As the nation's capital, Madrid is the epicenter of Spanish culture, business, and politics.
Madrid is the foremost financial and industrial center of the country. It is home to Spain´s largest stock exchange, as well as the most important national and international companies. Madrid offers the perfect opportunity to conduct international business. The gateway to South America, Madrid has an increasingly important role within Europe and worldwide.
The majority of business takes place on the Paseo de la Castellana, the financial and political hub of Madrid. IE's urban campus takes advantage of all that Castellana has to offer, located squarely in the middle of it all.
In Spain all roads lead not to Rome, but to Madrid. Strategically located in the center of the country, it is the starting point of all the main highways and high speed train lines which connect it to all major Spanish cities. The immense amount of passengers which fly to Madrid's Barajas International airport make it the 4th largest in Europe and 10th largest globally. It also boasts more flights to South America than any other airport.
But there's more than business and politics when it comes to Madrid. Its geographical location gives it a priceless advantage, an excellent climate. Enjoy the weather, with a pleasant stroll on a sunny winter day, or sit down and enjoy the spring breeze in one of the many "Terrazas" (Spanish Cafés).
