Madrid Campus Tour

Located in Madrid’s uptown financial district, IE's campus occupies a series of sites within a minute’s walk of each other. Take a look at the photos and videos to see our different Campus buildings, such as the library, classrooms, auditorium, student lounges, and work spaces.


If you decide to join us at IE, your learning will go beyond the academic courses, and extend to a rich array of on and off-campus activities, and the cultural and professional life in the city of Madrid. Why Madrid?

  • Madrid is the capital of Spain and Europe’s fourth largest city. As the nation’s capital, Madrid is the epicenter of Spanish culture, business, and politics.
  • IE’s campus is centrally located in the Salamanca neighborhood in the heart of the city.
  • Spanish is the native language to 500 million people around the globe and the world’s second business language. You can learn it or improve your Spanish at IE for free through extracurricular classes on campus.
  • As Madrid is strategically located in the center of Spain, it is the starting point of all the main highways and high speed train lines, connecting all major Spanish cities and international destinations. You can travel all around Europe throughout your student year in short trips and with affordable airfares.
  • Madrid is the foremost financial and industrial center of the country. It is home to Spain’s largest stock exchange, as it hosts most of the important national and international companies.
  • Madrid’s 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 outdoor cafés).
  • Madrid is also very well-known because it is a city that never sleeps, thanks to its thousands of shows, bars and discos.
  • Although Madrid is one of the top 5 cities in Europe, it is distinguished for offering affordable housing and good prices for social, cultural and gastronomical plans. “With less, you can do more” than in most other top destinations in Europe.
