Why Madrid?

  • The city

    De Madrid al cielo

    Madrid is the capital and heart center of the country,  and is buzzing with energy, innovative ideas, and life.

    When you feel like exploring, you’ll be close to exciting destinations in every direction, and extremely well-connected via air and rail.

  • The Language

    Nail the top two global business languages

    English is the world’s business language, and Spanish is the world’s 2nd most spoken.

    Hone your skills in Spanish just by living in Spain—or with our extracurricular classes on campus—and simultaneously perfect your English every day in your classes and group work.

  • The lights

    The lights never go out

    Find yourself inspired at 8 o’clock in the morning, 6 in the afternoon or 3 de la madrugada.

    Madrid is the true city that never sleeps. An eclectic mix of tradition and innovation, Madrid will knock your socks off with culture, amazing food, and an energy you won’t find anywhere else.

  • The Hotspots

    Something for everyone
