IE Business School is a private graduate school founded in 1973 as an Instituto de Empresa. It has a single campus, in central Madrid, and offers masters, MBAs and doctoral programs, including PhDs and DBAs (Doctor in Business Administration). It forms part of the larger IE University and has partnerships with universities around the world, including the Yale School of Management and the London Business School. It enjoys a prestigious reputation and attracts students from around the world, making for a varied, multicultural environment.
The international student body, top rankings, fantastic job prospects, and a wide variety of courses taught in English. Something that students really appreciate is the central location in Madrid’s Salamanca neighbourhood – nearby joints like Goiko Grill and Starbucks are favourite between-class hangouts.
Hard to get a job in Spain after your studies - most students find career opportunities abroad, not in a student-friendly part of the city.
