The Bachelor in Business Administration will comprise two sections run in Madrid and Segovia as from the 2012-2013 academic year.

IE University’s Bachelor in Business Administration will have a section based in Madrid for the coming 2012-2013 academic year in addition to that of Segovia. The Madrid-based option is the latest addition to IE University’s business administration programs, which to date have been run exclusively at the University’s Segovia campus. Both sections will offer a degree program with a markedly international slant and a special focus on entrepreneurship, with the same faculty, program content, and extracurricular activities.

The launch of this new section marks a new development phase for IE University designed to offer new options to students. IE University students can now opt for the Madrid-based campus situated in the city’s financial district, or the historic Segovia campus housed in the Santa Cruz la Real convent built in the 12thcentury, with 1,100 students from 75 countries.

The Bachelor in Business Administration, recently accredited by international management education accrediting agency AACSB, will be run in both English and Spanish in both Madrid and Segovia. It is an officially recognized degree program with 200 students from 52 countries who receive a solid education oriented to doing business in a global arena.

The differentiating feature of the program is that it combines management education with a solid grounding in humanistic values in an international environment. Students undertake highly diverse activities such as the Social Impact Project internship program, whereby they work with NGOs and Spanish and international institutions on innovative projects focused on social development in different areas of the world.

“IE University’s commitment to a dual campus will benefit future students by providing broader educational options,” said Salvador Carmona, Rector of IE University.
