Are you considering studying a Master’s degree in Business Administration in Spain? Here are 5 reasons to pursue an MBA in Spain.

High quality business education

When it comes to quality, the MBA programmes offered in Spain deliver more than expected. They check a range of points that are of value to the student. These include reputation, student satisfaction levels, internship opportunities, job employment after graduation, and many others. Should you choose to study at the UPCT, you will be getting high quality business education as the UPCT is part of the International Excellence Campus (IEC).

Entry requirements you can meet

Depending on the school, the path to admissions may be easier in Spain than in other western countries due to less stringent entry requirements. But this isn’t to say that anyone can be enrolled in an MBA programme. Business is, after all, a competitive field so top grades, internships, work experience, and other selling points can help you stand out from the crowd of applicants.

Unique internship opportunities

MBA programmes from Spain follow an excellent academic standard and offer unique internship opportunities. For example, our MBA degree is available with an “optional” industry placement. In this case, the UPCT will provide students the necessary institutional coverage for developing placement, being responsible of finding and selecting the company. Completing an internship is an optional extension of the MBA degree, but not necessary for getting the academic MBA title.

Study in English, but also learn Spanish

Many MBA programmes in Spain allow students to study in English, with Spanish courses available. Spanish is the second most widely spoken language. So whatever your level of Spanish language proficiency is at the beginning of your study abroad adventure, leaving with stronger skills will enrich your overall experience and broaden your prospects on the job market.

Multicultural community

Spain is home to a multicultural population. Whichever MBA you choose, you will have colleagues from all over the world. Getting your MBA in an international environment is a major advantage. It provides you with the chance for a wide networking. And for successful business, networking is one of the key elements.

Considering the benefits Spain offers to international business students, it’s no wonder that business is one of the most popular study fields in the country. Still thinking about which MBA programme is best for you? Take a look at our International MBA!
