What is the Official Master's Degree in Business Administration (MBA)?

The Official Master's Degree in Business Administration (MBA) is offered by the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration (ICADE) at Comillas Pontifical University, through ICADE Business School.

The MBA Program opens doors to a successful professional career in the fields of Management and Business Organization, by providing fundamental contents, typical of the tradition in the teaching of Business Studies (Management, Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources and Operations), but combined in such a way that students are exposed to the reality of the Business World in an inter-functional and intercultural way.

This MBA offers the possibility of specialization in Technology, Management, Finance or Marketing

It puts the most current real-life situations of the World Business scene in the hands of its students, and endows them with tools for solid analysis and actions, fundamentally through experimental learning. The program offers the opportunity to study abroad, the possibility to specialize in Technology, Management, Finance or Marketing and to gain real professional experience (such as through an internship in a company, a consulting project, an entrepreneurship project...). It also offers the possibility of completing a Executive Programme in Business Analytics at the end of the Master's Degree Program.
