Three schools that give prestige to the Spanish university system
Spain can boast of having a university system that ranks among the best in the world in indicators such as employability, equity and proportion of its population in higher education
25 years ago Crue Spanish Universities were founded. The institution was created to unite the university community under a common cause: to contribute to the progress of society through the improvement of Higher Education.
During these years, they have offered quality education to the entire territory, and achieved the European goal of 40% of the population aged 30 to 34 years having university level studies. The Spanish university system is the second best in Europe in terms of teaching indicators and third at the global level in terms of the employability of its graduates. Crue Spanish Universities are also proud of having doubled scientific production over the last decade. However, they are even more satisfied to be the world’s seventh most equitable system.
These are three of the schools willing to further improve these indicators:
ISIE, postgraduate education that ensures employment
In 2014, the ISIE Higher Business Research Institute was founded as an initiative that seeks to solve a real problem: training recent graduates solely in theoretical matters does not prepare them for entry to the labour market. Álvaro Galán, president and founder of ISIE, decided to implement a new postgraduate system in which students learn from the first day how to solve different practical cases, simulating a real work environment and mentored by managers of large companies. Since then, more than 600 students have passed through its classrooms, and they are already demonstrating the success of the model.
In addition to the different master’s course offered by the School, ISIE has ISIE Law School which, together with RSM, carries out master’s courses specialised in Law.
ESIC, Business and Marketing school
ESIC Business & Marketing School is Spain’s pioneering university and business school, in the field of marketing and digital disciplines. ESIC – with 54 years of history – seeks to boost the training of digital profiles that combine technological knowledge with a sound corporate foundation and ethical values to lead companies’ digital transformation processes. This business school and university has included the most cutting-edge disciplines of the digital ecosystem into its programmes, while at the same time maintaining a close relationship with the business world that enables it to know what organisations’ real needs are.
EAE, committed to employability and entrepreneurship
EAE Business School is committed to the professional development of its students. Eighty per cent of students improved their job situation during the year following the completion of the master’s degree, and 10 per centlaunched their own businesses. Entrepreneurial spirit is also part of EAE’s DNA, with initiatives such as the EAE Lab incubator to help grow the projects and ideas of the school’s students and former students, and the collaboration with Babson College, Boston, which is one of the most prestigious universities in the field, according to the ranking by The Princeton Review. Another of EAE’s hallmarks is its international commitment – more than 72 per cent of students are of different nationalities, and it offers residential studies in New York, Shanghai, San Francisco (California), Amsterdam and Lisbon, to name a few.
