The SLU-Madrid business program offers a 4-year comprehensive foundation in business fundamentals and liberal arts in a global environment that promotes both cultural understanding and broadens our students' perspectives. Business students can complete the international business and economics concentrations in Madrid. This degree program explores cultural differences in business practices around the world. Knowledge of other cultures facilitates successful transactions, not only in international trade, but also within multicultural teams, which are increasingly prevalent in today's globalized society. Students in this program will also learn about exporting, importing, foreign direct investment, foreign licensing and international services.
B.S. in Business Administration concentrations available:
Information Technology Management
Leadership and Human Resource Management
The International Business academic curriculum is completely integrated into that of the St. Louis Campus in Missouri. In fact, International Business students are encouraged to take advantage of the seamless relationship between the degree programs at each campus by completing a semester abroad (in either Madrid or St. Louis). Students who wish to pursue this business program have two options:
1. Complete the entire undergraduate program in Spain with the John Cook School of Business (JCSB) in Missouri as the degree-granting entity.
2. Enroll in the International Business degree program at the Madrid Campus and transfer freely between the St. Louis and Madrid campuses over the course of the undergraduate degree program.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
