The SLU-Madrid economics program offers a 4-year comprehensive foundation in economics and liberal arts in a global environment that promotes both cultural understanding and broadens our students' perspectives. SLU-Madrid's economics program will help you realize your full potential and make you competitive in the modern, global economy.
Our international faculty and student body make studying in Madrid an outstanding and enriching experience. Your classwork will be complemented by guest lecturers, visits to companies, and internships. As one of the financial capitals of Europe, Madrid is an ideal location to study international finance, trade and economics.
The curriculum is completely integrated into that of the St. Louis Campus in Missouri. In fact, economics 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 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 economics 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).

Our economics program is interdisciplinary and prepares students for careers with multinational corporations, financial institutions or government agencies.
Our economics graduates typically find private-sector jobs in banking, consulting, insurance, real estate, brokerage firms, marketing, data management, budgeting, general management and sales.
Government agencies employ economists to work in finance, labor, urban economics and international trade, among other fields. Finally, international organizations and nonprofits - such as the Brookings Institute, the IMF and the World Bank - seek economists to carry out research and analysis.
