Business at IE University (IEU)

IE University (IEU) provides an environment that gives Syracuse Madrid students the international outlook needed to be successful in a global business world. With over 65% of IEU students coming from abroad, you will study with a truly diverse community. Classes are taught in English on the IEU campus, located within walking distance of the Syracuse Madrid Center. All Syracuse Madrid students with a background in management are eligible for this program. Courses are subject to change.

Program Features

Your semester abroad starts with one of SU Madrid’s credit-bearing Signature Seminars (exceptions are made when the start of IEU classes conflicts with the seminar). You will combine coursework at IEU with course offerings at the SU Madrid Center. Typically, students enroll in 1-2 courses at IEU and 2-4 additional courses at the Syracuse Madrid center. During their study at IEU, students will have access to IEU services and facilities, such as libraries, computer labs, and sports.

You will live with hosts in Madrid (usually two students to a household, though you may choose to live with no other students in the home). This experience allows you to assimilate quickly and to immerse yourself in the Spanish lifestyle, enjoying breakfasts and dinners with your Spanish hosts, participating in la sobremesa (discussion around the table) and taking part other Spanish customs.
