About ESIC Valencia

Living in a culturally and historically very rich city and enjoying some of the 300 hours of sunshine a year on the beach - a dream? At ESIC Valencia it can become a reality. With over 40,000 students, a 51-year history, lecturers with excellent academic careers and eleven campuses in Spain and Brazil, ESIC offers an excellent opportunity to obtain a high-quality university degree. All study programmes have an international orientation and include practical exercises, many courses are offered in English and most professors also work in the business world, which means that there is a high level of practical relevance in teaching. Various media worldwide have recognised the quality of ESIC in recent years with top rankings among business and marketing schools. A small excerpt: In 2011, ESIC was the only European university to be included in the top 20 in a business school ranking by the renowned Business Week; in 2014, Américana Economía ranked ESIC as the 12th best business school in the world; in 2015, Merco Talent recognised it as the best business school in its sector in Spain; and in 2016, CNN Expansión Mexico placed the MBA as one of the best in the world. Erasmus students are welcomed with a Welcome & Orientation Day. You have the opportunity to choose your courses so that you are integrated into a class (as at HSBA), which of course makes it easier to get to know the Spanish people and learn Spanish. Incidentally, many courses only take place in the afternoon. At the small but modern Valencia campus, most courses are in Spanish, but the number of English courses is increasing rapidly. However, you can still take a Spanish course to support your studies. The classes are characterised by the active participation of the students, which (like attendance) is included in the grade. Incidentally, the beach is only about half an hour's walk from campus!
