The University and Program
Students attending ICADE have the opportunity to study at one of the premiere business programs in Europe while living in one of the most exciting European cities. Times Higher Education listed the Universidad Pontificia Comillas as 51st in its Alma Mater Index: Global Executives 2013 which ranks institutions by the number of degrees awarded to CEOs of Fortune Global 500 companies. Comillas was the only Spanish university in the top 100 of this listing.
Students applying for this program must have a strong command of the Spanish language and be enrolled in the Joseph A. Butt, S.J. College of Business.
ICADE, part of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas, is a Jesuit university located in the heart of Madrid. Set amidst the excitement of Spain's capital city, the ICADE campus is located in the heart of Madrid and provides a gateway to everything Madrid has to offer including art galleries, alfresco dining, and beautiful parks and squares.
Madrid is centrally located within Spain and a highly cosmopolitan city that offers students a unique cultural experience thanks to its European, Mediterranean and North African influences. It is home to an outstanding architectural heritage that ranges from historical monuments, such as the Palacio Real, to avant-garde buildings, e.g. the Cuatro Torres business area and the world's first leaning high-rise towers designed by John Burgee at the Puerta de Europa.
The climate is continental and mainly dry with almost perpetual sunshine. Madrid has a vibrant and legendary night life and it was the epi-center of the Spanish cultural awakening in the 1980s known as La Movida. Bohemian cafes and galleries as well as venues for alternative and expressive art abound in Madrid, particularly in the neighborhoods of Chueca, Malasaña and Lavapiés.
Madrid's bullfighting arena Las Ventas, built in Neo-Mudéjar style, is considered to be the birthplace of bullfighting and one of the most important plazas de toros in the world. Madrid is also the center of Spain for classical music and opera, literature and sports, and it has many important church buildings. Madrid's museum district along the Paseo del Prado is known as the Museum Triangle and includes the Museo del Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Reina Sofia, Madrid's modern art museum.
The exchange program at ICADE is only open to Loyola students enrolled in the Joseph A. Butt, S.J. College of Business. Most courses at ICADE are taught in Spanish; a limited number of courses in English are available.
