The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) appears with 12 of its degrees in the 22nd edition of the 50 DEGREES ranking, published by the El Mundo newspaper, which includes the 50 most sought-after degrees among students and the five best Spanish universities where they are taught.

Four UC3M degrees are ranked among the best in Spain: the degree in Business Administration, the degree in Finance and Accounting, the degree in International Studies and the dual degree in Law and Business Administration.

On the other hand, two of the University’s degrees rank second nationally: the degree in Law and the degree in Economics.

The degrees in Electrical Power Engineering and Employment and Labor Relations are in third place. In fourth place, there are three engineering degrees: Computer Science, Mechanical and Telecommunications Technology Engineering.

UC3M's Audiovisual Communication degree is in fifth place.

The twentieth edition of this ranking is the result of the analysis of 25 selection criteria, the opinion of 2000 teachers and other external indicators, such as international rankings and ANECA reports, among others. On this basis, a ranking is established which takes into account the number of degrees ranked in the top five positions.

UC3M ranks in 6th position among Spanish universities, despite the fact that only some of its degrees can compete in this ranking, as it doesn’t offer all the degrees that are evaluated and other degrees taught at the University aren’t among the most in-demand in Spain.

UC3M is a public Spanish university that excels in research, teaching and innovation. It is among the best universities in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2023 and among the best universities for the employability of its graduates, according to the latest edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) Global University Employability Ranking. UC3M is the first university in Europe to obtain ACEEU dual accreditation for its contribution and impact on the industrial and social fabric, and it also has other accreditations and quality awards, such as the EUR-ACE seal in the field of engineering or the AACSB accreditation in business and finance programmes.
