13 UC3M degrees among the best in Spain

50 Degrees Ranking 2022 by El Mundo newspaper


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) appears with 13 of its degrees in 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.

13 grados de la UC3M, entre los mejores de España

Three degrees from UC3M are ranked among the best of Spain: the degree in Business Administration and Management, the degree in Finance and Accounting and the dual degree in Business Administration and Management and Law.

On the other hand, four of the University’s degrees rank second nationally: Law, Economics, International Relations and Labour Relations.

The degrees in Audiovisual Communication and Electrical Engineering are in third place; Mechanical Engineering and Telecommunications Technology Engineering are fourth; and Computer Engineering and Industrial Technologies are in fifth place.

The twentieth edition of this ranking is the result of the analysis of 25 selection criteria, the opinion of more than 3000 teachers (which accounts for 40% of the final evaluation) and other indicators, such as university demand, human and physical resources, the curriculum, the graduation rate, the production of PhDs, research projects, the number of languages offered and international ranking results, 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 5th 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 2022 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.
