UC3M's Master's Degree in Management is among the best in the world


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is ranked 35th in the world among the best institutions in the world to specialise in business management and administration, according to a ranking published by the British newspaper Financial Times, which analyses the 100 best master's degrees in Management. UC3M is the only Spanish public institution to appear in this ranking.

Ranking Financial Times

UC3M’s Master’s Degree in Management appears in this ranking along with other degrees offered by four Spanish private business schools: Esade Business School, Iese Business School, IE Business School and Eada Business School Barcelona. The top three in the world are: HEC Paris, University of St Gallen and London Business School.

This ranking of master's degrees in Management assesses, among other aspects, the average salary of graduates three years after completing the degree programme, career progression, value for money of the master's degree, employability of graduates and percentage of international teachers and students, among other parameters.

UC3M’s Master's Degree in Management, taught at UC3M's Madrid-Puerta de Toledo Campus, is a one-year programme designed to provide business administration skills and knowledge to young graduates with diverse backgrounds and limited management experience. "The Master's Degree in Management has been ranked 35th out of the top 100 programmes worldwide, but it is worth noting that this degree achieves even better positions in some key categories analysed in the ranking. For example, for the criterion 'student career progression', our programme ranks tenth worldwide, while in the category of 'percentage salary increase' it ranks eighth," says the director of the master's degree programme, Eduardo Melero, Associate Professor of Management in UC3M's Business Economics Department.

It also has a leading position with its own degree programmes

A degree from UC3M's School of Continuing Education has also achieved a very prominent position in this Financial Times ranking. Specifically, the UC3M-ESCP Master’s Degree in Management is ranked 4th worldwide. Focused at a European level, this degree offers the opportunity to study in up to four countries for two years, with options ranging from ESCP Europe's six European campuses to 70 partners around the world. "Those who study this Master's degree have the opportunity to project themselves into the role of a manager and gain an overview of the challenges faced by international companies and institutions. In this sense, the internships that are carried out in various companies are key to professional network development and accessing the best employment options in the future," says the co-director of the master's degree, Lluís Santamaría, Associate Professor of Accounting in UC3M's Business Economics Department.

UC3M is a Spanish public university that excels in research, teaching and innovation. It is among the best universities in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2024 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.
