First English-speaking University now in Marbella

Marbella — For decades, Marbella has been an international hub for both business and pleasure. Marbella’s unique demographics and smart-casual atmosphere have made it a center for the entrepreneurial spirit that is well established and growing in Spain.

Because of its international reputation and appeal, Marbella attracts millions of tourists and hundreds of thousands of English-speakers of different nationalities who decide to make Marbella their permanent home, including many celebrities. They come here for night life, excitement, and leisure, but many also come seeking opportunities for business and learning. In the past 50 years, Marbella has seen countless hotels, golf courses, developments, international schools, as well as other businesses set up, and now the launch of an English-speaking University.

Marbella University is the first and only English-speaking University in the South of Spain. With a state-of-the art educational program based on the most advanced knowledge and didactics, it will offer 3-year Bachelor degrees as well as a 1-year diploma program. The diploma program provides students with general understanding of people, human life, business, and society through a “stimulating, mind-opening curriculum,” says the University spokesperson. The diploma program also allows students to start Marbella University’s Bachelor programs, in the case that they don’t already have an IB, A-level, or equivalent diploma. In addition, Marbella University’s Bachelor programs include areas of study such as Business Administration, Communication & Public Relations, Tourism, Journalism, and Psychology. The curriculum meets the highest educational standards, and fits the needs and desires of Spain’s up-and-coming professionals. All Marbella University Bachelor programs are in line with the Treaty of Bologna’s educational requirements and curriculum standards.

In Marbella, people enjoy a unique quality of life, safety, and international appeal. The Costa del Sol is virtually free of pollution, has extremely low rates of crime, and is in close proximity to rich cultural cities like Granada, Seville and Cadiz. All these factors and more make Marbella the perfect place to study for those who want a true international experience that is as fulfilling as it is enlightening.
