Madrid, Spain
Comillas is a church university which has been directed for more than a century by the Compañia de Jesús [Society of Jesus] which is the private institution which has the highest number of universities in the world. When designing our university mission we have always succeeded in combining the education experience provided by our tradition with the continuous updating that social changes demand. We offer postgraduate programmes in the following knowledge area: Education, Business, Social and Humanistic, Law, Health Sciences, Technology and Theology and Canon Law.


Our University is one of the oldest private universities in Spain and dates back to 1890, when it was founded in Comillas (Santander) and entrusted to the Jesuit Order. It currently has an approximate enrollment of 10,000 students and offers a wide variety of studies. Not only do we educate our students to meet the highest professional standards, but we also emphasize humanities and ethics as an essential component of their personal development. We can truly say that a University education with us prepares students to meet the greatest personal and professional challenges. According to an article in Fortune magazine, published in 2008, we were ranked 27th in the world, and consider that this is just a starting point for the future.
