Comillas Pontifical University Exchange Program

The university was founded in 1890 as a private Catholic university in Comillas before moving to Madrid in the 1960s. The Faculty of Law is located on the Alberto Aguilera campus and offers a range of law courses related to international business, human rights and EU law.

About Madrid

Madrid is the capital of Spain and is the center of political, government and financial life. The largest Spanish companies and major multinational corporations have their headquarters in the city, which make it an ideal location to conduct global business. Madrid is a magnet for foreign investment as well as wonderful culture, cuisine and nightlife.
