Madrid, Spain: Six faculty from the Metropolitan College (MET) Department of Administrative Sciences travel to Madrid annually to lead three intensive business modules on campus at the Universidad CEU San Pablo. Part of a firmly established collaboration between the Administrative Sciences department, MET International, and CEU, the modules are attended by CEU business and advertising students who then travel to Boston University to complete MET courses in management, marketing, advertising, and finance. After successfully completing the three modules in Madrid and the full semester at BU, the CEU students receive an International Business Certificate (IBC) from MET.
