Marbella International University Centre

Marbella International University Centre (MIUC) is international university in its mind-set and teaching methods so as to enable Faculty staff and students, who are of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, to live, learn and explore together, building a distinct community of forward thinking professionals and knowledge creators.



The Marbella International University Centre started up its project after the approval of the adjudication of the public contest convened by the Council of Marbella in November 2012.


We offer Bologna accredited BA and MA programmes with a strong focus on global aspects of knowledge, skills and competences tailored for the modern age. All our degree programmes are taught in English, to ensure the students’ future success in the increasingly competitive international job market.

Our programmes are taught by successful academics and industry professionals who divide their time between vigorous research and innovative business practice. A modern, tech-savvy approach in class is complemented by specialised workshops run by senior business leaders and influential political actors.


The balance between expert professors and highly qualified professionals that enrich the theoretical and practical student education is addressing the professional sector as well, at a global level through the development of competences, aptitudes and real-life situations within top-end facilities that use state-of-the-art technologies.
