Testimonials

"I’ve been fortunate to experience first-hand the way MIUC redefines the traditional learning process inherent to higher education, especially when it comes to the integration of new technologies.

The professors here pay special attention to each student's individual abilities, tailoring their course accordingly. My favourite course is "Making Strategy Work in the 21st Century", as it has enabled me to grasp the concepts of a company’s 'mission', 'vision' and 'strategy' from an organisational point of view.

It's always exciting to study away from home. I am able to explore new avenues of life in terms of culture, language, customs and the traditions of Spain. Studying here broadens my thinking as well as the scope of opportunities ahead of me.

Marbella is gorgeous!"

"Salam, my name is Soraya, I am 20 years old and I live in Marbella. I study Business at MIUC.

So there is something that I really love about my school which is the extracurricular activities. Here at school, it’s super cool because we love the sport, many many different sports like surfing, swimming, basketball, tennis and many more. And thank God the weather is super nice to help us for this kind of activities and also it helps us every day to have a good mood to go to school, to chill out and not be stressed out and also we have this chance to be with many many people from all around the world in class.

So we are going to learn every day from each other. So it’s super super nice."

"Salam Alaykum, my name is Camilia and I study International Business here at Marbella International University.

I have been in different universities around the world and the reason why I chose MIUC is that first of its faculty.

We have professors and doctors holding degrees from one of the best universities in the world: Harvard, for instance. What they do is they take all the knowledge they acquired and they bring it to us on a silver plate. Another reason which is very important nowadays is the multicultural learning environment.

What that means is that we have students from different countries with different nationalities and most of them speak more than three languages and I believe that this multicultural learning environment here in MIUC leads to a great understanding and appreciation of other cultures.

MIUC also offers several foreign languages such as English, Arabic, French, Russian and Chinese. This helps students to think globally in the future. If you ask me I would say that MIUC is one of those universities that know how to define the word International because we have diversity, each student brings a unique culture and value to the university. Welcome to MIUC."
