Together, our students establish a network of social relationships that will be of fundamental importance in their futures, while finding friendly and professional support that helps them to acquire knowledge through their studies. Those enrolled in our institution are given the opportunity to assume greater responsibility in life, and greater autonomy — which will ultimately enable them to act as leaders in a changing world that is constantly becoming more international and multicultural. We are more interconnected than ever before, and there is no turning back.
I would like to invite all potential students, and everyone else with interest in CIS to a personal exchange either here at our Madrid campus, or via video conferencing in order to supply additional information about the various degree programs offered at our school.
María Díaz de la Cebosa, President
The University Housing Department is responsible for searching for and monitoring our international as well as Spanish students’ accommodations. CIS is located in a pleasant area of Madrid, in the elegant Salamanca district. Our campus is centrally located with easy access to excellent and modern public transportation. The school provides students with extracurricular activities. Cultural excursions as well as sports are available during the academic year (attendance at film screenings, theater, soccer games, paddle, which is a sport similar to tennis that is typically not played in the US in spite of being very fun, ski trips, exhibitions, charity events, etc …) Read more
“Better People for a Better World”
The Coaching Institute of Spain provides students with the guidance, structure, and feedback they need to be more successful in school and in life. Each student is assigned to a coach, who helps the student stay focused on priorities and achieve his or her full potential.
In weekly meetings, the student works together with his or her coach to identify the student’s goals, create action plans to help the student achieve them, track the student’s progression toward his or her goals, and keep the student motivated.
Each week, students and coaches also review the student’s progress, ensuring the student keeps moving forward on the pathway to success.
Many arrived here in Madrid just yesterday to be greeted and welcomed by members of the CIS Housing Department at the airport. Every one of our new international students who opted for a “home stay” while here in Spain were picked up at our campus by the family that they were assigned based on personal profile and necessities. Living with a Spanish family allows students to participate in the culture and learn Spanish more quickly while surrounded by Spanish natives at home in their new, adoptive country.
The CIS Orientation that takes place prior to the official start of the semester is truly the most complete way to expose students to our philosophy. Our Study Abroad Department discusses Madrid as a city, for example ideal restaurants to enjoy traditional Spanish cuisine — while, of course, avoiding the typically overpriced tourist traps — which are also frequently inferior in terms of quality. Museums, public transportation, places of interest, as well as trips that students have already signed up for, and have already been organized for them all are covered during the orientation sessions. The concept is actually quite simple. We want our students to have a pleasant stay in our great city, yet at the same time, to get the most out of their time here with us in Madrid.
Welcome to CIS!
Travel, look, feel, dream… Walk, think and understand. We offer the possibility to experience, and truly know the Camino de Santiago during the month of May. The timeless excursion lasts 11 days, and goes from Madrid to Roncesvalles. We are sure to appreciate every artistic, historical, and architectural point of interest on the road, until our arrival in the spiritual capital of Spain, Santiago de Compostela. The course can be done either to earn credit toward your undergraduate degree, or a great excuse just to get away and travel through one of the most wonderful and inspirational places on the planet.
