Following on the success of the GBD London program, launched in September 2014, Université Paris-Dauphine is expanding its international programs. GBD Madrid will open the 1st year of its Bachelor's in Economics and Management in September 2016.
A bridge between Europe and the Ibero-American world
GBD Madrid was designed as an academic cross-cultural program between Europe and the Ibero-American world. It will give Bachelor's students with high academic standing and an excellent command of Spanish the opportunity to do the first two years of their Bachelor's degree in Economics and Management in Spain.
The program, under the aegis of Université Paris-Dauphine, will be hosted by the International School of the prestigious Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (U3CM) and benefit from the university's faculty and infrastructure.

A bilingual program
GBD Madrid curriculum is similar to the 1st and 2nd year Dauphine Paris Bachelor's program in Economics and Management. Curriculum includes all of the traditional core disciplines: Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Public Law, Private Law, introduction to management, sociology and accounting, with accommodations and additions made to take into account Spanish and Iberian specificities. Cultural and professional electives will be added to the curriculum over the next two years.
Classes are small and taught in both Spanish and English, by professors from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid as well as faculty from other Spanish universities. GBD students can access all of the activities available at U3CM, providing GBD London students with an immersive Spanish academic, linguistic and social experience.
GBD Madrid is open to students from Lycée Français de l'étranger (LFE) and international schools across the globe and to students from French high schools with an excellent command of written and spoken Spanish and English.
GBD Madrid will welcome its initial cohort of 30 first-year students in September 2016.
Applicants for admission to GBD Madrid for the 2016-2017 academic year should submit their applications via Dauphine's Boléro on-line system (bolero.dauphine.fr) from February 8th through April 4th 2016. An admissions calendar for students from the Southern hemisphere is currently under consideration.
