Program Description:

Cordoba is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Córdoba. An Iberian and Roman city in ancient times, in the Middle Ages it became the capital of an Islamic caliphate. The old town contains numerous architectural reminders of when Corduba was the capital of Hispania Ulterior during the Roman Republic and capital of Hispania Baetica during the Roman Empire; and when Qur?ubah was the capital of the Islamic Caliphate of Córdoba, including most of the Iberian Peninsula.

It has been estimated that in the 10th century Córdoba was the most populous city in the world, and under the rule of Caliph Al Hakam II it had also become a center for education under its Islamic rulers. Al Hakam II opened many libraries on top of the many medical schools and Universities which existed at this time. Such Universities contributed towards developments in mathematics and astronomy. During these centuries Córdoba had become the intellectual center of Europe and was also noted for its predominantly Muslim society that was tolerant toward its Christian and Jewish minorities. Today it is a moderately-sized modern city; its population in 2011 was 330,033.


The Universidad Loyola Andalucía, created by the Society of Jesus, is the first private Andalusian university, whose mission, faithful to the best Jesuit university tradition, is to train men and women for others, the best people “for” the world. The Universidad Loyola Andalucía is based in Córdoba and Sevilla.

The same as ESADE (1958, Barcelona) and ICADE (1961, Madrid), the Universidad Loyola Andalucía, promoted by ETEA, the former Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences of the Universidad de Córdoba, followed DEUSTO’s University steps (1916, Bilbao) in order to expand Business and Administration Sciences studies all over Spain.
Today the Universidad Loyola Andalucía offers a wide range of courses in business and economics through our Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and the official Master’s Degree in Research Methods in Economics and Business Sciences. However, starting in September 2013, new degrees will also be offered in Córdoba in the following areas: law, communication and social work. Besides, our Business School, Loyola Leadership School, offers a wide selection of master’s degrees, executive education programs and in house programs focused on a better education, both personal and professional, for people and companies.


Students will need to have above the intermediate level of Spanish to participate in this program.

Students can see the photos of the flats, seek for information regarding location, price and description of the flats and book a reservation prior to their arrival.


Loyola 360º, is a group of ETEA-Loyola students who collaborate with the International Office in the integration of exchange students.
