University of Deusto has a long tradition of more than 135 years of experience in Higher Education and its own internationally renowned education model, which is underpinned by state-of-the-art technologies and ongoing innovation in its university activities. These are, without a doubt, the hallmarks of its identity. Founded in 1886 by the Society of Jesus, the university focuses on seven main areas of expertise: Business, Law, Psychology and Education, Theology, Social and Human Sciences, Engineering, and Health Sciences.
As a Jesuit university, it is part of its identity and mission to educate men and women as competent professionals and responsible citizens who can place their knowledge and skills at the service of others. The aim is to research and provide useful knowledge in those fields that pose the greatest challenges to individuals and society at large. University of Deusto is a top-ranked university in Spain and has an increasingly significant presence in the global rankings for teaching and high performance. It is located in the center of two cities, Bilbao and San Sebastian, and is also based in Vitoria and Madrid.
The institution promotes entrepreneurship and in-company training through its dual programs and offers work placements for all its students. It counts more than 10,000 students, of whom one out of seven is a grant recipient, and over 4,000 are in continuing and executive education programs. University of Deusto is committed to face-to-face education, whilst not forgetting that online education has already become a mainstream teaching model and is therefore committed to teaching innovation and digitization. In a changing scenario, its students are encouraged to give their best to contribute to social transformation.
