Schiller International University has just moved its Madrid campus to the central Paseo de Recoletos 35, a historic building in the center of Madrid, with 7 floors and more than 3,000 square meters, where students, faculty and staff can experience and develop in optimal conditions Schiller's methodology, focused on experiential learning and digital educational technology.

The American university thus completes the renovation of its European campuses - with the opening last June in Paris of the campus very close to the Arc de Triomphe - and the consolidation of its campus in Heidelberg, which, together with the one in Tampa (Florida), complete the 4 campuses of Schiller International University.

"The opening of this new campus represents a commitment to the city of Madrid as a world hub for international education, and consolidates our vision of immersive and experiential learning, that is, learning that occurs inside and outside the classroom, and in which the cities of our campuses are a very important element. This can only be achieved from urban locations close to decision centers, such as the ones we have in Madrid, Paris, Heidelberg and Tampa" says Marta Muñiz Ferrer, CEO President of Schiller International University.

All the spaces have been designed to encourage collaborative work, creativity and sociability among students, as well as being equipped with advanced digital educational technologies, so that they can work online with students from other Schiller campuses in Europe and the United States, and with companies from all over the world. The students themselves have been able to participate in the process, helping to make design decisions for common areas or recreational activities, such as the movie theater, the coffee corner or the type of food and drink they wanted in the vending machines.

"Our methodology is based on the American model of higher education, which is much more flexible and hands-on, and employability-oriented. We have an immersive one-subject-a-month system, and all our programs have a very linked approach to the reality of the context and the professional market. We are aware that the way of consuming information has changed, and therefore, the learning process must respond to this in a rigorous and innovative way. We cannot expect students to change their habits, but rather respond to the changing environment with higher education at the forefront of our industry," adds Victoria Bamond, Provost and Global Chief Academic Officer.
