Camilo José Cela University (UCJC) is a private, plural, humane and independent university, founded in the year 2000, with two campuses in Madrid (in the Villafranca del Castillo residential estate and on Almagro street, in the heart of the city).
In addition, it promotes entrepreneurship and innovation, technology and digitization, social impact and wellbeing as its four strategic axes.
Entrepreneurship and innovation, through our courses such as the Bachelor's in Entrepreneurship and accelerators such as SEKLAB – Edtech Accelerator and the UCJC Impact Lab.
Technology and digitization to improve adaptation processes in the face of the digital transformation of today's society.
Social impact because we play a crucial role in achieving the SDGs by contributing to and reinforcing the interests of students and the social impact that their present and future actions should have.
Wellbeing to ensure personal balance, both physical and emotional, which may have a direct impact on the processes of acquiring content and skills.
Aware that the world is interdependent, complex and changing, UCJC offers up-to-date and innovative education and training in every field of work specialisation. The goal is for students to acquire an interdisciplinary preparation and a set of transversal skills that complement their academic and professional training. These skills are tackled in a set of areas that range from the personal to the social sphere, promoting a holistic transformation process through learning. These skills are taught in The Hive (La Colmena) using challenge-based learning defined around our strategic axes: entrepreneurship, digitization, social impact and wellbeing.
