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.
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.
