- La Comercial, which has been part of the Bilbao campus since 1916
- ESTE, founded in 1956 at the San Sebastian campus
Deusto Business School is distinct in its coherence with centuries-old tradition and prestige while simultaneously embracing the major trends that are currently transforming the world of business.
An International Experience
Deusto Business School maintains important agreements and strategic alliances with elite business schools and universities around the world. A number of post-graduate programmes are taught jointly or include intensive modules that are conducted at renowned centres abroad. Deusto Business School is also pleased to host international students that come from countries all over the world every year.
The University of Deusto in Bilbao has a privileged location in the heart of Bilbao, opposite the Guggenheim Museum on the right bank of the Nervion River. La Comercial, a historic building with modern renovations, houses Deusto Business School. The university's library is found just crossing the Nervion River and offers extensive individual and group study spaces. On campus, students will also find several dining areas and cafeterias, as well as a recently-renovated fitness and wellness center "DeustoFit," and a variety of common spaces.
Bilbao is a thriving cosmopolitan city open to Europe, awarded the title of Best European City 2018. It has undergone large scale environmental and urban renewal since the 1990s when the Guggenheim Museum opened as its flagship building. After many years as an industrial hub, the symbols of the new city are now business, leisure and culture. The nearby coastal areas are ideal for water sports such as surfing, windsurfing, diving and sailing, and nearby mountain ranges offer hiking excursions in a variety of experience levels.
San Sebastián Campus
Named European Capital of Culture in 2016, San Sebastián features stunning landscapes, the power of the Cantabrian Sea, beautiful beaches, and a breathtaking variety of traditional, romantic and modern architecture.
Deusto Business School's San Sebastián campus is situated in the centre of the city along the Paseo de Mundaiz, which runs alongside the river Urumea. Deusto Business School courses and activities take place in the Edificio Aranzadi, the Edificio Altuna-Aulario and the Edificio Garate-Innogunea.
