DEGREE OBJECTIVES
 

The Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management has a twofold objective: on the one hand, to offer our students solid training that is closely linked to the professional activity they will carry out in the future, and on the other, to help them acquire the attitudes and skills necessary to work in a globalized and dynamic world and adapt to the highly competitive and constantly evolving economic sector.

Compulsory company internships and a wide range of additional activities organized by the School (Current Economic and Business Program, Professionals in the Classrooms, Employment Forum, Career Opportunities, visits to companies, participation in different university competitions launched by companies, etc.) enable our students to liaise with professionals in the business world and help guide their future professional development, while they simultaneously complete the degree.

More and more companies are beginning to positively value the international experience of undergraduate students. Therefore, the School encourages and enables students to complete part of their studies in a foreign university through the Erasmus Program or the multiple bilateral agreements that the university has signed with European, American, Asian or Australian universities. The Bilingual Programs with Boston University and the University of Chicago also offer the possibility of completing part of the studies at a highly prestigious university.

Students wishing to do so can also conveniently complement their studies by combining the Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management with another in: Marketing and Commercial Management, Economics, Law, Pharmacy or Engineering and Information Systems.

All in accordance with the criteria of quality, excellence and rigor inherent to CEU and aiming to ensure students actively participate and take on the key role in their own learning process.

WHY CHOOSE THE BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND MANAGEMENT

The Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management offers solid training that is closely linked to the business world in which the graduate will work in the future. The extensive economic knowledge and acquired skills will enable students to develop a comprehensive and detailed perspective and, therefore, work in the different areas of business of private and public companies: purchasing, production, financial, accounting, commercial, human resources, management, etc., both nationally and internationally, in small or large enterprises, and in any sector of the economy, thus creating a pathway to a wide range of professional opportunities.

Students with an entrepreneurial drive will also receive the necessary training to be able to develop and successfully launch their business initiative.

StartinCEU (organized and managed by students in the School) also offers entrepreneurial students the necessary guidance and support to turn their business project into a reality.

The staggering versatility of graduates makes this degree one of the most sought after in the market today.

WHY CHOOSE THE BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND MANAGEMENT

CEU is a prestigious educational institution in Spain with a long-standing and renowned tradition in university education. It is characterized by its constant pursuit of academic excellence and rigor, seeking to develop responsible professionals committed to society. There are numerous reasons to study at CEU, including:

  1. Its highly qualified faculty, with extensive teaching experience (more than 15 years on average), optimum levels of engagement and commitment to their educational responsibility. The permanent teaching staff on the degree are complemented by professionals from different fields of economic activity who provide a more practical and professional approach to learning.

  2. Advanced teaching methodology: Since its origins, and long before the creation of the European Higher Education Area, CEU has been aware of the need to train professionals to a high caliber, with solid economic knowledge and specific attitudes and skills necessary to get ahead in the professional world. With this in mind, it has always strived for innovation in teaching, for the incorporation of information and communication technology into curricula, for the use of a continuous assessment system (which requires the student to work on a day-to-day basis, allowing for gradual and longer-lasting learning) and for practical-oriented training. The small size of the groups without a doubt facilitates the use of active and participatory teaching methods, which ultimately fosters and consolidates our students’ learning.

  3. Small groups that enable thorough monitoring of our students’ learning process, in turn forging a close relationship between professors and students.

  4. The tutorial work has been a distinguishing mark of our university’s identity from day one. From the moment they begin their studies, every student on the degree is assigned a tutor who provides guidance on their stay at the University, thus allowing them to obtain the maximum possible performance from their learning process. In addition, professors have an extensive tutoring timetable to resolve any queries that students may have concerning their subject, as well as to assist and guide them in completing the different assignments, case studies, etc.

  5. The internationalization and internship programs are key learning components at CEU. Aware of economic globalization, the School offers the possibility of studying the degree entirely in English and encourages students to complete part of their studies at a foreign university. The more than eighty Business Administration and Management agreements and the two Bilingual Programs with Boston University and the University of Chicago are clear examples of our commitment to the internationalization of our students. In response to the importance of initial contact with the professional world, the degree includes 12 credits of external internships (curricular) among the compulsory subjects to be taken by students. Nevertheless, students wishing to do so can also complete additional extra-curricular internships during their time at the University, acquiring experience and facilitating their entry into the labor market.

  1. The entry of our students into the labor market. The results of a survey on labor market entry conducted recently indicate that the entry rate of students on our Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management is 95%. 85% of those surveyed believe that their job is closely related to their studies. 95% believe that the completed studies serve them in their jobs. Graduates regard the practical training and knowledge acquired as the strong points of the degree. The Everis Foundation has very recently drawn up a “University-Company Ranking” report with the aim of identifying the top 10 Spanish higher education institutions (both public and private) for different areas of knowledge by quantitatively analyzing the opinions of employers. It is about identifying the balance between what university students learn and what companies demand. The Universidad CEU San Pablo, in fifth place for Business Administration and Management, obtains the best scores in three competences: Honesty and ethical commitment, ability to learn and adapt to change, and orientation to results, the three most important competences for employers.

  2. Extra-curricular activities: the School organizes a wide range of additional activities (Current Economic and Business Program, Professionals in the Classrooms, Employment Forum, Career Opportunities, job-searching techniques, visits to companies, participation in different university competitions launched by companies, etc.) that enable our students to liaise with professionals in the business world and help guide their future professional development, while they simultaneously complete the degree.

  3. Wide range of academic options: students can study the Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management in Spanish and/or English, and anyone wishing to do so can complement their studies by taking part in our Bilingual Programs with Boston University and the University of Chicago, simultaneously completing the degree with any of the following: Marketing and Commercial Management, Economics, Law, Pharmacy or Engineering and Information Systems, as well as achieving greater specialization in a specific area, completing one of the postgraduate programs at the University.

  4. Bloomberg: the School has a classroom equipped with 8 Bloomberg terminals, one of the main economic and financial information applications worldwide, used by operators and professional analysts of financial markets, making it an essential tool for all students who wish to work in the financial field in the future. Advanced knowledge of the software undoubtedly adds great value to our students’ résumés.

  5. StartinCEU: a project that is organized and managed by the students in the School, seeks to encourage entrepreneurship and business development in students whilst they complete their university degree. It is ultimately a place to strengthen relations between entrepreneurs and students, providing them with insight into the world of business, thanks to the participation of a large number of collaborating companies, and offering them the training and advice necessary to launch their business initiative.

  6. Program of Excellence: Through its commitment to the fostering and development of talent, the University offers high-achieving students more specialized and innovative training that allows them to develop the skills and abilities most in demand within the world of work.
