Why study at the UAO CEU?

1. Training programmes

The degree in Economics and Management offers a high quality and comprehensive formation in matters of economic, business and legal subjects, which allows the students to develop competences in several professional fields.

This degree adds, from the second term of the third year, three different itineraries* which correspond to three different specialisations that distinguish the student's academic curriculum according to his future expectancies:

  • International Business
  • Property Management
  • Management of Social and Solidarity Businesses

*The itineraries are enabled if at least 10 students are enrolled.

2. Economic, business and law training

This degree is intended for people who are interested in acquiring general solid competences in the economic, business and legal fields, as well as competences that belong to specific fields which enable their proper integration into the management of international, real estate or social and solidarity companies.
The study plan of the degree in Economics and Management is structured in five main pillars: quality academic formation, development of personal and collective competences, curriculum internationalisation, work experience, and business initiative.

3. Internationalisation

In the United States by means of the programmes “International Political Economy” with the University of Chicago and the “International Business Certificate Program” with the University of Boston. The students receive an international training in English, linked to their official degree studies, and may carry out an additional international mobility stay.
We offer the possibility to carry out international stays or internships in the best universities of Europe, America and Oceania.

4. Entrepreneurship

The UAO CEU commitment to the entrepreneurship spirit in all the studies it offers can be seen in the initiatives promoted by the Entrepreneurs Club, created by the students themselves. Among its activities, the organisation of the BCN Thinking Challenge stands out. It is an entrepreneurship marathon with the participation of students of different universities and specialities, and with professionals from different fields that must solve an entrepreneurship case with a social goal.

Moreover, the university strengthens its bet for entrepreneurship by means of different activities:

  • Entrepreneurship and management skills workshops
  • Family business conferences
  • Forum of Economic Debate
5. Competences program CEU ePlus

It is incorporated in every degree since the very first year, in order to work on the specific most demanded competences in the labour market for every degree. In addition, the students always have at their disposal the possibility to make an individual coaching procedure.

6. Methodology

Teaching model based on the practical and individualised training that allows to link the  theoretical knowledge to professional practice, by means of real internships, workshops and practical seminars.

It includes visits to companies and production centres, either national and international, by means of stages.

7. Research

Chair of Solidarity Economy and Chair of Family Business and Business Creation.
