2. Integral vision of the business structure

The Abat Oliba CEU University has been teaching Administration and Business Management for more than three decades. This double degree provides a comprehensive and deep view of the business structure, which is highly appreciated in the current labour market. It combines business, legal and economic subjects.
The double degree in Business Management + Economics and Management (International Business) - Bilingual provides the necessary knowledge for the analysis and research of the factors taking part in the economic processes, using mathematical, statistical and sociological techniques. The students acquire competences in the areas of Commerce, Accounting, Finances, Taxation, Economics, Logistics and Marketing, all in an international field. The study plan of this double degree is focused on four main pillars: the quality of the academic formation, the development of personal and collective competences, the career internationalisation and the work experience and the business leadership.
This double degree teaches future professionals in the fields of business organisation, management and administration, stressing distinguishing aspects which have to be taken into account when making decisions in companies that work in global markets.

3. Double degree

The Universitat Abat Oliba CEU is a pioneer on the methodology that allows to combine two degrees and obtain in 5 years two university degrees.

4. Language

The internationalisation is one of the main characteristics of this double degree, and because of that, a significant part of the subjects are taught completely in English. The objective is to provide a quality training that improves the profile of the graduates, acquiring an important international projection.
We facilitate every student the obtaining of the required English level to take a bilingual degree course by means of a learning agreement with the British Council.

5. 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.

6. Aula Emprende Programme

The UAO CEU bets for the development of the entrepreneur spirit in all the studies of the Business area, by means of several initiatives, such as:

  • Workshop  entrepreneur woman
  • Family business and entrepreneurship meetings
  • Experiential entrepreneurship conferences
  • CEU Emprende Summer Camp

In addition, the Entrepreneurs Club, created by students, promotes other activities, such as the BCN Thinking Challenge, an entrepreneurship marathon with the participation of students from different universities and fields of knowledge, and professionals from different areas, who must solve an "entrepreneurship case" with a social goal.

7. Competences program CEU ePlus

The CEU ePlus competence program 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.

8. 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.

Visits to companies and production centres, either national and international, by means of stages.

9. Research
