1. Professionalisation

The Official Master’s Degree in Administrative Management is provided by Abat Oliba CEU University and the Catalan Higher Institute of Administrative Management (ISGAC), a non-profit organisation established by the Official College of Administrative Managers of Catalonia. The course provides an official postgraduate education that prepares students for professional administrative management practice, without having to take the public entry exams to the profession, as it adapts content to the legal requirements.

The Council of the Official Administrative Managers Association of Catalonia exempts graduates of this master's from the state professional entry test and provides immediate accreditation upon finishing the course.

This master's looks at the technical demands of new information technologies, as well as the new requirements of administrative management consultancy, especially for businesses. It also provides knowledge of economics, finance and accounting that is not required to enter the profession, as they are fundamentally legal-focused.

2. Experience

We have been training lawyers since 1973. We are the most experienced private university for teaching law in Catalonia.

3. Methodology

The Master's is taught in a blended-learning format, making it easy to create a work/study balance. Its methodology is based on workshops, discussion groups and practical case resolution, which is necessary for the profession.

4. Professional development
