Why study at UAO CEU?

1. Specialist education with a professional focus to set yourself apart from the rest

Economic Criminal Law is studied nationally and internationally as a specialisation within criminal law, which is not limited to the study of crimes considered financial, but also extends to aspects of methodology: the scope of economic criminal law; its conceptual foundation; the techniques and theory involved in economic criminal law; the extent to which criminal sanctions extend to acts that involve the infringement of essential rules in economic life; and in particular the responsibility of companies with respect to the market and the administrations, and the responsibility of those who have duties of loyalty with respect to the interests of a company.  

In order to provide the training needed by professionals in this field, Abat Oliba CEU University has created this comprehensive, practical programme taught by legal experts in the field (judges, prosecutors, lawyers and university professors).

When our criminal law is configured as a law of last resort, the need for mechanisms in organisations to help adjust their procedures and activities to the applicable law (both internal and external) means compliance is a useful tool in avoiding sanctions, both administrative and criminal, and a necessary element in creating the ethical business culture that major international organisations demand from business entities.

As such, the programme offers a comprehensive approach to compliance, and the main objective is to provide students with the mechanisms they need to understand and implement regulatory compliance, in the broadest sense, but with a special emphasis on criminal and corporate compliance.

2. Teaching staff

Teaching staff of prestigious professionals with proven teaching and professional experience.

3. Employability

The average employment rate for those who have completed postgraduate studies at CEU is 95.8% (AQU 2020 Survey).

4. Information resources

The Library Service is designed to support study and research with the primary objective of meeting students’ educational and scientific needs. It has ample opening hours, even on weekends, with the best IT facilities.

UAO CEU also offers a large digital repository containing open-access publications derived from the teaching, research and institutional activities carried out by the university’s teaching staff, students and alumni.
