and because we guarantee you full contact with the professional

workshops closely tied to the professional world, such as the
International Negotiation Workshop, which focuses on the
analysis of the legal and political tools for mediation, arbitration,
conciliation and conflict resolution; the International Cooperation
Project Workshop; or Current-Day Observations.

public administration bodies, advisories and consultancies, the
media or political parties.

sory to carry out a study period abroad during your 4th year.

Our international perspective is a feature of our Bachelor’s Degrees.
The School offers all its degree programs in a bilingual format, where

Of course, this international perspective goes beyond the clas-

countries where our students also have the opportunity to carry out
internships, or have the chance to study for a dual degree in some
of the most prestigious universities in the world. So is it quite usual

Rio de Janeiro, to name but a few.
Erasmus agreements, along with our membership to the Laureate
Network, mean that our students have the best international acade-
mic offer available in Spain.
Our focus on developing an entrepreneurial spirit is yet another
element that is making our young School become a reference in the

Our students will receive the training and tools to develop their
innovative skills: encouraging their entrepreneurial ability from the

We aim to train leaders that are able to create and implement their
own business ideas, whether in the fields of business, law or edu-
cation: professionals that see the road to success through their own
ideas and abilities.
The School accompanies these students in the search for new ideas,
in their development as well as implementation: we train the entre-
preneurs the market is looking for.
