Our Business School has a rich history and it’s the Centre within the University of Extremadura that has grown the most, not only quantitatively but also with regards to the number of students. Our Centre has increased its figures from 1,255 students in 1991, to 3,574 students this academic year. This last figure represents 15% of all the students in our University.
Students can choose from three different first Degree programs, designed according to the new structures for the university education under the will of the European States, to create a single European Higher Education Space. This Space signifies the convergence under the field of education within Europe.
Furthermore, our Centre offers three double-first Degree programs and four post-graduate qualifications (Master’s Degrees).
In addition, a new project has begun in which some subjects are being lectured in English. The purpose of this project is not only lecturing various subjects within the current Degree programs through the medium of English, but also to create an Administration and Business Management Degree that would be taught exclusively in English.
– Degree in Administration and Business Management: Is meant for those whose job prospects are geared towards self-employment, starting up their own businesses, or fulfilling a medium/high management position in the public or private sector, where taking business decisions would be essential.
– Degree in Economics:
Trains professionals that will be capable of managing the available resources and ensuring their best use and correct distribution, administration and management inside the enterprises, as well as raising the standards of living, progress and social welfare.
This Degree not only provides a technical background, but also boosts team work and communication skills.
– Degree in Labour Relations and Manpower (Labour Sciences): Since it’s launch, this Degree has been defined by the different perspectives and analysis from which it studies the labour situation. This is shown by the wide range of knowledge areas involved in this degree, ranging from legal and economic areas to areas of enterprise, psychology, sociology, history, …
Double-first Degrees allow students to obtain two first Degrees at the same time. Students must study many subjects in each academic year. In these cases, the curriculum lasts for 5 years instead of 4 like in a single first degree.
Once the students have finished a double-first degree, he/she obtains two diplomas, wherein the two Degrees in the double-first Degree are certified.
In general, First Degrees have 10 subjects per year, while double-first Degrees have 10 subjects during the first academic year but 12 subjects during the other 4 years.
– Administration and Business Management – Law:
As well as proficiency in Administration and Business Management skills, this double-first Degree provides students with a juridical profile. Students acquire basic skills about Public and Private Law. As professionals, they will be capable of performing legal advice tasks in private companies. They can also concur to different competitions (notary, registry offices, judicature, prosecution, county clerks, administrative attorneys, …).
This Degree also allows students to freely exercise a liberal profession (law, procures, private administrative agencies, …) as well as giving them basic knowledge in research and methodology inside the legal sphere.
