Studying at the CEU UCH means choosing a University which is different both in the ‘what’ and the ‘how’. We offer a combination of experience and innovation. It is about being truly international and yet with strong local roots. In short, we can offer you everything you need to be whatever you want to be.

Spanish Pathway to Business management

Internationalization and innovation is at the very heart of our study program

What makes us different?

1. A bilingual education

If you are interested in being taught in both English and Spanish in order to enrich your future professional profile, we offer the possibility of taking the first year in English and then continue teaching in Spanish for the rest of the degree. Our itinerary also adapts to every need:

  • For non-native Spanish students: during the first year all subjects are taught in English, except for 18 ECTS (which will be taken the following year) where instead we offer the student a module to support their Spanish language learning, which will help them adapt to teaching in Spanish later on in their degree.
  • For native Spanish students: during the first year all subjects are taken in English, except 18 ECTS that are taught in Spanish.

2. Our experience and our record

We believe that the best way to understand the business world and educate students in 21st century business management is to use the case method. We believe in providing a solid theoretical grounding alongside special activities which can help our students to begin building their careers at a very early stage. We believe in it - and we do it. That is why you will see the reality of business from the start, taking a practical approach, and you will have the chance to learn from the best. It is certainly a different way of understanding what education should be – but then we have a strong record in being different.

3. Cutting-edge facilities

The use of the case method means that the environment in which learning takes place has to be different. So, you will not just be learning in the lecture hall - you will also have to show your mettle during company visits and when you present projects in front of an audience of company directors. Other eye-catching and forward-looking learning spaces include the Hub 101 (the only place on campus where you cannot speak in your native language) and the Bloomberg Room, in which students can see real-time movement in the financial markets. All of this takes place in one building.

In fact, it is highly likely that, for some of the practical projects that you will be involved in, you will need to work in conjunction with students on communication degrees. You might well work at some stage in our television or photography studios. We have everything you need to help you take full advantage of your business instincts and take on the world. Throughout your time as an undergraduate, you can take part in a range of business competitions and projects.

4. A real-world focus

The world has changed and, with it, the way future professionals must be educated has also changed. That is why you will receive an education which is practical and applicable to the real world from day one, with a range of additional programs and certificates which will prepare you to kick-start your career in the best way possible when you graduate. At the heart of this are internationalization, innovation and creativity in the strategic management of resources – you will learn about all of this from the first year, when you will be in contact with leading professionals.

  • Visiting lecturers - key players at major organizations - will share their experiences with you.
  • Visits to companies and other training activities to enable you to gain first-hand knowledge of different industries.
  • Support and assistance for your business initiatives, via CEU Emprende.
  • Harvard Business Publishing® has authorized the use of its docs and study cases for this Degree

5. The international dimension

Every day at CEU UCH you will be surrounded by students from more than 70 countries. In the globalized world we live in, that is a big advantage for all our students - but particularly for those whose future is in business management. You can build relationships and synergies with people from across the world and broaden your horizons. Our study program also includes activities which will improve your English skills - very useful if you want to do an international placement or practical training abroad, helping you to gain a global vision of business. And if you are looking for a way to perfect your international profile, remember that as a CEU student you can access the language training activities offered by the University's Languages Service.

6. Dual degrees from a University specializing in them

If you love the business management world, but you are also aware of how useful it could be for you to receive training in another area like law or marketing, there is no need to have to choose between them. The CEU Cardenal Herrera University has always been at the forefront of offering students opportunities such as dual degrees. We specialize in such programs and we make it easy for you: we arrange compatible timetables, there is no need to travel to different locations and, of course, you will not have to pay double the price. Check out the information below on dual degrees - our speciality.

Final Year Project

The TFG involves students completing their own original research projects that include and expand upon on topics studied on the course and require students to use the skills and abilities they have acquired throughout their degree. The aim of the dissertation is to teach students how to look for, structure, organise and evaluate relevant information in order to help them develop their own opinions, including how to approach topics with a social, scientific, technological or ethical nature, and how to develop their own thoughts, criticisms and logical and creative judgments.

With the support of


The SICUE (Sistema de Intercambio entre Centros Universitarios Españoles) Program is an exchange scheme between Spanish universities rather than a grant program per se, which is organized by the Spanish university rectors' association, the Conferencia de Rectores de las Universidades Españolas (CRUE) on behalf the Spanish Ministry of Education.

This exchange scheme between Spanish universities enables university students to undertake part of their studies at another Spanish university, in a manner which is guaranteed to be both suited to their degree and recognised by their home university. The SICUE program has no specific funding.

This program enables students to experience different learning environments, including practical training, along with the different social and cultural contexts of the different regions of Spain.

When can I apply?

Application period: OPEN.

Those students who fulfil the SICUE criteria and wish to take part in this mobility program must submit the relevant application form before the closing date (10th March 2017).


Students applying for a place on an exchange scheme with universities with which the CEU UCH has bilateral agreements must fulfil the following requirement:

Undergraduates: applicants must have acquired at least 45 credits and be enrolled on at least 30 more.

Applicants must fulfil this credit requirement on 30th September 2016, with the previous academic year being that which is considered for the SICUE mobility application.

  • Master's and PhD programs do not form part of the SICUE mobility program.
  • Periods at host universities typically consist of half an academic year (3, 4, 5 or 6 months, depending on the particular arrangements of the University in question) or a complete academic year.
  • A stay of an academic year requires a commitment to undertake a minimum of 45 credits and half an academic year a minimum of 24 credits.
  • Courses current classed as failed (suspenso): unless the regulations of the university of origin state otherwise, students may include a maximum of one failed course in the learning agreement, if this is authorized by the academic coordinator.
  • Once the student has arrived at the host university, he/she must send the certificate of arrival to their university of origin.

For economic purposes, such students are still affiliated to the CEU Cardenal Herrera University: in other words, they must enrol at the CEU Cardenal Herrera University when the enrolment period opens and continue to pay the corresponding fees to the University – no payments need be made at the host university. The SICUE program has no specific funding of its own.

Students must enrol at the CEU Cardenal Herrera University when the enrolment period opens, even if they are to participate in an exchange scheme at another university.

Students must indicate their order of preference for their proposed destinations (up to a maximum of three).

PLEASE NOTE: The host universities and order of preference selected cannot be changed once the application period has closed, nor will any appeal against this be accepted.

The relevant documents must be submitted in hard copy to:
