Introduction

The double degree pathway in Law and Business Administration and Management is especially designed for students seeking thorough training in law and business that qualifies them to work in senior positions.

The double degree pathway in Law and Business Administration and Management produces professionals capable of successfully performing management, advisory, and assessment tasks at companies, whether at the global level within the organization or in any of its functional areas: production, human resources, finance, marketing, investment, administration, or accounting. At the same time, it provides basic legal training that includes both theoretical knowledge of the legal system and the methodological tools needed to interpret and apply the norms that make it up. This double degree enables students to work as both lawyers and economists, as well as auditors, corporate consultants, government economists and tax inspectors. It also prepares them to take on management and administrative roles at government agencies and international institutions.

Placements in a company or another type of organization are an integral part of university studies, providing first-hand experience of working methodologies in students' chosen professional fields. They offer invaluable practical experience for the transition into work after graduation.

Placements are supervised by tutors and subject to assessment. They are therefore included in the academic record.  There is also an option to complete non-curricular placements of up to 500 hours, which can be extended to 900 hours. For both curricular and non-curricular placements, an educational cooperation agreement is signed between the UB and the company, institution or other organization at which the placement will be carried out.
