5 years (324 credits)

The bachelor's degree in Business Administration is accredited by AACSB.



The Dual Bachelor’s Degree in International Studies and Business Administration combines the most competitive education in business management and administration and multidisciplinary studies. This multidisciplinary approach inspires International Studies degrees at the most prestigious universities in the world. The program is taught entirely in English.

This degree program creates professionals capable of understanding and analyzing the complex ever-changing world of today. It provides students with the knowledge and practical abilities necessary to understand and research contemporary global issues and assess possible future scenarios. It also equips them with skills that can be applied to other fields and situations, while fostering their autonomy and their analytical and communication skills. 

These studies include all the content that is taught in both degree programs separately. At the end of the program, students will receive two degrees, one in International Studies and another in Business Administration, with the professional advantages that this entails.

    Students should have a solid education in history, geography, mathematics, economics and environmental sciences. Additionally, although there is no entrance exam, we strongly recommend a B2 (MCERL) level of English, given that all the courses are taught exclusively in English.

    We also appreciate students with initiative, flexibility, teamwork and work organization skills, responsibility and curiosity to apply acquired knowledge to practice. Students should also have sensitivity towards the legal, economic, political and social problems of the world today, as well as passion for understanding and discussing these challenges from a critical and global perspective, through the use of different qualitative and quantitative tools.
