These new programs are PR & Communication which will replace the BBA in Communication, finance, digital business, and fashion & luxury business management making that seven BBA programs in total.
What does this mean for students?
One of our major accreditations achieved over the 2016-2017 academic year was becoming the only higher education institution in Spain accredited by Microsoft as a leader in digital education, delivering students the most state-of-the-art learning experience from the start.
What this means for students studying for their BBA is that all students will attend training through the Microsoft Imagine Academy and can earn two professional designations that will enhance their credentials on top of their degree. This certification gives BBA graduates a huge advantage both academically and professionally.
