BA - Bachelor of Arts in International Relations

The  Bachelor of Arts in International Relations is a seven-semester, three-year program (240 ECTS) that combines a global international relations outlook with the practical skills of business thinking. As corporations expand and blur national boundaries, they operate in a more complex landscape. This specialization provides a solid knowledge of the global economic environment recognizing politics, cross-cultural values and ethics as key components. Students who complete this program are trained to apply a global mindset to conflict management and resolution while considering growth and the bottom line.

The first year comprises core courses to provide students with fundamental knowledge of the business world. Specialized subjects are introduced in semesters three to five. In the sixth and seventh semesters, students focus solely on business management modules to equip them with key managerial concepts, theories and the tools necessary to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving world.

Students who successfully complete this program and wish to further their knowledge in their specialization may opt to take an additional eighth semester and earn a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) awarded by Universidad Católica de Murcia (UCAM), Spain (título propio).

Students may also fast track their degree by taking summer semesters.
