Bachelor in Business Administration
No university degree by itself can teach someone to be a competent entrepreneur or executive. That comes with experience, and then with further training. What our programme offers you is the ability to familiarize yourself with and understand the most relevant aspects of business management and decision-making, all while still being a full-time student.
Specialization in business administration
The purpose of this specialization is to train students who want to orient their careers towards this professional field, joining a company with pre-existing specific knowledge, and professional certifications adapted to international standards.
We offer you a multi-disciplinary training, based on a scorecard, oriented towards processes and projects, giving you analytical skills capable of collecting data and transforming it into information that supports your decisions and valuations.
The different aspects that you will find in this specialization are:
- Its teaching staff, selected from working professionals in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain management;
- That it is designed following the ELAQF Qualification Standards for Logistics Competence framework, aligned with the European Qualification Framework;
- That it offers access to several market-standard degrees through agreements with the biggest professional associations, including the Centro Español de Logística (CEL), the the Asociación de Responsables de Compras y Existencias (AERCE) representatives in Spain of the European Logistics Association, and the Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) respectively.
Start your university degree with a specialization in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain management which the Public Employment Service (Servicio Público de Empleo Estatal, SEPE) says is a field “lacking in professionalism, knowledge, and experience from the experts and those in charge of the different aspects of logistics”, underlining that “being a sector with great and growing innovation, it appears to have a shortage of important training, especially in the cases of directorial and expert positions, given that many of those professionals are trained in engineering, business administration, economics, etc. They lack understanding and experience in the details of supply chain management, mainly in planning and logistics design, but also in the activity on different levels of the chain. The field needs training especially in technology management (software, automation, telecommunications).”.

- Modern, making use of the latest methodological trends () and current technologies and their possibilities (each student receives a laptop and the beginning of their degree programme as a work tool).
The BBA programme requires the knowledge of two languages with a high level of understanding. English and a second language of either French or German, in order to receive the degree. The aim is that the student finishes the degree with a C1 level of English as well as a B1 level of a second language.
For international students it is necessary to have a minimum of a B1 level of Spanish to enrol in their first course. In the event that you do not already have that level of Spanish, the university offers the possibility of enrolling in an intensive Spanish language course to obtain the required certification. Once completed the student will be prepared to pass a C1 level exam from the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The European Diploma supplement can be added to the degree. It is a document added to the degree that certifies the student’s training in order to be understood in comparison to the degrees of any other member state of the European Union, in accordance with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).
CESTE, Allied with the university of Wales.

From then on, students graduated with 2 degrees: one awarded by CESTE and another awarded by the University of Wales in the United Kingdom; the latter of which is an official British degree recognized in all European countries.

Few areas of business management have evolved as much as Supply Chain management has in the last 20 years in all aspects of its functioning—purchasing, advanced planning, production, distribution, or transport—and few businesses have reached their enormous potential to continue to improve their competitiveness and profitability.
Our department’s goal is to offer university students and professionals a practical and solid education which comes with the possibility of obtaining some of the most prestigious international professional certifications in this field.
When I finished high school, I didn’t really know what I wanted to study, and finally I opted into a training programme for an Honours Associates Degree in Management and Finance. After finishing those studies, I decided to go to University and looked at several options.
CESTE offered me the possibility of enrolling in the 3rd year of BBA (Bachelor in Business Administration), accepting the credits from my Associates Degree, and I thought it was a great option. With two years from my Associate’s degree and another two from BBA, I would expand my education and would be able to get an official university degree at the European level.
I accepted the offer and today I am very grateful and proud to have made that decision and to have met the people that I met; great classmates and friends, and also great facilitators. The experience I had was so good that, a year after I completed the BBA degree, I decided to also get my Professional Master’s degree (Master in Business Administration) at CESTE.
