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.
This degree prepares you specifically for the Tourism and Tourism business industry with the goal of training you to reach management-level positions by providing practical knowledge and the know-how to create a more competitive business. These courses have the purpose of creating managers who have made decisions and solve the problems of various organizations that work in this exciting field.
The rapid evolution of current economic and technological advances demand that business professionals– besides having a good understanding of management tools– develop their capacity to be critical, creative, strategic, and adaptable to the ever-changing environment of the business world in order to hit the mark when it comes to the business decisions they make for their companies.
In addition, the demands of societal advancement require one to continue to learn throughout their life. Therefore, those who are going to work in the business world should understand that learning is a life-long attitude. From the moment a degree is chosen, the future business executive must accept the challenge of maintaining a professional, effective, and up-to-date demeanour throughout their working life.
It is essential that a business professional develop their own work style and make a commitment to people and society at large so that learning should not only be based on concepts, but also on procedures, methodologies, techniques, attitudes, and social skills with those with whom you wish to create a personal and professional profile.
Official British Degree
At CESTE we follow the British educational model, in accordance with QAA standards (The UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education) and supervised by the University of Gales (University of Wales). This model guides both the design and renovation of our modules and classes, as well as our educational innovation, always seeking new means and methods of teaching more effectively.
In accordance with the British educational model, our methodology is:
- Dynamic and constantly revised.
- Innovative, applying the latest educational trends such as management simulations, design thinking, or role playing.
- Practical in order for our students to develop their own understanding, procedures, and work styles.
- Personalized, centred around small groups and attentive to the abilities and uniqueness of each student.
- An authentic personal experience that encourages students to develop their greatest potential.
- 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).
One of our distinguishing features is the possibility of taking bilingual classes, entirely in English for a wide range of classes. Also, students are encouraged to present their work and projects in English, something which is absolutely necessary nowadays.
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.
In 1994 CESTE wanted to give its university programmes an official and international significance. As a result, an agreement was signed 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.

CESTE is currently the only centre authorized by the government of Aragón where you can concurrently study this degree in order to start the transfer of the degree’s equivalency to the degree from the University of Wales.
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.
