The international perspective of the degrees at Villanueva can be observed right from the beginning with language classes (English and French or German), intercultural seminars, the presence of international students and the opportunity to participate in different events at foreign universities (International Law Week, International Marketing Week, Business Week-Finance, International Semesters etc.). Furthermore, students enrolled in the BA + Law and Bachelor in International Business degrees complete their studies with an International Year split between two universities abroad.
Some of these universities form part of the International EBS (European Business School) with centers in London (Regent’s University London), Paris (EBS Paris), Dortmund, Frankfurt and Munich (ISM: International School of Management. Other universities are part of the EBC Hochschule group in Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Düsseldorf or the BUSINET (Global Business Education Network) like the EPHEC in Brussels, The Hague University of Applied Sciences, Avans, Stenden and NHL in The Netherlands or Link University in Rome.
Villanueva also has bilateral agreements with American universities (Berkeley College in New York, the University of California Riverside in Los Angeles, and Georgia State University in Atlanta) and Asian universities (Shanghai University in China), as well as with other prestigious European universities such as the Paris-Est Creteil Val-de-Marne University, University of Liège and the Pantheon Sorbonne University (Paris I).
Students enrolled in the Master’s in Access to the Profession of Lawyer (MAAB) also have the possibility of completing their postgraduate studies with an International Legal Semester in Berlin, New York or Shanghai. The courses are aimed at gaining greater knowledge of the German legal system, European institutions or the idiosyncrasies of the American legal system. Work placement at multinationals or international law firms is available at all of the destinations.
The International Year ends with an internship, which allows our students to experience different cultures in an academic, social and business setting, thereby improving their knowledge and communication skills in other languages. The countries and universities are determined by the languages chosen and studied in previous years.
