Training goals 

The aim of this degree course is to provide graduates with the capacity to administer and manage enterprises and other organisations.

Students can choose from four specialist pathways, i.e. the agro-food, construction, industrial and services businesses, which provide students with basic knowledge of the technologies used in the different sectors.

  • It must respond to the demand for Business Administration and Management professionals expressed by enterprises in the Valencian Region, while taking into account characteristics such as the size of these businesses.
  • It must train professionals to take on roles as managers, supervisors or external consultants for small and medium businesses.
