External internship regulations

Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.

In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and to register the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extra-curricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.

Universidad Europea has signed over 3,000 agreements with different institutions, companies or financial institutions, such as Banco Santander, Deloitte, Adidas, Telefónica, Grupo Día, Accenture, Phillips Ibérica, Microsoft, PWC, Salesforce, etc.

Universidad Europea has 253 agreements for study abroad exchanges which sometimes allow for international internships, such as with the University of Berkeley or McGill.

Additionally, it is worth noting the professional projection of these students in international organizations which continuously require students from this discipline, such as:

  • World Bank
  • International Monetary Fund
  • European Central Bank

International business and relations degree career opportunities

A cutting-edge syllabus focused on the market, an experiential academic model, an international outlook and compulsory internships make up the core of the degree, increasing your employability and entrepreneurial capacity and making it easier for you to access the national and international job market. As a Graduate in International Business and International Relations, you will be highly skilled with an international projection, fully capacitated for the international management of a company. You will acquire the knowledge, techniques, skills and conduct needed in international business culture.

You will acquire the latter through international exchanges during your degree.

Frequently Asked Questions

The importance of having an international profile has become increasingly important over the past few years because of the multinational and multicultural way that society has evolved. The Double Degree in International Business + International Relations at Universidad Europea offers you the possibility to attain two undergraduate degrees in five years and allows you to develop deep knowledge in both business and international relations.

Our graduates develop a versatile profile that opens doors to careers across the globe in many sectors. If you choose to study here, you will be able to gain a real insight into the professional world thanks to our agreements with large organisations in which you can carry out work placements and internships.

Our study plan ensures that you hone your skills in both areas, with subjects including:

  • Theory and Analysis of International Conflicts,
  • Diplomatic and Consular Law,
  • Defence and Security Alliances,
  • International Negotiation and Diplomacy,
  • World Economics
  • Business Intelligence
  • International Strategic Management

While international business and international relations go hand-in-hand and, together, will help you achieve a profile to enjoy a successful career in whatever sector and wherever you choose around the world, there are some differences between the two. Let us explain:

  • International relations is the study of how political, social, and religious forces interact with each other in largely peaceful ways (although conflict does sometimes arise). The curriculum is based on the liberal arts, history, geography and social sciences.
  • International business, as the name suggests, focuses more on how global organisations trade goods and services. There is more of a focus on the management and finance side - with subjects typically including budgeting, production management, distribution and logistics, and competitor analysis.

Graduating with a double degree in international business and international relations will open doors to a varied and global career.

Our graduates have gone on to become leaders in all sorts of industries and environments. This is just an example of what you can expect to do:

  • Director or manager of any department of a company or multinational corporate organisation.
  • Entrepreneur managing your own company or family business.
  • International, commerce and economic relations expert at foreign trade organisations, firms and consulting agencies.
  • Researcher at institutions or Think Tanks.
  • At the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Central European Bank or at private financial institutions.
  • Diplomatic missions or consulates.
  • Business development advisor or consultant.

Choosing Universidad Europea as the place to study business and international relations will help set you apart.

This is because we have a focus on experiential learning. So, as well as learning the theory behind business structures and international relations, you will be putting it into practice from day one thanks to agreements with companies across all sectors. You will have compulsory internship periods, as well as two international exchange opportunities - you can choose from more than 100 options in the US, Europe and Asia.

In addition, you will have access to a top class faculty made up of leading experts in banking, financial services, politics and international relations.
