The Faculty of Commerce at the University of Vigo offers a unique opportunity to get an official university degree thanks to our international agreements for Double Degrees with two prestigious European public universities: Hochschule Bochum (Germany) y Université de Pau et des Pays de l´Adour (France).
This scheme makes it possible for our students of the Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce to get two official university degrees in the four-year period of their studies. This implies that they need not take more subjects or extend the time period of their studies.
In order to access this system of mutual credit recognition, the student must join the partner university for a whole academic year. Once the academic requirements in both universities have been fulfilled, the student can graduate and is entitled to the Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce of the University of Vigo and that of the partner university: Bachelor in Intenational Business and Management (Hochschule Bochum) or Licence en Economie et Gestion (Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour). Both are official degrees of the European Space of Higher Education.
These international agreements for double degrees provide our students at the Faculty of Commerce with an international academic experience, enhance their employment opportunities in Spain and the rest of the world. And constitute a unique, different opportunity of the Degree in Commerce.
