Pathway in English



Would you like to study English at the UIB?

Thanks to the increasing internationalisation of economics and business, and the key role played by English in this process, the Faculty of Economics & Business at the UIB is firmly committed to enhancing the international aspects of its courses and offers students the PATHWAY IN ENGLISH as part of the degrees in Economics and Business Administration. The PATHWAY IN ENGLISH will help students improve their language skills and use these skills in the fields of economics and business. In turn, taking the PATHWAY IN ENGLISH will add a more international perspective to learning and help with finding employment after graduating, both in the Balearic Islands and internationally.

Pathway Features

The pathway offers students in the faculty the chance to study a wide number of subjects on the syllabus in English, as well as to spend some time at a university overseas where they can also study in English.

Students will be awarded the Pathway in English certificate if they take at least 100 ECTS of the degree in English.

This means:

  • A minimum of 60 ECTS in the first three years (including core training and compulsory subjects).
  • Stay abroad at an overseas university, studying in English for at least one semester.
  • Writing the Final Degree Project in English.

The subject 'Business English' will be accredited to those students who take the pathway in English.

The European Diploma Supplement will state the number of credits, subjects, stays, etc. taken in English, even for those students to fail to attain the necessary criteria to be awarded the Pathway in English certificate.

If more than 23 students are interested, academic records and level of English will be taken into account, and students may be asked to take a personal interview. If the number of students who enrol in the course is too low, the Faculty may decide to cancel the pathway.
