Methodology

Content

The content of each specialty is designed with practicing professionals in mind and with a view to supplementing the training of recent law graduates in order to tailor their skills to the profile sought by national and international companies, law firms and financial institutions.

Practical Application

The different programs are designed to strike the right balance between theory and practice. In other words, they combine a solid, well-structured theoretical base with its indispensable practical application in the business world.

An all-embracing approach

We offer an all-embracing approach to the materials studied, using case studies based on real national and international business scenarios and combining a range of disciplines. This allows students to gain an overall perspective of problems and encourages them to be creative in their search for innovative solutions.

New Technologies

All programs promote the learning and use of new technologies. In addition to offering IT seminars, we have a WiFi network that facilitates internet access and access to specialist databases. Furthermore, our Intranet enables students to communicate among themselves and with Center staff, as well as access a range of information sources: grades, academic calendars, alumni lists, library catalog, invitations and calls to various events, job advertisements, online courses, and so on.

Participation

In order to facilitate student participation in the sound running of each program, a student committee is set up for each master’s degree course to ensure a permanent communication channel with Center Management.

Skills and Attitudes

In addition to the acquisition of knowledge, the Center seeks to encourage the full development of professional skills and attitudes, such as a sense of responsibility, the ability to communicate, negotiation skills, and a willingness to cooperate and work in a team.

Rules and continuance

Recognition and transfer of credits

For the purposes provided in the applicable legislation in force, in order to ensure student mobility, recognition means the acceptance by Universidad Antonio de Nebrija of credits which, having been obtained on officially recognized courses, at this or any other university, are taken into account on other courses for the purpose of obtaining an officially recognized qualification.

The following credits obtained by students will be recognized in new courses:

  • a) credits corresponding to core subjects of qualifications belonging to the same branch of knowledge.

  • b) credits corresponding to core subjects on the intended degree that come from qualifications in other branches of knowledge.

  • c) other credits may be recognized by the University by taking into account skills and knowledge associated with the subjects studied by the student and those provided in the syllabus, or multidisciplinary skills and knowledge.

Credit transfer involves the inclusion in the official academic transcript of the courses taken by each student of credits obtained in previous officially recognized courses, at this or any other university, that did not lead to the obtainment of an official qualification.

Credit recognition and/or transfer must be requested by the student on enrollment. Exceptionally, a different time period may be established with express authorization. Students must also pay the fees stipulated for such purpose.

Students must present the following documentation to the Course Secretary’s Office:

  • Academic transcript (original or officially certified photocopy) indicating the name of the subjects, type, number of ECTS credits and the grade obtained by the student.
  • In the case of credits referred to under letters b) and c) above, a detailed syllabus must be submitted (stamped original or officially certified photocopy).

The University may also request any additional documentation it sees fit. The Course Secretary’s Office will send the submitted documentation to the Academic Committee of each department, which will decide whether to accept or reject the credit recognition and/or transfer request.

All credits obtained by the student on officially recognized courses studied at any university, any transferred, recognized and passed for the obtainment of the relevant qualification will be included in their academic transcript and reflected in the Diploma Supplement, if so requested.
