Abat Oliba CEU University, located in Barcelona, is one of three privately run, social-initiative universities that make up the CEU educational group, established by the Catholic Association of Propagandists. Officially recognised as a university in 2003, it has more than forty years’ experience in the provision of higher education. Its current structure comprises three faculties (Law and Business; Communication, Education and Humanities; and Psychology) in which undergraduate and graduate studies are taught. Among its most distinguishing features is the satisfaction of its students and the high employability rate of its graduates, as demonstrated in various studies by independent bodies. Furthermore, as part of its commitment to the internationalisation of studies, the University also offers several degrees that are taught in two languages.
Keenly aware of the importance of the professional prospects of its students, the University has developed a teaching methodology based on classes in small groups, workshops and practical seminars, and individualised tutoring programmes. The University also offers a range of programmes for skills development and international mobility, such as internships abroad, among others, meaning students receive the best education to prepare them for the world of work, be it at home or abroad. The alumni employment rate is 90.1%, one of the highest for all Catalan universities in the field of social sciences (AQU 2017 jobs market insertion survey).
Abat Oliba CEU University is committed to academic and professional excellence, as well as to the comprehensive education of its students.
