ESADE Law School introduces a new Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order

The Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order aims to attract international students and “broaden the horizons of ESADE Law School to prepare students for an increasingly global world”

Starting next year, ESADE will offer a new official degree programme that will train students in economics and international politics. Students will be able to take the Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order alone or in combination with the Bachelor in Law.

This new programme will be offered for the first time in the 2019-2020 academic year. The new Bachelor programme – taught entirely in English – is designed to attract international students to ESADE Law School. Moreover, students who enrol in both degree programmes will receive a comprehensive education with a global perspective: the legal education provided by ESADE Law School for more than 25 years will be combined with new disciplines that are essential to understanding today’s world, including geopolitics, global governance and cybersecurity. 

The new programme draws on the experience and professional track record of ESADE’s faculty and research centres. Among these are centres such as ESADEgeo, which has extensive experience in the field of global governance and is led by ESADE faculty member Javier Solana. ESADE is also recruiting world-class lecturers whose expertise complements that of our current faculty. 

New professional profiles

Juan Pedro Aznar, who lectures at ESADE and is the head of the new programme, commented: “The new Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order will broaden the horizons of ESADE Law School to prepare students for an increasingly global world.” He highlighted the new professional profiles that students will obtain in the Bachelor or the double degree programme. “ESADE will no longer just train executives and jurists; we will also be training professionals in international economics and experts on international politics and law.”

Both of the new programmes include a semester of geographical specialisation. Each student, depending on his or her interests, will complete this semester abroad at a university in Latin America, Europe, the Maghreb and the Middle East, Asia, or the English-speaking world. Students will also have the opportunity to choose one of two specialisations: Global Economics, for an education focused on the economy, or Global Politics, for a profile tailored to a career in diplomacy, international institutions or international consulting firms. 

International career paths

On completion of the new Bachelor programme, graduates will have a global professional profile that will enable them to pursue a career in international organisations. Thanks to its extensive network of contacts and agreements with international organisations, companies and think tanks, ESADE’s Career Services team is well positioned to help graduates launch a professional career.

“International organisations are increasingly interested in finding professionals with a global perspective who can help them face both economic and legal challenges,” commented Aznar.  “With this new Bachelor, and the double degree combined with the Bachelor in Law, ESADE will be training analysts capable of building a career in the global job market.”
