Professional experts with a deep knowledge of international transactions are increasingly needed to monitor regulations in different countries, and the geopolitical and economic issues that shape reality.

With the Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order you will be one of these experts: you will be trained to analyse from a multidisciplinary point of view all types of international relations and provide solutions to the conflicts that public and private organisations face in a global environment. Understanding how the world works will enable you to influence the world, and this will ensure that your contribution is essential for companies and organisations.
