Placements

Thanks to the degree's dual model, from the third year onwards and throughout the fourth year students will do their work placements with a contract in the different collaborator companies.

Bachelor's thesis

The Bachelor's Thesis (TFG) for the Business Logistics Degree is compulsory and has an allocation of 12 ECTS. TFGs in the Business Logistics Degree involve students carrying out a project, report or study of task where knowledge, capacities, competences and acquired and worked skills are applied, integrated and developed during their university degree. As this is a dual bachelor's degree thesis, the pupils must produce and defend a logistical project carried out during the dual placements.

TFGs are aimed at assessing degree-associated skills and finish with a public defence and an assessment of and mark for the work.

A student's dedication is determined by the 12 ECTs assigned to this course and by the equivalent 25 hours of the student's dedication per credit.

The thesis of the Dual Bachelor's Degree in Company Logistics will be supervised by a teacher from the bachelor's degree and will be co-supervised by the company’s logistical project director.

Mobility

Students can complete part of their degree programme abroad through the Erasmus programme, which enables them to carry on their studies whilst undertaking an international exchange with academic value in a European university.

They also have access to grants for placements at universities in Spain and on other continents, thanks to bilateral agreements, the SICUE programme and the expansion of the Erasmus+ Programme.
