Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences

This space is intended to be the gateway for facilitating interrelations between secondary education and the Faculty. We consider it necessary to strengthen, extend and improve the University’s ties with secondary education and higher vocational-training cycles.

In the different sections, we present you with activities and information that we think may be of interest to you.

Open days (JPOs) are designed specifically for you to get to know the university. We’ll tell you all about the courses we offer and show you around our buildings.

  • Open day for students: Friday, 10 February 2023
  • Open day for families: Saturday, 13 May 2023

For further general information on the UdG’s open days, please see this page.
