Curriculum Flecha DownCreated with Sketch.


Studies on the E-3 Program (Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Management and Bachelor's Degree in Law) comprise a total of 377 ECTS credits structured over five academic years, after which both official degrees are awarded. The average workload in each academic year works out at approximately 76 credits per academic year.

As with the rest of ICADE's combined programs, the E-3 Program offers, as of academic year 2016/2017, an innovative curriculum structure that aims to ensure the acquisition of key knowledge related to the two Bachelor's Degrees, while also allowing students to customize their studies.

The first three academic years of the program are common for all students, ensuring the uniform acquisition of the fundamental skills and knowledge related to the Bachelor's Degree in Law and the Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Management.

In the final two academic years of the program, students have the opportunity to choose how to configure their studies:

In the 4th academic year of the E-3 Program, students can opt to continue their training in ICADE in both Degrees or to study the first semester in a Faculty of Law or Business School of one of the many Universities with which ICADE has an exchange agreement. In the latter case, the subjects taught in the 4th academic year are redistributed among the two semesters in order to maximize recognition of the modules studied during the semester abroad and to ensure that training continues as it should during the second term

Similarly, in the first semester of the 5th academic year of the E-3 Program, students can choose to undertake an extended period of internship, completing their education in ICADE or studying in a Faculty of Law or Business School abroad.
