Place of the course in the curriculum
The Civil Law is the area of civil law that regulates all relations that have an economic
background and consider the person in reference to his property, so that their bases are
embedded within the economic system, the initiative of individuals and the free market.
In this sense, the course Fundamentals of Civil Law focuses on the study of the rules governing
the obligations and contracts, to the extent that these rules articulate the legal exchange of
goods and services with economic significance. This corresponds well with basic training
necessary for the student to understand other subjects of the degree, if Fundamentals of
Commercial Law, its natural continuation, and taught later. Hence, the students have achieved a
solid legal training that help you understand the legal operations affecting the Company and
transfer that training to management and company management in civil society.
Objectives
The course aims to provide students of the Bachelor Degree in Economics from the legal tools
necessary for understanding the practical everyday problems in their own obligations and
contracts, which focused on their training, have allowed precise legal means face-to-be future
professionals in economics.
Given the role of the jurist and the aims of the future graduate, the basic objectives of any
course of civil law must ensure that students reach a reasonable level of knowledge for the
scope of this discipline, and proper use of such knowledge in the solution practical problems.
In this sense, the theory class is useful as a guide for the student to the study of the subject, as
a means to explain the fundamental concepts, to clarify the more complex issues or to highlight
the most important issues. As for the practical classes, should serve to make clear the close
relationship in law between theory and practice to acquire the necessary critical sense that
allows you to assess the various situations of legal court in this site are usually presented.
Syllabus
LESSON 1. - CONCEPT AND SYSTEMATICS OF CIVIL LAW.
LESSON 2. - CONCEPT, STRUCTURE AND SOURCES OF OBLIGATIONS.
LESSON 3. - TYPES OF OBLIGATIONS AND COMPLIANCE.
LESSON 4. - PERFORMANCE AND TERMINATION OF LIABILITY.
LESSON 5. - CONCEPT AND COMPONENTS OF CONTRACT.
LESSON 6. - CLASSIFICATION AND BIOLOGY OF CONTRACTS.
LESSON 7. - EFFECTIVENESS OF CONTRACTS AND INEFFECTIVE.
Competences and Habilities
SPECIFIC
- The course aims to provide legal rationality in the analysis and description of any aspect of
economic reality (C.3).
- The course assesses the consequences of various courses of action from the point of view
of civil law and economics applied to select the best targets taking into account the
distributional implications (C.4).
- Finally, the course allows the issuance of reports based on law advice on specific situations
of the economy (international, national or regional) or sectors and companies in the same
(C.5).
12
TRANSVERSE
- The subject achieves self-learning ability. The economic logic with its emphasis on legal
structure of models and variables allows the student the independent analysis of new
economic realities. For this reason, the student will be able to access independently scientific
literature that will enable future economic order issues which have to face (C.23).
- The subject can reach levels of sensitivity to environmental issues, social and gender within
the framework of the defense of human rights. The economy is ultimately a science that
studies processes of choice between alternative uses, and provides criteria for making that
choice satisfactory from the point of view of the resources used in it.
For this reason, economic decisions have huge implications legal, social, environmental and
gender. Therefore students are trained to understand these implications and always bear in
mind in their analysis the defense of human rights (C.28).
Methodologies
In relation to the subject and its location within the training module was developed with the
following contents:
- The classes allow exposing the theoretical content of the different lessons that make up the
program, following one or two reference Textbooks that reflect the rationale for the topics and
skills related to those provided.
- The practical classes are linked to the consequent understanding of concepts by students so
that they will develop the solution of problems in the classroom.
After class, the professor proposed to students carrying out work on theory and personal
problems, for whose implementation will be supported by the teacher in supervised workshops.
In these seminars students can share with their peers and the teacher are doubts, get solutions
to them and start playing for themselves the powers of matter.

Place of the course in the curriculum
Formative block to which it belongs
Quantitative Methods
Place of the course within the formative block and the curriculum
Economics has a strong quantitative component that requires the knowledge and use of
statistic tools, both in specific courses on quantitative methods and in general courses on
business administration. This course provides the tools to summarize, quantify and analyze
available information, and to identify and quantify in the presence of uncertainty. This course
is therefore strongly recommended prior to Statistics II and Econometrics.

Evaluation
General Considerations
The evaluation system is based on:
•
•
Coursework performed by the student, including class participation in lectures,
practical sessions, seminars and individual coursework (leading to a base grade
representing 40% of the final grade)
A final examination (60% of the final grade).
Evaluation criteria
Three written quizzes, around weeks 5, 9 and 13 – depending on the development of the
course -. In some practical sessions a final part could be devoted to the resolution of some
exercise to be handed in for evaluation. The 3 quizzes represent 80% of the base grade, and
exercises the remaining 20%. The final examination consists of theory and practice. A
passing grade requires 5/10 with no single question evaluated with 0 points.
27
Evaluation instruments
-
Written quizzes.
Exercises (solved in class).
Class participation.
Final examination.
Recommendations for evaluation.
The student is encouraged to make every effort to obtain a passing base grade in the
continuous evaluation.
Recommendation for the recuperation
The continuous evaluation cannot be recuperated. The final examination can be recuperated
on the same criteria as the initial evaluation.

Objectives
The goal in this subject is to get the students to learn the main constraints in the
international economic environment. In order to achieve this task, firstly, the most
important features of such environment will be analyzed. Secondly, the value of
international cooperation will be stressed through different real world examples. In the
third place, students will acquire knowledge about the structural changes linked to
economic growth. Finally, we highlight, with the help of various economic integration
processes, the importance of such a phenomenon at a global level. Furthermore, students
will eventually attain the skills to handle and manage top-level data and literature
sources in order to make research about aggregates on world economy and reach
significant findings related to the features and development of world economy together
with the challenges and prospects it faces.
Syllabus
PART I. FEATURES OF WORLD ECONOMY Lecture 1. Economic integration Lecture 2. Globalization of the economy Lecture 3. Neo‐protectionism Lecture 4. The north‐south gap Lecture 5.

presential time in the classroom and compulsory interaction with the professor, and 105 hours
(70%) to individual work by the student.
Evaluation criteria
A continuous evaluation system is in place that gives a 40% weight to the student course
work (base grade) and 60% to a final examination
Attendance to the lectures is compulsory and is therefore not part of the final evaluation.
The student is required to have attended at least 80% of the lectures and activities in order to
be evaluated.
The base grade will be available before the final examination. A mínimum of 4/10 is required
in the final examination to obtain a passing grade.

European Union (EU) in the economic policy design in our country. These effects might be
visible not only in the conditioning on fiscal policies (art. 135 Spanish Constitution) but also in
the regulatory design in specific economic branches that are subject to harmonization
requirements stemming from the single market, the monetary union and the strategic goals of
the EU.
The subject attempts to deepen into the theoretical rationale of the economic and monetary
integration as much as to offer an overview of the EU’s institutional framework, the main policies
and their most recent changes.

Objetives
In this course, my goal is that students have an overview of our financial system, to learn
which are the assets, intermediaries and financial markets, as well as give an overview to the
historical and Bank of Spain, meet the current and Monetary Policy governing bodies as the
European Central Bank (ECB) and the European System of Central Banks (ESCB). In
Topic 6, we make a brief study to determine the performance of the stock market and
establish a system of work to know more about other issues such as official credit
institutions and other financial intermediaries, which they developed and discussed in class,
with my tutoring and help in presentations. In this year and given the special circumstances
which has come under our Financial System, we have been in constant contact with today,
trying to get the perspective not only from the theoretical point of view but knowing first
hand as they develop situations in practice.

Objectives
The general objectives of the course are:
• Understanding the nature of business strategy and the mechanisms that support the business
survival at the industry in which the business competes.
• Seeking to understand and implement key strategic analytical tools.
• Gain an overview of the business that integrates the knowledge and skills developed throughout
functional specialization and highlighting the need for internal consistency both horizontally,
between business departments, and vertically, between different levels of analysis (corporate,
competitive and functional).
• The development of analytical skills that allow the student understand particular situations, for
example, the opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses involved, the competitive
advantages and disadvantages needed to formulate and implement different strategies, etc. Also,
of particular interest, is the development of critical and teamwork skills to analyze in depth case
studies.
Syllabus
The fundamental objective is to give a glimpse over the strategic management process within
the business, which allows firms to analyze the industry in which they compete and follow a
feasible strategic option.

Lesson 2. Corporate governance: Goal setting in business and corporate social responsibility.
Lesson 3. External analysis of the company: The general environment and competitive forces.

presential time in the classroom and compulsory interaction with the professor, and 105 hours
(70%) to individual work by the student.
Evaluation criteria
A continuous evaluation system is in place that gives a 40% weight to the student course
work (base grade) and 60% to a final examination
Attendance to the lectures is compulsory and is therefore not part of the final evaluation.
The student is required to have attended at least 80% of the lectures and activities in order to
be evaluated.
The base grade will be available before the final examination. A mínimum of 4/10 is required
in the final examination to obtain a passing grade.

- Class quizzes.
- Class participation.
196
- Final examination.
Recommendation for evaluation
The student is encouraged to make every effort to obtain a passing base grade in the
continuous evaluation.
Recommendations for the recuperation.
The continuous evaluation cannot be recuperated. The final examination can be recuperated
on the same criteria as the initial evaluation.

Objectives
The subject has assigned a total of 6 ECTS credits, equivalent to 150 hours. The focus of the
formative activity of this subject is specially practical. Consequently, the tool used to solve the
different suppositions will be the computer and the information technology corresponding
programs. The training activity will require specific theoretical reviews by students for the
resolution of the different assumptions, as well as a detailed knowledge and enough managing
of the different programs offered by the Treasury Department for the payment of periodic taxes
and the annual corresponding summaries at the end of the course. We will try to teach the
matter as faithful as possible to mercantile reality. Students must interpret it from basic data:
invoices, bills of exchange, official tables of amortization, official models of liquidation of taxes,
production of official Textbooks following the procedure of the Mercantile Record, etc.
The dynamics of the subject will be developed in accordance with the following phases:
a) Every topic will be initially exposed by teacher by means of magisterial lesson (theoretical
lesson), facilitating detailed relation of the legislation, bibliography and all the other sources
which will be needed for a thorough knowledge of the topic in question. In addition, the menu
options will be studied in the computer with the corresponding program to implement across the
computer the acquired knowledge.
b) Once finished the theoretical session, the teacher will facilitate the practical obligatory
suppositions to be resolved by the pupil.
c) A system of tutorships (tutoring lesson) will be established for the resolution of any doubts.
d) Each student will solve in class his exercises using the computer (practical session). Usually
they will be solved individually but sometimes they may be carried out in groups, depending on
the
breadth
and
complexity
of
the
exercise.
e) At the end of course, the teacher will offer several summarizing-exercises, which will impact
especially on the agenda developed in the subject throughout the course as a whole. After a
brief period of tutoring, they will be also solved by pupils in class across IT procedures.
In this final phase it is necessary to include at least, the whole accounting basic cycle that a
SME is force to make along the fiscal year.

Objectives
In general terms, the objective is to learn about the importance and consequences of the
European Union (EU) in the economic policy design in our country. These effects might be
visible not only in the conditioning on fiscal policies (art. 135 Spanish Constitution) but also in
the regulatory design in specific economic branches that are subject to harmonization
requirements stemming from the single market, the monetary union and the strategic goals of
the EU.
The subject attempts to deepen into the theoretical rationale of the economic and monetary
integration as much as to offer an overview of the EU’s institutional framework, the main policies
and their most recent changes.
Syllabus
‐
Approach to the international trade theories.
‐
Determinants of international trade.
‐
Economic integration: definition and different forms of integration.
‐
European integration
‐
Institutional framework in the European Union
‐
European public budget
‐
European common policies.
‐
European Monetary Union.
