Degree in Business Administration
240 credits - Faculty of Economics and Business
Below are the main data and benchmarks, as well as the results of the satisfaction surveys for the degree programme, which are periodically analysed and monitored by the centre administrator, the head of studies and the corresponding quality assurance commissions, with a view to promoting the ongoing improvement of the programme.
New students: these students are starting their studies from the beginning for the first time. They may have recognised credits or not.
New SIIU students: these students are starting their studies from the beginning, registering on a programme for the first time and, in accordance with SIIU criteria, may have fewer than 10 credits (for a Master's) or 30 credits (for an undergraduate programme) recognised. This set of students may also be referred to as the optimum new entry group.
Registered students: these students have an active registration on a programme for an academic year. This set of students may also be referred to as the total student population.
- Registration reservations are not included (due to the students awaiting a place at another university or credit recognition)
- Registration cancellations are not included
- Students with unpaid debts are not included
Graduates: these students have passed (passed or accredited) all credits required for the degree programme and have, therefore, finished their course regardless of whether they have requested their degree certificate be issued or not.
Length of studies
The average length of studies measures the average number of years that students take to graduate. The reference population is the optimum group.
Academic performance rates
Graduation and drop-out rates in relation to the entry cohort
|Graduation Rate||26 %||15 %|
|Drop-out Rate||43 %||53 %|
Final drop-out rate: the percentage of students from a new entry cohort that, without graduating, have not re-registered on the degree or any other programme, either at this university or at any other insitution in Spain, for two academic years in a row.
Graduation rate (RD 1393/2007) is defined as the percentage of students from an entry cohort that finish their programmes in the theoretical planned timeframe for the curriculum, or within an additional academic year. The reference population is the New Full-time SIIU Student Group.
Graduate efficiency rate in relation to the graduating class
|Graduate Efficiency Rate||88 %||85 %||85 %||84 %||81 %||79 %|
The efficiency rate is defined as the percentage ratio between the total number of credits passed by students throughout the registered programme from which they have graduated, and the total number of credits they effectively registered for. The reference population is the optimum group.
Degree success and performance rates
|Degree Success Rate||77 %||75 %||73 %||71 %||72 %||72 %|
|Performance Rate||69 %||65 %||63 %||60 %||61 %||62 %|
Success rate: the percetage ratio between the number of passed credits and the number of credits taken for assessment.
Performance rate: the percentage ratio between the number of credits passed and the number of credits registered for.
Satisfaction of groups involved
- Survey of student satisfaction with the study programme
- Survey of satisfaction and identification of needs of the teaching and research staff (PDI)
- Biennial survey of satisfaction and identification of needs of the administrative and service staff (PAS) who have supported the undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
Items rated on a scale of 1 to 4, where 1 means ‘not at all satisfied’ and 4 means ‘very satisfied’.
Survey participation rates
|Student participation rate||18 %||19 %||26 %||21 %||16 %||28 %||21 %|
|PDI participation rate||31 %||36 %||36 %||32 %||43 %||47 %||51 %|
|PAS participation rate||-||-||-||56 %||-||60 %||-|
Only the data that meet a double criterion of representativeness have been considered valid: on one hand, reaching 4 answered surveys and, on the other hand, that the number of answered surveys is equal to or greater than 15% of the population
