Bachelor's degree in Economics-Statistics (interuniversity UB-UPC double degree)

2017-2018 academic year

This dual-track programme in economics and statistics, coordinated by the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and with the UPC as a participant, allows you to earn two degrees. In addition to the scientific training provided in the bachelor’s degree in Economics – which will enable you to understand the fundamentals of theoretical and applied economics and apply the analytical techniques of this discipline – you will develop the skills that statisticians use to collect and analyse information. As a graduate of this double-degree course you will be able to rapidly adapt to economic and social changes, identify problems, and deliver solutions based on advanced information analysis methods for optimal decision-making. The course is offered jointly with the University of Barcelona (UB), so students reap the rewards of a richer learning experience, benefiting from the combined expertise of UPC and UB teaching staff in engineering and technology, economics, and social and health sciences.
