Proffesional Prospects

One of the University of Navarra's priorities is to promote the professional development of its students

The Careers Office helps students map out their careers and offers guidance not only for the immediate future, but throughout their careers. To do this, the School benefits from the support of the University of Navarra Business Foundation (FEUN), an institution that for 25 years has served as a point of contact between business and the university.

We provide students and graduates with their first contact with the professional world and facilitate access to the job market.  Innovative, high-ranking companies support us and collaborate on this project.
