(*) The official curriculum is supplemented by a series of subjects, seminars and other activities which take on mandatory status in order to obtain the qualification issued by CUNEF itself.

(**) Professional practical placements are ideally undertaken at companies or institutions that have signed the corresponding educational cooperation agreement. CUNEF has a wide range of educational cooperation agreements in place for this purpose with institutions, legal practices, organisations and businesses in a range of industrial sectors. In any event, where the placement is performed depends on the agreements in place at any given time, and the offers published by the partner companies and institutions. In addition to the criteria established in selection processes by each legal practice, company or institution at any given time. CUNEF does not decide who or where; these decisions are instead taken by the legal practices, companies or institutions. It is therefore their responsibility to find a company or institution where students can complete their placement. CUNEF does, of course, offer active advice and support. Students can potentially apply for the recognition of the practical placement subject if they can demonstrate prior professional experience or placements.

The Double Master in Lawyering (Law and Banking Law & Financial Markets and Institutions) has been designed to allow participants to strengthen the knowledge, skills and abilities required in order to succeed in their future professional practice. This is therefore a professionally focused postgraduate programme combining academic rigour with the necessary practical emphasis on business and financial conduct. The various methodologies employed during the different subjects are designed to ensure that this theoretical/practical focus is a constant reality in the learning model for all subjects.

During the master’s programme the participants use the following learning methodologies in succession:

  • Traditional lectures and analysis of technical notes
  • Analysis and discussion of case studies
  • Sessions with guest conference speakers
  • Teamwork and presentations
  • Individual reading and research
  • Mentoring sessions and professional guidance
  • CUNEF Virtual Campus

The grading system is based on continuous assessment performed throughout the subject, taking into account such aspects as active participation in class, practical work and studies of practical cases and circumstances. The lecturers thus grade participants in accordance with the different teaching exercises and the final objective test in each subject. Attendance is mandatory for all subjects, and unjustified absence from more than 10% of sessions in any given subject could lead to a student being failed. All participants must successfully complete 100% of the subjects, as well as the final master’s project. Participants will need to be familiar with the use of information technologies, in particular the use of Excel (or other similar spreadsheets).

The goal of the postgraduate programmes in law at CUNEF (master’s and executive programmes) is to help the participants, and their employer organisations, to strengthen their executive and professional performance. During their year of teaching at CUNEF they acquire a sound theoretical and practical basis in the world of banking and financial law, along with the analytical tools and skills required to facilitate, develop and familiarise participants with financial decision-making in their respective operational spheres.

CUNEF has a close and active relationship with the business and professional world. The Professional Careers Department actively administers business placement programmes [1], job offers, and the organisation of seminars and complementary activities, the main aim of which is to provide CUNEF students with all the tools and skills they need, and to offer them the best possible opportunities to help them find their first job and boost their future professional development.

CUNEF students have the chance to take part in professional guidance activities including the following options:

  • CUNEF employment forum: Every year companies and institutions from a range of economic and business sectors take part at the Employment Forum organised by CUNEF, offering students and companies the perfect platform to exchange experiences and discover in detail the procedures involved in selecting young university graduates for their first job.
  • Company presentations and “on-campus” selection processes.
  • Companies from the legal, financial, consultancy, auditing and investment banking sectors regularly conduct selection processes, presentations, specific seminars… organised in partnership with the Professional Careers Department and specifically intended for CUNEF undergraduates and postgraduates.
  • Practical company placement programmes: external practical placements are ideally performed at establishments connected with the student’s chosen specialisation. A wide range of educational cooperation agreements are in place for this purpose with institutions, organisations and companies, covering a great many operational spheres. Business placements have an external tutor and an internal tutor assigned to them. The external tutor is a professional at the company where the placement is being performed, who directs, guides, supervises and evaluates the student’s practical activities. In evaluating these activities the external tutor appraises the abilities, skills and knowledge demonstrated by the students during their time at the host institution, using an assessment questionnaire designed by the External Practical Placement Coordinators. In order to ensure proper organisation and implementation of external practical placements, for each of the training pathways provided there will be an External Practical Placement Coordinator (internal tutor), who will be a lecturer at the postgraduate department responsible for organising the placements connected with the professional area of the pathway in question. The educational goals of external practical placements are:
    • Understand the different fields of application of Banking and Market Law and Financial Institutions.
    • Give students an insight into the realities of professional life.
    • Integrate and consolidate the skills covered by the qualification in different professional fields.
  • Seminars and practical activities for professional practice. Meanwhile, participants attend a range of seminars and workshops focused on underpinning their specialist knowledge and skills for professional practice.
  • Employment exchange. CUNEF, in partnership with the CUNEF Alumni Association, administers the job offers regularly announced by companies and institutions.

[1] Professional practical placements ideally take place at companies or institutions that have signed the corresponding educational cooperation agreement. CUNEF has a wide range of educational cooperation agreements in place for this purpose with institutions, legal practices, organisations and businesses in a range of industrial sectors. In any event, where the placement is performed depends on the agreements in place at any given time, and the offers announced by the partner companies and institutions. In addition to the criteria established in selection processes by each legal practice, company or institution at any given time. CUNEF does not decide who or where; these decisions are instead taken by the legal practices, companies or institutions. It is therefore their responsibility to find a company or institution where students can complete their placement. CUNEF does, of course, offer active advice and support. The students can potentially apply for the recognition of the practical placement subject if they can demonstrate prior professional experience or placements.

Day-to-day teaching activities are supplemented over the year of the master’s programme by an additional range of activities allowing participants to extend their knowledge, underpin their professional focus, gain on-the-ground experience of professional practice, or try out for themselves initiatives and proposals developed by the leading experts in professional financial practice. The University Master in Banking and Market Law and Financial Institutions (MBL) includes the following supplementary activities, among others:

  • Professional Advice Programme – “Passport to Your Future”: through this initiative consultants with extensive experience in a selection processes accompany and assist participants on the master’s programmes in finance in strengthening their professional performance. The programme includes three types of activity:
    • Practical workshops at which participants have the chance to learn directly from selection experts about such issues as: guidelines when writing and presenting a CV and covering letter, where and how to look for employment opportunities, how to deal with different types of selection process conducted by companies and to understand your strengths and areas for improvement, so as successfully to display a competitive edge in the marketplace, etc.
    • Meetings with renowned professionals in their respective occupational fields, who give a first-hand presentation of the market in which participants will spend their professional future, along with those professional profiles most in demand, the jobs available to them and the various options offered by companies in their sector.
    • Individual mentoring sessions at which professional mentors allow participants to draw on all their know-how so as to help focus the future professional development of CUNEF master’s programme students.
  • Seminars – Practical Workshops and Conferences: over the course of the master’s programme a number of specialisation seminars and practical workshops are organised, along with conferences, working breakfasts, presentations… with the aim of helping participants gain access to specialist knowledge, experiences, initiatives and novel projects presented first-hand by leading professional experts in their respective operational spheres.
  • Supplementary International Stages : once they have completed their master’s programme, those students who so wish can opt for a complementary international training period undertaken at universities or business schools that have a partnership with CUNEF. These periods of international training take place under the aegis of bilateral agreements or exchange agreements, and involve students spending an additional period of training at the partner university, in accordance with the terms set out in the cooperation agreement established between the two institutions.

The aim of the SIGC is to ascertain in detail the development of official qualifications in accordance with the terms set out in the qualifications verification memorandum. Each year actions are taken to underpin the strengths of the qualification and the institution, to identify and minimise areas for improvement and to ensure proper development of the terms set out in the qualifications verification memorandum. Due interaction with all stakeholders involved in the development of the qualification is likewise ensured so as to enhance quality standards and satisfaction with the qualification.
