5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process designed for the course is based on a strong interaction between the teacher and the student, through the division of work and the responsibilities of both.

The subject “Economía, Organización y Gestión de Empresas” is thought of as an autonomous combination of contents, but organized in two fundamental and complementary ways, the understanding of the theoretical concepts of each didactic unit and the resolution and analysis of problems, through different activities.

In order to achieve the learning outcomes of this subject, the teaching organization will be developed through blocks of content:

  • Block I: Treatment and record of the economic and financial information; this question justifies the need for reading about the economic and financial information for endogenous and exogenous users of the company, as well as of the annual accounts as documents from which the economic and financial position of the company can be analyzed.
  • Block II: Results and Valuation of companies; it shows how to treat, to analyze and to interpret the economic and financial information of the company and its results with the study of profitability and risk functions
  • Block III - Financing and investment in the Company: Focuses on an introduction to the decision processes on financing and investment in the company and the influence of time in its valuation, using financial mathematics for that purpose.

The linkage of these contents with the learning outcomes is as follows.

  • Block I, to reach learning outcomes 1 to 4
  • Block II, to reach learning outcomes 5 to 7
  • Block III, to reach learning outcome 8

5.2. Learning tasks

Along the semester the following activities will developed:

  • Lectures: The theoretical concepts of the subject are explained and illustrative examples are developed as support to the theory when necessary.
  • Practical Classes: focused on the explanation, solution and discussion of practical cases that require a strong involvement of the student.
  • Tutored activities, programmed for the supervision of monitored work requiring a high level of advice by the teacher, as well as for the follow-up of the learning in which the teachers guide the students about the methodology of study necessary or more convenient for the assimilation of the aspects developed in each unit.
  • Individual Tutorials: Those carried out giving individual, personalized attention of the teacher. They may be in person or online.
  • Reinforcement activities, through the learning virtual portal Moodle, in which cases and readings that reinforce the basic contents of the course will be suggested
  • Autonomous activities of students to:
    • Study, understand and take in the theoretical and practical contents.
    • Preparation of topics for debate in class and resolution of suggested problems.
    • Preparation of written tests for Continuous and Global Assessment.
