More than 50 students from the European University of the Atlantic met in Hotel Bahía to attend the lecture given by economist Ramón Tamames about such an ongoing issue as the United Kingdom’s exit from Europe.
Students were invited by Ana Campos, vice-president of the Centro Montañés de Investigación y Desarrollo Empresarial (CEMIDE) and attended together with the Academic Vice-chancellor and director of the degree in Business Administration and Management offered in UNEATLANTICO, Silvia Aparicio Obregón.
Ramón Tamames discussed the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union. The economist stated that brexit is “really positive for the Union, for, as long as they have been a member state, they have never accepted Schengen, or the euro, or have been integrated in the CAP…”. With the negotiation between the United Kingdom and the European Union being still in process, Tamames thinks “British people are taking too long to make a decision and that is what is really hurting us”.
Once the lecture was finished, Tamames had a colloquium in which vice-chancellor Silvia Aparicio and the UNEATLANTICO professor and president of Puerto de Santander participated. Moreover, during the colloquium, Ramón Tamames gave his last book El último siglo económico. Capitalismo, el gato de siete vidas to student José Ramsés Ndong, the winner to best speaker in the UNEATLANTICO II Debate League and who is a regular attendee to the professor’s lectures.
The degree in Business Administration and Management offered by the European University of the Atlantic goes beyond classroom teaching and allows students to be updated about the world’s economic reality. With that in mind, students participate in courses and business lectures to know the economic, social and technological reality at first hand.
