The Abat Oliba CEU University was founded in 2003 in Barcelona. It is an institution based on the ideals of the Asociación Católica de Propagandistas (Catholic Propagandistic Association). The core principle in all its initiatives is its vocation of service towards the Catalan society, which follows the Christian spirit and, thus, the inviolable dignity of human life.


In 1993, it moved to the Bellesguard Campus, and as Teaching Centre of Superior Studies Abat Oliba CEU, started teaching all of its degrees in Law and Business Management, as well as the first stage of the Economics degree.

Ten years later, the new Abat Oliba CEU University is recognised by Law 20/2003, 4th of July, of the Catalan Parliament, creating two centres in Barcelona: the Social Sciences Faculty and the Engineering Technical College.
