The role of customs in international operations

Project supervisor: José Miguel Aliaga

Descripción

In this project I wanted to find out how Spanish companies cope with customs. I focused on customs establishments in Spain. I first studied customs establishments from a normative point of view to equip myself with the tools to study real companies. Before carrying out the normative analysis on customs establishments, I studied customs rules and regulations. I then examined real-life cases by interviewing the customs directors at three companies: Industria de Turbo Propulsores, Suministros Entrepot and Universal Global Logistics.

Viability study of importing soybeans from the Gulf of Guinea

Project supervisor: Marc Torras Colls

Descripción

Due to the huge increase in the world’s population, the growing percentage of people moving from rural to urban areas and the rise in per capita income, we believe that by 2050 feeding the global population will be a real challenge, leading to an increase in the demand for soybeans. Given that soybeans are currently only available from a limited number of countries, this project assesses the viability of the Gulf of Guinea as a possible alternative for providing soybeans. This would involve major changes for the many European companies that import soybeans.

Federico Beltran Masses: Remembering the Forgotten. The Pursuit of a Documentary

Project supervisor: Ariadna Casasús Bernacho

Descripción

This project comprises two main parts: a documentary and a crowdfunding campaign. These two parts come together to form the project Federico Beltran Masses: Remembering the Forgotten. After analysing the needs of the documentary, a crowdfunding campaign was designed, complete with rewards, using Verkami, a Catalan crowdfunding platform for funding cultural projects. Although we need €40,000 in total, we will set out to raise €20,595 net (50.47% of the total cost), since this is a more accessible figure. We will use low-cost promotions, such as social media campaigns. The Verkami page on Verkami can be found in an appendix.
