A total of six master’s and postgraduate programme will begin in January at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC Barcelona).  

In the Faculty of Communication Sciences:

Postgraduate degree in the digitalisation of retail and customer experience. The Faculty of Communication Sciences is now offering this innovative postgraduate programme.  It is predicted that the digital signage world market will grow annually by 10% until 2020, but right now in Spain only 10% of companies are attempting to achieve an omnichannel business model.  It has therefore become necessary for communication and marketing professionals, architects and interior designers to learn about the new digital formats that are within the reach of consumers today. This postgraduate degree takes a highly practical approach based on the study of real cases, hand in hand with professionals who use this new technology in their daily working life.
