About the master's degree
This was one of the first qualifications to be recognised as an official university master’s degree according to the criteria set out for the European Higher Education Area.
This master’s degree aims to professionalise and teach people who are willing to take on the passionate task of instigating, organising and managing business projects, whether these involve production or services, in any of their different sectors. It is important to point out the strong practical focus, which is based on work placements in companies. The course also has a strong international focus, and attracts high numbers of foreign students.
Both the course structure and the teaching staff ensure that the programme meets the demands of today’s companies. These companies operate in an international context, and require employees with a good technical background who also have human qualities that ensure they are equipped to take on projects, making decisions based on both rigor and responsibility.
