That makes us different?

1. The employability of the student, in the center

We are obsessed that the student jumps into the working world in the best conditions. Therefore, our curriculum is connected with the employability of the future: internationalization, innovation and creativity in the management and strategic direction of resources.

2. The international dimension

  • Free supplementary training in English from first to fourth to improve the starting level.
  • Matters within the curriculum that reinforce language competence: taught in English or English for technical use.
  • International exchanges: with our Erasmus coordinated program with mobility in several European countries, so you can study a semester or course in another country.
  • Opportunities for international internships.

3. Direct contact with the profession

Because we understand that in order to become a good manager in the company, you must be in contact with the best professionals first. For this reason, we articulate your training from two key milestones:

  • We have visiting professors, key professionals from relevant organizations, who attend each course to share their experience with the students.
  • Throughout the degree, visits or other training activities are scheduled in companies to make contact with the reality of each sector.

4. The case method

We use this method as a transversal learning tool:

  • It is applied in all the courses from the first grade.
  • All the subjects that are taught throughout the course are involved. So the student becomes aware of the importance of each of the subjects taught and the interrelation that exists between them.
  • Visits are scheduled to the companies under study and talks with those responsible for them.

5. Double degrees of the specialist in double degrees

You can study at the same time two university courses with compatible schedules, with all the classrooms in the same facilities and, of course, without paying twice as much. So are the double degrees of the University specialist in double degrees.
