Presentation

The academy and the businesses together in the teaching of Management

The new structure of the Master’s in Management has been adapted to the demands and challenges of an ever-changing, increasingly global and digital world, where there is a strong call for new business models and disruptive management tools. Aimed at training managers who make a difference in organisations, the Master’s in Management study plan covers such prominent and trendy areas as the conceptualisation, structuring and analysis of social networks, the use of business intelligence in management, crowdfunding, venture capital, technological, disruptive and open innovation, the new trends of 5.0 marketing, the possibility of testing business ideas, among many others.

The course confers 120 ECTS and lasts two years. The teaching period is concentrated in year 1, which is subdivided into 2 semesters with 30 ECTS each. The remaining 60 ECTS are obtained from the dissertation, internship or project work to be carried out during year 2.

The first year of the course provides a solid basis for the specialisation to be developed during the second year in a specific management topic, according to particular interests, in an essentially autonomous way, although benefiting from the accompaniment of specialised and dedicated supervisors, through the completion of a dissertation, or alternatively, an internship or project work.

Why choose this course?
The challenges currently facing organisations call for highly qualified management professionals in the different functional areas, capable of promoting their alignment and reflecting strategically, analytically and critically on business models and practices. As such, the Master’s in Management is designed for those who want to make their mark on the job market, whether at the start of their career, in search of professional advancement, or with a view to setting up their own business, since the course fosters fundamental management and entrepreneurship skills, focusing on the most relevant and advanced organisational issues. The course favours the integration of theory and practice through practical cases, contacts with entrepreneurs, and using teaching methodologies that promote critical and applied thinking. The main qualitative and quantitative areas of Management are widely covered by the course, providing its graduates with transferable skills for a variety of labour and entrepreneurial roles in any sector of activity. The Master’s in Management also provides knowledge of research methods, working with data collection and analysis tools, which are fundamental for studying the organisational contexts and phenomena that will be the subject of the dissertation, project work or internship.
