The Postgraduate Course in Technopolitics and Rights in the Digital Era (common goods, democracy and communication in the information era) trains active players in the new models of strategic action taking place in the context of the information era. Versatile professionals who elaborate new forms of organization and action and lead sectors that transform and are in transformation.

Over the course you will learn about new digital rights; you will understand the dynamics of network operations and the multiple options they offer; you will learn how to design, manage and lead policy transformation to adapt them to a current context; you will discover new forms of communication and participation; you will learn new methodologies for the strategic design of action plans; and you will understand the possibilities of the digital context and the information needed to refine capacities and abilities across all professional sectors.

The Postgraduate Course in Technopolitics and Rights in the Digital Era is aimed at public-sector managers, researchers and academics in the fields of political sciences, social sciences and humanities, along with journalists, lawyers, political officials, professionals, entrepreneurs, computer scientists, economists, activities and managers in the private sector and of organizations undergoing transformation processes. It is also aimed at directors of organizations and institutions that drive programs of participation, networking, social responsibility and political involvement.

Why this program?

  1. Because we need professionals who are specifically trained in the network dynamics of the digital society, so that they can fully make the most of their potential, benefiting themselves and the organizations they work with, as well as the community at large.
  2. It has a methodological focus, given that the program is formed mostly around action as opposed to academic reflection or technological innovation. In this regard, specific technological knowledge is not required.
  3. Its objective is to help academic institutions, professionals and organizations to reposition themselves and adapt to the current scenario.
  4. Thanks to the collaboration with XNet specialists in technopolitical activity, renowned for promoting free culture, net neutrality, digital rights in the era following the revelations of Edward Snowden, and for driving real transformation devices such as Anti-Corruption Inboxes, which Bankia and Tarjetas Black have been able to open.
  5. Because its faculty is formed of top-level national and international professors, with the ability to strengthen influencing networks in this field.
  6. Because it uses its own, advanced learning model, based on the educational philosophy expressed in the manifesto of the UPF Barcelona School of Management.
