The UPF Barcelona School of Management and the UPF-IDEC present their new masters and postgraduate training programmes in the Saló Futura room
UPF Barcelona School of Management and the IDEC-Pompeu Fabra University are the two masters and postgraduate training centres of Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) for professionals and graduates.
Both centres are committed to a new way of understanding postgraduate training, based on the scientific knowledge that the UPF professors and lecturers have, while adapting to market needs and training new professionals with new capacities. ‘Our programmes are orientated towards preparing young people or professionals, offering revolutionary solutions that contribute to the progression of our society’, explains Daniel Serra, Academic Director at the institution.
At the same time, the UPF-IDEC is centred on providing very specialized training, with multidisciplinary, innovative and cosmopolitan academic surroundings, and comprising 50 different nationalities; the UPF Barcelona School of Management is a consolidated business school and opens up on an international level with its Masters of Science.
The Masters of Science programmes differ from the others in their innovative methodology of a more knowledge-based approach. This methodology is based on analysis and processing of objective data, and employs the rigour of figures and scientific imperialism as key tools for comprehensive business management. Demand for these Masters of Science is increasing, especially abroad, and that is why the UPF Barcelona School of Management has expanded the number of Masters of Science programmes from three to seven this year. This academic year 2013/14, the number of students on these masters has increased by 39%, from last year’s figure of 61 students enrolled to the 85 there are presently. Only 16% of these students are Spanish. The majority come from Europe (Germany, Norway, Austria, United Kingdom or Switzerland), Asia (Turkey, China or India) or America and Africa. For the three years it has been functioning, the UPF Barcelona School of Management business school has been constantly growing. Each year sees around 4,000 students pass through its doors, and its internationalization through the Masters of Science programmes is considerable, with 85% foreign students.
Both of the UPF training centres manage to jointly cover the needs of the labour market as well as the ambitions and expectations of the professionals who enrol here. Below we have highlighted some of the programmes.
