Why this program?

  1. Because we need professionals who are specifically trained in the network dynamics of the digital society, so that they can make the most of their potential, benefiting themselves and the organizations they work with, as well as the community at large.
  2. Because of the program’s methodology, which is action-oriented more than towards 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. Because of the program’s collaboration with XNet, specialists in technopolitical action, renowned for promoting free culture, net neutrality and digital rights in the post-Edward Snowden era, as well as for fostering devices for transformation such as the so-called Anti-Corruption Inboxes for whistleblowing, which have been used to expose such cases as Bankia and "Tarjetas Black" in Spain.
  5. Because our faculty is made up of top-level national and international professors, strengthening access to influential networks in the 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.
