* The Programme Offers a Unique Process Where These Dimensions Can Be Developed :
* The contents of the modules present all the knowledge and skills to be acquired as well as the personal and behavioural characteristics or functional competencies to be developed;
* The teaching strategies mix aspects oflecturing, conference participation, discussions, group dynamics, confrontations, participative methods, presentations, simulations, case studies, projects, peer review and integrated business practices;
* Work on the research project contributes to developing and to improving trans-competencies, personal and behavioural competencies, ethics and values, professional experience and individualperformance.
The thesis integrates these dimensions and demonstrates the students' capacity to learn, adopt and adapt.
Career opportunities Positions held are highly regarded in terms of the duties performed and in the sector of activity. Some examples include: Senior Executive Positions, Academic, and Consultancy.
