General Objectives of the Course
The Master’s in Management (MG) seeks to prepare graduates who will assume responsibilities in management of organisations, capable of interaction with other players in decision-making or research processes. The degree will offer a first professional experience (integrated internship) or the creation of a project to students who follow the professional path. Research path students will be given the necessary preparation and supervision to write a dissertation, which will enable them to proceed with studies in the 3rd cycle.
Learning Objectives and Intended Skills
This Degree aims to provide higher education at the intersection between Management and Accounting, Law and Information Technologies, granting students ample freedom to define a path according to their interests. Curricular Structure: for the first year, the study plan foresees 5 mandatory units of study (30 ECTS), and the remaining 30 ECTS are obtained in optional units of study. One of these options – Research Methodology – is a prerequisite for students who choose to undertake a Master's dissertation during the 2nd year. In the 2nd year, in alternative to a Master's dissertation (60 ECTS), students may pursue a vocational project or an integrated internship (42 ECTS) plus 18 ECTS in optional units of study.
Mode of Study
Teaching sessions will take place from Monday to Friday in day period.
Access to Further Studies
Master's graduates in Management have increased competences for applying to a PhD programme.
