Given that business activity and the entrepreneurial phenomenon cover any area of society, qualifications from any branch of knowledge are considered appropriate: engineers, humanists, jurists, economists, journalists, architects, scientific experts etc. Students coming from degrees far from Economics and Business and who have not had additional training related to subjects such as Introduction to Business and/or Fundamentals of Business Management must take the "Introduction to Business" training complements.

    • Inicio

      METODOLOGÍA BLENDED/SEMIPRESENCIAL*

      Este máster se oferta en dos modalidades: presencial 100% y semipresencial.

      El desarrollo de la modalidad semipresencial se realiza mediante la plataforma virtual Aula Global y las aplicaciones colaborativas que se integran en la misma (Blackboard, Wooclap, Kaltura, entre otras). A través de dicha plataforma se proporcionan los materiales didácticos y el alumnado entrega las tareas asignadas. La comunicación entre los estudiantes y el equipo docente es directa y bidireccional. Se fomenta la participación del alumnado a través de preguntas, sugerencias y propuestas.

      Las clases impartidas en el máster se emiten en directo para que el alumno pueda seguirlas y participar a distancia de forma síncrona.

      Durante todo el periodo de formación no presencial, el alumnado contará con apoyo y tutorización específico, monitorizando el progreso de los estudiantes antes de su incorporación al grupo presencial.

       

      * Pendiente de aprobación para el curso 2021-2022

      Desarrollo de la Modadlidad Semipresencial

      CUATRIMESTRE 1
      Docencia online
      Seguimiento síncrono de las clases
      Exámenes presenciales en enero
      CUATRIMESTRE 2
      Docencia presencial
      Los estudiantes del grupo semipresencial se agruparán con los estudiantes del grupo presencial
      Exámenes presenciales en mayo
      Realización de Prácticas Externas y TFM

      Se plantea una opción semipresencial en la que, en el primer cuatrimestre -de septiembre-enero- las clases se siguen online de forma síncrona. El diseño de horarios será lo más compatible posible con diferentes husos horarios de los estudiantes internacionales. En concreto, serían en franjas horarias centrales del día (como puede ser de 15 a 19:30 horas).

      En el segundo cuatrimestre (clases de febrero-mayo) el estudiante ya asiste a clases de forma presencial.

      Las actividades formativas serían las mismas para todos los estudiantes en las dos modalidades. En particular, las actividades formativas ligadas a las prácticas externas y el TFM se plantean en formato presencial, ya que el estudiante asiste a las clases también de forma presencial durante ese cuatrimestre. El seguimiento y acompañamiento de los estudiantes se hace a través de tutorías, que se intensificarán para tener un seguimiento especial en el caso de los estudiantes semipresenciales.

      Los exámenes y fechas son los mismos estudiantes de las modalidades presencial y semipresencial. En ambos cuatrimestres se realizan presencialmente en sus respectivas convocatorias.

      Admisión y Matrícula

      Toda la información referida al proceso de admisión y matrícula en la modalidad presencial es de aplicación a la modalidad blended/semipresencial.

      Por favor revisa los apartados correspondientes en la web del máster.

    • CURRICULUM

      (O)= Obligatoria : 36 ECTS

      (OP)= Asignatura Optativa: 12 ECTS

      (TFM)= Trabajo Fin de Máster: 6 ECTS

      Prácticas Externas: 6 ECTS

       

      Las asignaturas optativas serán impartidas solo si hay un mínimo de 10 alumnos matriculados.

    • MATERIAL RESOURCES

      Sistemas de información específica para modalidad híbrida-semipresencial

      La Universidad Carlos III de Madrid cuenta con el sistema BlackBoard Collaborate para que el estudiante pueda seguir las sesiones online de manera síncrona, a la vez que una parte de sus compañeros lo hacen en el aula.

       

      REQUISITOS TECNOLÓGICOS

      El estudiante para poder hacer uso de esta herramienta debe contar con:

      • Un dispositivo con conexión a internet
      • Un dispositivo con micrófono y, de manera opcional, cámara para participar de forma activa en la sesión.

      BlackBoard Collaborate es una herramienta que funciona en un gran número de navegadores web que solo admite las dos versiones más recientes del canal estable de los siguientes navegadores: Chrome (recommendable en Windows, Linux y Mac, y para dispositivos móviles con Android), Firefox, Safari (recomendado para dispositivos móviles con iOS y iPadOS) 

      Para la utilización de este sistema, el estudiante necesita contar con el siguiente como equipamiento técnico:

      • Navegador web, tanto desde tu ordenador como desde tu móvil. No es necesario instalar ninguna aplicación adicional. Los navegadores compatibles son (recuerda que tienen que estar actualizados): *Chrome ó *Safari 11
      • Conexión a internet: preferiblemente por cable de red, si no wifi; como última opción usa los datos móviles, ya que se trata de un sistema de videoconferencia que consume bastantes datos. El tráfico se incrementa cuanto más vídeos y aplicaciones se compartan durante la sesión. 
      • Conexión mínima: (48 kbps audio + 360 kps x cada video + 500 kbps contenido) Con una conexión 3G podría ser suficiente, pero como depende da la cantidad de gente conectada, mejor, como hemos comentado anteriormente, conéctate desde una red que te garantice al menos 8Mbps 
      • Puedes comprobar tu calidad de conexión por ejemplo a través de esta página de test de velocidad.

       

      ACCESO A LAS SESIONES DE BLACKBOARD

      El estudiante podrá acceder a las sesiones creadas en BlackBoard Collaborate a través de dos opciones:

      • La plataforma de Aula Global con las credenciales del estudiante y una vez dentro ir al curso cuyas actividades deseen visualizar.
        En esta página el estudiante podrá acceder al listado de las actividades del curso y podrá ver tanto las sesiones activas, sesiones futuras y las sesiones grabadas para poderlas visualizar en caso de no hacerlo de manera síncrona.
      • A través del acceso directo mediante URL que el gestor o el docente le enviará a los estudiantes. En este caso accederán directamente al link facilitado.

      Aprendizaje Activo

      Las aplicaciones que se integran en Aula Global son:

      BlackBoard Collaborate

      Este sistema permite que el estudiante pueda seguir las sesiones síncronas a la vez que el resto de sus compañeros lo hacen en el aula, y participar de manera activa en las mismas, o bien acceder a ellas de forma posterior cuando el estudiante tiene distinto uso horarios. Dichas clases se grabarán con la autorización de los estudiantes presentes en el aula.

      Desde la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid para fomentar la participación activa de los estudiantes y profesorado se han puesto en marcha las siguientes herramientas para la dinamización de las clases:

      Wooclap

      Esta herramienta permite la participación por parte de los estudiantes en las clases mediante encuestas rápidas que pueden ser contestadas desde su dispositivo móvil. 

      Para el docente esta es una forma de comprobar si el contenido se está comprendiendo realmente, ya que los resultados de las encuestas se obtienen en tiempo real. Hay multitud de posibilidades: sondeos, cuestionarios, tormentas de ideas o búsqueda de imágenes son algunas de las opciones.

       

      Kaltura

      Se trata de un sistema de dinamización que permite incorporar contenidos multimedia en los cursos tanto al profesorado como a los alumnos. De esta manera, el personal docente es capaz de crear todo tipo de contenidos con audio y vídeo para añadir a sus clases. Los estudiantes también tienen su espacio donde subir contenido multimedia para poder incorporar a sus entregas.

      Formación a estudiantes en el uso de las herramientas docentes

      Al comienzo del curso, la Universidad ofrece a los estudiantes de nuevo ingreso sesiones formativas sobre el uso de las aplicaciones de enseñanza a distancia, coordinadas por el Vicerrectorado de Estrategia y Educación Digital de la UC3M. Recibirás instrucciones concretas y el calendario de estas formaciones por parte de tu gestor/a de Máster.

      Durante estas jornadas el estudiante recibe sesiones formativas sobre Aula Global (Moodle):

      • Como tener acceso a los contenidos y tareas que cada profesor sube a la aplicación
      • Utilización de los foros para la participación activa
      • Acceso a cuestionarios y calificaciones
