      Graduates of any academic qualification are eligible to register on the master's degree course, irrespective of their area of specialisation. 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.
