    The globalization of markets and the change in competition policies in the industrial sectors have caused national and international industrial structures to undergo a great deal of change in the short and medium term. Therefore, in most developed and developing countries there is a high demand for experts in Industrial Economics. The objective of the Master is to produce such experts through solid training in three key areas: Industrial Organization, Business Economics and Quantitative Economic Analysis.

    The Master is a two year program. The first year consists of basic courses taught in English, which all the specialties have in common. The second year offers core courses in Industrial Organization, and three areas of specialization as well as a dissertation.

We recommend to use a level DELE A2 (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) issued by the Instituto Cervantes, or equivalent.

In addition four more courses are offered starting on September, December, February, and May.

    Qualified students could apply for financial support by the Erasmus Program

     

    Option A: European Mobility with recognition of ECTS

    Selected students in this program will have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad with credit recognition (ECTS) in any of the European universities that the University and the Master has exchange agreements with. The stay will be in the first semester of the second year. This is an opportunity to obtain a unique international curriculum. Students will receive formal recognition for their academic study period abroad in the transcript of records.

     

    Option B: International Complement

    At the end of the regular master program, students may opt to spend a placement period of 3-6 months in another European school studying complementary disciplines, such as Marketing, Finance, Management, Information Systems or Accountancy, or just deepen into Economics.

    Having the opportunity to go to another European university within an international program allows the students to complement their training, in addition to having the experience of living in a different country, as well as in a different university environment.

    Students receive formal recognition for their academic study period abroad in the transcript of records and in the degree certificate.

    Currently, the University has exchange agreements at Master level in the area of Economics and Business Administration with the following universities:
