UC3M Master’s Degrees: Internationalization and practical training

Másteres UC3M: Internacionalización y formación práctica

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is rated among the top centers of higher learning in Spain for pursuing a Master’s degree, according to the latest ranking, published for the eleventh consecutive year by the El Mundo newspaper.  According to the results of this report, 16 of the UC3M Master’s programs rank among the top five of the 50 specializations rated in the ranking. This guide presents the best 250 graduate programs among more than the one thousand analyzed; its aim being to make it easier for a future student to choose a program.

The UC3M is offering practical and interdisciplinary training to its graduate students through over one hundred master’s degree programs. Nearly one third of these courses are taught in English, which makes it possible to welcome students from all of the continents of the world. In fact, approximately one third of UC3M’s graduate students come from different points of the globe, which gives these studies a distinct international touch.

The “global recognition”, the “prestige of the institution” or the “quality of the theoretical and practical training” are some of the reasons that have inspired many students to carry out their graduate studies at UC3M.  An example is Khawla Mansour Alhaidari, who is registered in the University Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management at the Madrid-Puerta de Toledo Campus of UC3M (third from the left in the photograph).

After studying in Saudi Arabia, she decided to continue her studies here due to the reputation of UC3M, which, in her words “encourages collaboration and teamwork”. Besides, she explains, her stay at the university requires being involved in numerous practical, real-life cases, working with “diverse people from different cultures, experiences and working styles”.

At the same time, the Georgian Elene Sigua (fourth from the right), who studies the University Master’s Degree in Marketing after having studied in Prague, says that what she likes most is “to participate in creative campaigns” and that “ my stay at this university has changed my way of looking at life, because now I am ready to face any challenge”.

Practical training is one of the strong points for the German student Philpp Seifert (first on the right), a student in the University Master’s Degree in Business Administration: “We have to solve a lot of practical cases individually or in groups. Besides, I am taking part in curricular internships and I am learning a lot in them”.

Along the same lines, María Camila Gutiérrez, from Colombia, who is studying the same Master’s degree thanks to a grant from the Fundación Carolina, says that the analysis of these real cases is enriched by different points of view from students from different countries.  Patricia Monteiro, from Portugal, was surprised by the multi-culturalism at this university, which she chose for being close to her country of origin and for its prestige in Europe: “Thanks to this experience at UC3M”, she says, “I feel that I am a more cultured person because I am with students from different cultures every day”.
