  • It encourages the formation of friendships and professional ties amongst participants and with the academic and support staff - professionals in their own right - whose engagement with the group goes far beyond merely imparting classes.
  • The Master’s counts on an extensive network of first-class professionals whose reputation improves the employability of participants.
  • The Master’s facilitates long-term work experience(between 6-12 months) in the field of personnel management in innovative companies in the area.

  • The Master’s has an eminently positive impact on the organisations where internships or projects are realised as a result of the transfer of knowledge and suggested improvements and their implementation. We have an academic team, collaborators and support staff of enormously human calibre that support and encourage each participant along every step of the way.
