The academic program will be complimented by different extracurricular activities and team-building events that will allow you to enjoy the vibrant cities of Madrid and Segovia. Please see below the complete program agenda.

ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN TRACK

Many companies are employing designers to tackle branding, strategic planning, and user-experience design. Do you want to discover why design matters more than ever? Come and explore the Architecture & Design track with an open mind and be ready to "roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty". Design is challenging, fun, necessary, creative, involves a lot of practice (and sometimes failure) and is enormously satisfying.

POLITICS, LAW & INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS TRACK

Are you interested in training you in critical areas such as conflict resolution, negotiation and strategy? Obtain a comprehensive look at International Relations as a global discipline, and look into fields such as Geopolitics, Foreign Policy and International Institutions. The track in Politics, Law & International Relations will let you unravel complexity by applying analytical reasoning and provide solutions for real world issues.

BUSINESS & ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRACK

Are you are an innovative thinker who is passionate about technology and entrepreneurship? Technology is a powerful force that drives products and services, operations, and economic growth. Enriched with an entrepreneurial mindset it can also be harnessed to improve peoples’ lives and contribute to social change. The track in Business & Technology offers you resources and flexibility to turn your ideas into reality and jump-start your business journey!

TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION TRACK

In the Technology & Innovation track students will be exposed to the key areas of knowledge that are changing the world, like digital transformation, big data, digital innovation, and disruptive technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics or 3D printing. In a world where the leading companies, the game-changers, are digital players, understanding the interplay of technology, innovation and management is a key capability that we will help you develop.
