Our International Week has the purpose of giving, to business school graduates and current students, an internationalization-at-home experience. This will be done with international lecturers who will teach about subjects related to various areas of the management field. Likewise, it is an opportunity for other professionals to have a novel international academic experience, generate new relations and develop global management competences, in line with the current international trends in the business field.
A blended program, in which the lectures will be simultaneously virtual and physically delivered. Virtual students will be connected to the classroom using TEAMS platform. Each of the lectures includes a practical component with workshops or visits aligned with the academic content.

Modules can be also taken individually if sits available. Modules are: Entrepreneurship and Innovation (English), Experiential Marketing (Spanish), Corporate Strategy (Spanish) and International Management (Spanish).
