Programme Structure

The hybrid format allows you to personalize and make learning more flexible, through permanent "training".

In the hybrid classroom model, technology is integrated as one more element of the learning process that guarantees the continuity of training at all times. Your academic itinerary will begin with the core subjects (common to all masters), then the specialization subjects (specific to your master's degree) and in the optional module you can add subjects of your interest to design your own profile and cover any gaps by reinforcing the areas that you decide. In the end, the Final Master Project will follow.


Specific skills that are essential to work in a professional position. These subjects provide students with the theoretical knowledge and the ability to use the necessary tools. Their "knowhow".

Skills that develop students’ professional profile by working on critical thinking, management skills in leadership, communication, teamwork, and ethics. These subjects raise students' awareness and provide them with the necessary elements to be a global and responsible citizen in their professional and personal life.
