Master's Programmes

Business & Management (1)



The UPCT was established in the year of 1998.


Even though the science of engineering and economics have such a long tradition in Cartagena, the UPCT is the youngest University throughout Spain.


Consequently, it is not surprising that many students across the world have already been registered for one of our master programs or have already applied for an admission to do a doctorate with us. We would like to continue to set a high value to an international atmosphere. Our international commitment was encouraged by the corporation with the University of Murcia, in the year of 2010.

Student Reviews

That's not serious
Anonymous rated 1.5 out of 5 stars
Spanis universities are not on the top of Europe, everybody knows that, but in this case is still worst. Old proffesors, who do not care about their students, old instalations, small libraries, inefficient staff and all of these in a non student-friendly city. There is some good proffesionals in ther but they are not te most.
