This master's degree is interuniversitary and includes the participation of eight universities, making it a powerful programme compared to others in Spain and a guarantee of prestige. You can enrol in all modules at the UAB, or choose to take some of them at other participating universities through our interuniversity mobility programmes. This master's degree is also flexible and allows you to combine studies and work, since you can choose to complete it in one or two years.
