Introduction

For partner companies:

How can a company or institution benefit from professional collaboration with the Master's degree in Competitiveness & Innovation?

The companies or institutions that wish to experience the value added by the Master’s students’ profiles or the content of the studies can take part in the Master’s degree in Competitiveness & Innovation in two ways:

1.- By proposing a real-life challenge to be studied in the Master's degree subjects

Do you have ideas that you haven’t had time to work on? Would you like to explore the potential of a certain idea? Or would you like to compile market information, publications or set an international benchmark based on the idea? Would you like to analyse what is required to successfully implement it in your organisation or what further competences and requirements you should develop? We will give you an answer in 2 months.

t
The business or institution’s steps in this process What the Master’s programme does
Put forth a real-life challenge to improve competitiveness and innovation in your firm (prepare the information and attend two one-hour-long presentations (face to face or virtual) A group of students will work on the proposal to find a specific way to meet the challenge in two months (academic calendar), with the supervision and support of lecturers on the programme.
