    The Industrial Organisation Engineering profession has always had a high employability rate and
    expects this trend to continue in the future. The contents cover the technical, organisational and scientific knowledge currently required by the job market , as well as the generic skills most valued by companies.


    We count on the close participation of leading industrial and business companies. A significant percentage of the teaching will be given by professionals from industry and business. We also have the collaboration of faculty from the Deusto Business School (DBS).


    99.87% of Spanish companies are SMEs, a size of company that requires engineering graduates with transversal competences, capable of organising the company as a whole.


    The new economic context of companies makes it essential to adopt continuous improvement strategies, based on quality, knowledge management, innovation and permanent upgrading of all products and organisational processes in order to ensure their competitiveness and survival.


    On the international level, there are universities in most EU countries that offer similar degrees in terms of name, graduate profile and academic content (business management, production, logistics, sustainability and information technology).


    Graduates in Industrial Engineering and in other branches (Computer Science,
    Telecommunications, Electronics and Automation, etc.) have direct access to the master's degree. This programme is a perfect complement to their more technical engineering training.


    This master's degree is also designed to facilitate access to doctoral studies for those students who intend to pursue a professional research career. In accordance with Royal Decree 1393/2007, the completion of this master's degree gives direct access to an official doctoral programme. The research activity (projects, doctoral theses and scientific publications) most directly linked to the degree is carried out in the Industrial Organisation and Logistics research area.


    This master's degree also includes training in generic competences such as:
    verbal communication, written communication, learning orientation, problem solving, ethical sense and teamwork.


    This official Master’s degree has ANECA accreditation (National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation). The curriculum has been asessed by the Assessment Committees made up of national and international experts from the academic field
    , practicing professionals and students related to this field of study.


    Students will use the same software tools as working tools as those used by industrial and consulting companies in their plants and technical offices in the processes of process design, systems, management of company areas...
