COOPERATION FOR TRANSFORMATION

Deusto established the University-Business relationship more than 100 years ago and since then it has remained a solid and permanent link. When we say business, we also mean social entities and administration. This relationship creates opportunities for students to learn in real environments in various formats. The presence of professionals in the classrooms, the contrast of the new degrees with the current needs of businesses or the support for the labour market insertion of students are examples of other realities that support this link.

Dual education, where work and study "merge"

null

Dual education, where work and study "merge"

In dual education, the learning and working process does not occur sequentially (first «studying» at the University and then «working» in the company) but simultaneously (studying and working at the same time). Dual does not mean more internships or more training, but responds to a new paradigm in which the university and the company share and tare co-responsible for students’ training. It involves co-designing the subject together, co- sharing it together and co-assessing it. Further information

"The international rankings value the University positively, not only for its excellent education and research at the service of a fairer society, but also for its direct connection with public administrations, companies and social organisations"

INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP

INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP

At Deusto we have been committed to promoting entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity in a systematic and rigorous way for years. All our degrees and most of our postgraduate courses include this transversal competence. Furthermore, we have a range of programmes focused on these areas and various activities focused on communication, awareness-raising and cooperation. All this allows each student to bring out the best in them and develop their innovative, creative and social construction skills when it comes to entrepreneurship and/or intra-entrepreneurship in companies and organisations.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit

At Deusto we are firmly committed to society, contributing to social welfare through people, guided at all times by our university project. We work to understand, measure, evaluate and manage our social impact.

Employment and Entrepreneurship Forum

The Employment and Entrepreneurship Forum is a milestone every year as it is an excellent meeting point for companies, professionals, the university and our students and graduates. These meeting spaces enable dialogue and knowledge of each other and are windows of opportunity for university students seeking employment and for alumni who may find themselves on the other side offering jobs. Also, we, as a university, have the opportunity to further strengthen ties and share projects with the organisations that join us.

BUILDING BRIDGES TO VOCATIONAL EDUCATION

BUILDING BRIDGES TO VOCATIONAL EDUCATION

At Deusto we are aware of the need for cooperation between stakeholders to provide answers to the increasingly complex social challenges we face. One of these pathways is through collaboration with various vocational education and training centres, thus enabling people who have completed a vocational education programme to further their learning at university.
