Commitment to the success of each student
o The University School is committed to the progress of each student, both during their formative stage in the centre and once the degree is attained, for the purposes of continue training or to access employment.
o To this end, the centre uses different tools:
- Small groups: the groups have approximately 40 students, which in some subjects are divided into two and up to three subgroups.
- Complementary activities: Throughout the year different activities are carried out intended to help students in their personal development, their vision of the profession and the future prospects.
- Personalised follow-up: The centre appoints a tutor who is aware of the progress of each student, identifying difficulties and advising on how to overcome same.
- Labour Exchange: The close relationship with the companies and the in-depth knowledge of the students which enables to manage with great efficiency and agility the employment opportunities.
Combining theory and practice
- The majority of the subjects are developed by carrying out practical work, in certain actual cases proposed by the companies themselves
- Interdisciplinary nature: It is usual for different subjects to be worked on in the same case study, affording the student a vision more in line with reality
- The student is assessed during the entire teaching period of each subject, with different objectives being contemplated throughout same:
- Practical, individual or group work
- Theoretical or practical tests
- Class contributions
- Assessment of participation and attitude
- As a general rule, the final exam fee cannot exceed 50%
- The tutorial system is designed to facilitate and provoke the student's best learning. Prior to the detection of doubts or difficulties the initiative of the tutoring can arise from both the student and the teacher, always with the objective of proactivity and anticipation of problems.
High-level faculty teaching staff
All faculty teaching staff warrant a solvent academic experience with an average of over 18 years of experience.
Over 70% of faculty teaching staff combine their teaching role with a professional activity at the managerial level, in a manner that the reality of the companies, their needs and responses are conveyed to the students.
This centre has always understood that globalisation is an unstoppable and inevitable phenomenon, and that companies, including SMEs, have a real challenge ahead as regards internationalisation.
