  • Master's Degree in Quality Management
    imatge de la noticiaFrom the perspective of its social and economic impact, the increasing application of quality management by organisations from developed and emerging economies has become one of the drivers of their competitiveness. Moreover, it has spread throughout Europe not only to private businesses but also, in recent years, to sectors traditionally disinclined to introduce management innovations, such as health services, universities and schools, as well as to public administration. This expansion in the scope of the application of quality management gives us a first idea of the power and utility of this form of management and, therefore, of the existence of career opportunities in this field, which is closely related to the existing demand for the postgraduate studies presented here. The implementation of the international standard known as ISO 9001 has facilitated and stimulated the spread of quality management. This model, designed to help forward the implementation of a management system that facilitates continuous improvement and customer satisfaction is becoming a requirement for organisations to participate in developed markets, at both national and international levels, especially when it comes to supplying goods and services to other organisations. On the other hand, it is important to note the dissemination of quality management carried out by the European Foundation for Quality, that through the EFQM Excellence Model has promoted and implemented its advanced approach of total quality management. This approach incorporates a strategic perspective that emphasises the importance of customer satisfaction, leadership, human resources, and the improvement of product processes and design. The benefits resulting from its implementation are improved customer service, greater managerial ability, greater commitment of managers and employees, and greater consideration of the importance of learning, indispensable for continuous improvement.

  • Master's Degree in Economic Globalisation: International Trade Management
    imatge de la noticiaThe Master's Degree in Economic Globalisation: International Trade Management offers the knowledge, skills and tools needed for establishing and developing the lines of policies and international commercial strategy that most adapted to the needs of a business with vocation to elaborate or improve a solid process of internationalisation. All this, reinforced by the presence of a significant part that involves the globalisation process of the enterprises, giving also answer to the needs of national and international institutions, of promotion, regulation and international business analysis. The current economic situation involves a challenge of exceptional magnitude for the public institutions, the financial entities and the non-financial enterprises and therefore, for all the professionals who assume responsibilities of these requests. These professionals are forced to respond efficiently to factors such as: the need to amend the strategies of internationalisation; the constant pressure of an increased international competition (but also of greater opportunities in new markets); the responsibility to discriminate among a multiplicity of investment options – real and financial -, in many occasions of high valuation difficulty; the obligation to study the weaknesses, modify and adapt in accounting, auditing and regulatory matters; the convenience of coordination of micro and macroeconomic policies. Hence, the new generations who wish to incorporate to that international labour market, global in its working, in its responsibilities and its objectives, must be prepared for the endless list of challenges – on the same level as the opportunities that they face. For this, they are given a specific training with an explicitly international orientation that deepen their previous knowledge and are trained to immerse themselves in that new economic world.

  • Master's Degree in Economic Policy and Public Economics
    imatge de la noticiaEconomic policy studies the relevance of state intervention in the economy. Currently, there are no pure market economies; on the contrary, contemporary societies have mixed economies that we can’t understand without taking into account the presence of the state in economy. In short, economic activities take place in an institutional framework shaped by state regulation and intervention. Economic policy is not only the study of a part of the economy, it reflects a perspective of the operation of all economic systems as a whole, since all economic activities are developed in an institutional framework defined and regulated by state intervention. This Master’s degree is research-oriented. First, its academic relevance is reflected on its current potential demand. It is intended for students who want to deepen their knowledge in Economic Policy and Public Economics and who have completed degrees in the field of Economics, Business Management and Administration, Tourism, Marketing, International Business and Finance and Accounting, but also for graduates in Social Sciences such as Law, Sociology, Political Science, Labour Relations, Journalism, etc. Second, this Master’s degree offers the opportunity to develop research skills and qualifies students to write a doctoral thesis in the framework of doctoral studies. It is therefore of interest to students who wish to pursue a professional research or academic career. The Master’s Degree in Economic Policy and Public Economics is also relevant for the professional field. On the one hand, it allows students to develop research skills that qualifies them to write a doctoral thesis and, therefore, opens the way to an academic career. On the other hand, it is a training platform to develop a professional research career outside the University, in research centres, consulting firms, companies and organisations in the social, business and public sector (such as the Regional Ministry for Finance and Employment, Valencian Institute of Finance, Feria de Muestras de Valencia, Chamber of Commerce, Institute for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Centre for the Study of Social and Cooperative Economy, trade unions, NGOs, etc.).
