    Professional Opportunities

    Master's Degrees in Social Business Responsibility improve, first and foremost, the chances of students who take them, by showing the labor market that they are knowledgeable on how enterprises work, with a practical and teamwork-oriented point of view, alongside the knowledge derived from the Master's Degree they had previously taken. Moreover, internships in enterprises improve the chances of being employed afterwards.

    In fact, the interest of the Postgraduate program here proposed resides in its utility to increase the professional capacities of the students, aiming at rounding up their formation in the field of business management. They give them the human resources and necessary skills to take decisions in the business and institutional fields in an environment that is more complex and dynamic than ever. The goal is to facilitate job searching and promotion inside the enterprise.

    Precisely, the professional venues of an education program related to Social Business Responsibility are directly related to the following work fields: sustainability management or social responsibility at the enterprise, consulting specialized in business sustainability and social business responsibility, national or international cooperation, foundations, associations, NGOs, environmental management consulting, equality programs and units, diversity management, accessibility, security and health in enterprises and organizations, and coorporative communication, among the most noteworthy ones.
