Salidas profesionales:

One of the key aims of the course is to provide students with an excellent training towards a labour market increasingly demanding emerging with unsual strength in the world of protocol due to the growing interest both in the public institutions and the private companies to provide an outward image of efficiency and rigor that transmits reliably the internal values of the organization.

The greatest concern of the Department for Protocol over the years the course has been taught, not to mention all those willing to expand their knowledge or still their curiosity, has been precisely how to guide the students and train them to perform a gainful activity requiring a comprehensive and varied education. The "career goal" is present in all the efforts of the Department for Protocol and the teachers, many of them excellent and highly qualified professionals of the field, who address their lessons and lectures to issues raised by the practical development of protocol. The goal seems to be satisfied with a double and undeniable evidence. First, the high number of students who, occupying relevant positions in protocol cabinets, offices and departments, not only in Spain, but also abroad, mainly in Latin America (Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Colombia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Santo Domingo) as well as in the former countries of Eastern Europe, are willing to acquire training in protocol and knowing that this discipline is taught at the University of Oviedo, both at its classrooms and at the Diplomatic School of Madrid, attend the course with a desire to receive useful lessons and get a specific degree of prestige that would be unable to get at their Universities. Secondly, the equally significant number of students, who find a job in this field after completion of our course.
