The Master’s degree aims to arm professionals with a well-developed understanding of the competencies associated with information technology, create experts in the use of cutting-edge technology on the market, but also make it so they can easily adapt to different types of technologies and providers. These professionals should be able to assume responsibility for planning tasks and projects, design, and problem-solving.
Who is this for?
The Master is aimed at graduates of Universities and Business Schools, especially with degrees in disciplines related to Information Technology (Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Engineering, Chemistry, etc.).
In cases where the applicant doesn’t have a university degree and would like to earn a professional certification, it is possible to be accepted if they can certify that they have 2-3 years of experience in Information Technology at an intermediate level within their company.

The Master’s degree aims to arm professionals with a well-developed understanding of the competencies associated with information technology, create experts in the use of cutting-edge technology on the market, but also make it so they can easily adapt to different types of technologies and providers.
These professionals should be able to assume responsibility for planning tasks and projects, design, and problem-solving.
With these characteristics students will be prepared for technical positions with oversight responsibilities where they could develop some of the following abilities:
- Analysing needs and making suggestions about how communication technologies can improve businesses.
- Coming up with solutions to cover business needs.
- Implementing communication solutions in business settings.
- Technical support for communication in critical and/or complex settings.
The Master’s in Communication Technology programme is made up of 5 modules, plus a final capstone project.
The first four modules centre around the development of technical abilities in various fields of communications as well as the development of skills in design and problem solving related to the technologies studied.
The fifth module is designed to equip students with the basic tools to take on research projects.
The final Project is very important. In it, the student must demonstrate the skills that they’ve learned and developed over the course of the programme through a research and development project.
The contents of the different modules are compatible with some of the most well-recognized professional certifications in the world of communications. Students will be encouraged and helped to obtain some of these certifications.

Information and Communication Technologies
We have worked hard to offer you the most secure, efficient, and probably one of the most complete educations in the market of information and communication technology that includes both a solid foundation as well as information about the newest innovations (apps, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, video games, and new programming environments). An offering created by professionals, for professionals and future professionals, without all the bureaucracy.
Internships and Professional Development
All of our university student programmes, both undergraduate and Masters, include the possibility of taking a business internship during the course of their studies for the development of professional career plans. Additionally, you can do an international internship if you so choose.
For international students, it is necessary to have a minimum of a B1 level of Spanish to enrol in their first course. In the event that you do not already have that level of Spanish, the university offers the possibility of enrolling in an intensive Spanish language course to obtain the required certification. Once completed the student will be prepared to pass a C1 level exam from the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
