The grouping of subjects into different subject areas reflects the different disciplines comprising Business Economics. The diversity of the Master’s programme ensures that students have a minimum knowledge of each subject area (as some subjects within them are compulsory) and at the same time it offers students the possibility to specialise in certain areas, (strategic, marketing and accounting and financial), according to their preference.

Finally, this programme offers the possibility of three intensive pathways, which will apply when three specific subjects from each subject area are taken, as indicated below:

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF KNOWLEDGE

Students may opt out of taking the pathway indicated above and choose their subjects freely according to their preferences. There is no set requirement for access to a specific pathway.


STUDYING YOUR MASTER ON A PART-TIME BASIS

 

MASTER'S DEGREE FINAL PROJECT (TFM)

All official Master's studies will conclude with the elaboration and defence of a Master's Degree Final Project that must be carried out during the second semester and will be oriented to the evaluation of competences associated with the degree.

The TFM will be an original and autonomous personal work, whose elaboration can be individual or coordinated, that each student will realize under a Tutor’s guidance and will allow the students to expound in a comprehensive form the training contents received and the competences acquired.

The TFM will consist of the elaboration and public defence of a paper, project or individual work. The aim of this work is the integration of all the knowledge acquired during the Master.

The memory of the TFM may be written and defended in any of the official languages of the Valencian Community or in any other official language of the European Union, whenever the Department's proposal so specifies.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

 

According to the Regulations of the University of Alicante, the following requirements must be complied to have access to official taught Master’s degrees:

  1. To be in possession of a SPANISH OFFICIAL GRADUATE DEGREE CERTIFICATE or other issued by an institution of higher education  within the EHEA (European Higher Education) that enables the holder to have access  to Master’s degrees in the issuing.
  2. To be in possession of an officially approved  FOREIGN HIGHER EDUCATION DEGREE CERTIFICATE that had been recognised as equal to the degree that allows access to the requested studies.
  3. To be in possession of a UNIVERSITY DEGREE CERTIFICATE obtained in a University or Higher Education Institution of COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE EHEA, without the prior approval of their studies. In this case, the following should be considered:
  • Non- recognised degree certificates shall require a technical report showing an equivalence statement issued by the University of Alicante (ContinUA – Continuing Education Centre), for which the corresponding fee should be paid.
  • Access through this way does under no circumstances imply prior official approval of the holder’s degree certificate, nor its recognition for purposes other than studying a master's degree.

 

ADMISSION AND ASSSESSMENT CRITERIA

 

The selection process will be based on a 10-point assessment, distributed as follows:

 

1.      Entry qualifications: 4 points maximum.

  • Business & Administration Management (graduates from the old 5-year degree or new degree:  4 points
  • 3-year degree in Business & Administration Management.
       Economics (graduates from the old 5-year degree or new degree): 3.5 points.
       Industrial and related Engineering: 3.5 points.
  • Tourism and Engineering Technology: 3 points.
  • Law, Work Sciences, Labour Relations, Publicity and Public Relations: 2.5 points.
  • Other Social Sciences: 2 points.
  • Other degrees: 1 point.

 2.      Academic record of entry qualifications. 4 points maximum.

           According to this calculation rule:

Points = (Grade Point Average – 5)*0.8

Students will certify their marks via the copy of their official transcript of records, which should preferably include the average grade point achieved.
In those cases where the transcript of records is either not attached, their average mark not stated, or is not calculable, an average mark of 5 points will be considered so that the mark in this section shall be zero.

 

3.      Professional experience in business and administration management.  1 point maximum

One point will be allocated whenever experience exceeds one year in jobs related to the purpose of this degree.

An updated curriculum vitae along with working life information or accreditation of such experience should be submitted.

 

 4.       Eligibility of candidates to the Master’s degree. 1 point maximum.

Students should fill in a questionnaire. This questionnaire should be answered by the candidate before the pre-registration deadline. Candidates can request such a questionnaire in advance via email at master.ade@ua.es.

In any case, students will be required to achieve competence in Spanish, which should be accredited  on pre-registration by submitting an official certificate proving their B1 level in the event that Spanish is not their native language. If the student has competence in Spanish but cannot credit it, they should contact the Master’s course coordinator to arrange an interview (via online or in person) via mail (master.ade@ua.es) in which this essential requirement shall be assessed.

In the event that the language level is not verified nor they arrange for interview, the assessment of the student’s  academic record will not be proceeded with.

Pursuant to the Committee decision, those academic records that do not reach the minimum score established will not be admitted.

For any clarification on the point-based assessment, please contact master.ade@ua.es
