Methodologies 

Our program is developed on the basis of a diverse set of dynamic methodologies, which provide an ideal basis from which to achieve the learning goals designed for the program and each of its courses. The different methodologies help students to build a sense of responsibility, which will allow them to activate their own learning.

  • The use of specialized programs: Students will use specialized software in class, including, for example, SAS Enterprise Miner, powerful data mining software, to create accurate predictive and descriptive models for large volumes of data.
  • Master classes: These focus on theoretical approaches, which the professors enhance with examples, helping students to understand the topic.
  • Case studies: National and international case studies, which allow students to cover different areas of the organization in real situations and through interaction with classmates and professors to develop critical and analytical thinking, as well as communication, argumentation, and persuasion skills.
  • PBL (Problem Based Learning): Knowledge is acquired by questioning in order to problematize issues helping students to incorporate such knowledge into their own mental structures. This methodology includes the opportunity to research and transfer previous learning to new situations. 
  • Workshops: Through practical exercises, students strengthen their skills in specific topics.
  • Reports and projects: Students have to research information, analyze concepts, and make decisions in order to incorporate research methodologies into management processes.
  • Simulation game: Students are exposed to the exercise of generating a strategy and designing different mechanisms and tools in order to control strategy execution. They will understand and scale the risks inherent to decision-making processes and the impact of corrective measures. They will use management simulation software to effectively integrate and consider most of the areas of an organization, their interrelations, and the complexities when it comes to implementing strategies.
