Teaching method

The classes will have theoretical and practical components, with both lectures and practical sessions, where
individual and group analysis of case studies and results will take place. The seminars are to be organized in
modules and specialists from businesses, organizations and academia will be invited to participate in some
areas of application.

Evaluation method

Assessment includes the compilation of a portfolio in one of the application areas of this
subject or on one of the themes of the program plus an oral presentation on the same.
