Official Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering and MBA (MIT-MBA) Double-degree program

Logo audit medianoThe MEM program (Master of Engineering Management) is composed of the MA in Telecommunications Engineering and the MA in Business Administration (MBA). The aim of this degree program is to train the new leaders of the 21st-century ICT sector. This program, one of the first postgraduate courses in Europe to combine engineering, technology and business administration, is founded on the same principles that inspired the members of the US consortium MEMPC.

Multidisciplinary training in engineering and business administration, together with strong focus on problem-solving skills, ensures these budding professionals a brilliant career in any organization that looks to apply ICT to improve production processes.

This program combines the traditional engineering training offered by the ICAI School of Engineering with ICADE's experience in business management and administration. This combination creates a professional profile that offers an added value to companies in industrial, technological and business sectors and sets our graduates apart, and all through a practice-based program in which students play a leading role. In addition, the program is perfectly adapted to a society in which internationalization, and communication and leadership skills are indispensable for achieving professional success.

The program is designed so that students can develop the skills and abilities acquired on both degrees in two years. The increased workload, characteristic of a double-degree program, requires students to possess strong organizational, study and work-related skills. Throughout the program, students are constantly guided and supported by their lecturers and tutors.

Students who complete the MA can register with Spain's Professional Association of Telecommunications Engineers and work in the legally regulated profession of Telecommunications Engineering.
