  • Career Management Skills and Employability

Vicente Sabater and Susana de Juana will give a seminar on “Career management skills and employability”. In this course our goal is to have the students reflect on their current skills and potential talents that they can offer to the labor market, whether they choose a career inside or outside academia.  We want to encourage students to be aware of their own strengths and weaknesses when thinking of career possibilities. With this information, they should be able to start designing their employment strategy.

  • Commercial Awareness

Mayo De Juan will conduct the seminar entitled “Commercial Awareness”. Having the right skills and experience isn’t always enough to secure you the job, you must know how to market yourself effectively to really get noticed. If you’re looking for your ideal job, you’ll need to release your inner sales person to really catch a prospective employer’s eye. In other words, you need personal marketing and strategies for your target audience and position your brand to meet with their demands. In this course you will learn how to do it.

  • Intellectual Property Management

Eva Toledo will give a seminar on “Intellectual Property Management”. The goal of this seminar is to offer a wide approach to creativity and innovation and how its protection could develop a competitive advantage sustainable over time. In the current context being the first is not enough anymore. We must look for offering a different value for consumers. IP constitutes a legal barrier for competitors but also physiological barriers. It is essential to know how to protect the results of innovation and creativity process, if possible, in order to get the exclusive right to show a unique position.
