On the other hand we remind you that Universidad CEU San Pablo has also a Transforming Skills Program specifically designed for Post-graduate students which objective is to streamline students’ employability for them to successfully face the challenges of this Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous World (VUCA).
This academic program is organized through eight skills: Self-knowledge, communication, teamwork, innovation, solidarity, entrepreneurship, growth and leadership.
The essential idea serving as grounds for this program is the mobilization of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values through a reflection, anticipation and action process. Education is provided following an eminently practical methodology and related to the real world. It is based on a mixture of practical and dynamic activities, theoretical models, self-assessment and feedback between equals and spaces for reflection. Students have a mentor specialized in leadership who helps them and guides them during the educational process with different active didactic techniques.
