Presentation

This Master is implemented as a serious, rigorous and quality starting point, where experiences and academic models from Europe, the United States and Latin America come together, for professionals in global action and international cooperation.

After four editions of the MGA in its shared URJC-UPEI design, this new itinerary of the MGA opens in its Latin American branch centered in Mexico, thanks to the academic collaboration of the Benito Juárez Autonomous University of Oaxaca (UABJO) (with its Faculty of Economics ). This itinerary allows the MGA to expand in the study of the interrelationships between local development and economic globalization, taking advantage of the specialization of the UABJO faculty and the possibility of carrying out professional practices (not curricular) on the ground in Oaxaca.

The teaching staff is made up of doctors and professors from the URJC and the UABJO, as well as from different universities around the world, and professionals and experts in decision-making in public policies, including staff from the United Nations/Council of Europe and other organizations. global and/or regional international judges and representatives of civil society organizations and the private sector, as well as serving diplomats.

Students will have free range to select a topic of their choice based on interests, previous areas of study, and research to advance their academic profile and career path. To carry out their TFM, each student will have an assigned academic tutor (related to the selected topic) to support the student and guarantee the quality of the TFM. Extraordinarily, and with prior authorization from the Master's Department, a student who has carried out a professional practice will be able to take advantage of its experience and -with an enrichment of analysis of the acquired learning- will be able to present it under the format and work of TFM.
