MASTER IN PUBLIC AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Edition 2024-25

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE

We live amidst a change of era that requires new paradigms and responses to today’s most pressing global issues. A period where modern liberal democracies are at risk and new ideological principles are not yet defined. A unique historic moment of multiple economic, social and geopolitical uncertainties, as well as scientific and technological disruptions. The question of what it means to be human is more answered than ever.

We are living hence amazing times, times in which organizations and governments are called to work together to bring light upon a world deeply in need by building mutually-beneficial relationships, and working towards innovative solutions—all for the common good of our global society.

This is not an era where government and business are run as usual. Too much is at stake—in our world, in our organizations, in our communities. This is an era for virtuous individuals, forward thinkers with diverse interests and backgrounds, dynamic and versatile professionals who are ready to lead meaningful and impactful change.

Such an exciting task requires a new kind of leader whose qualities are built on a deep global and multi-disciplinary understanding of our reality in order to provide innovative approaches that transform our world for the better.

Are you one of those change-makers who want to transform the world?

    EXPLORE THE UNIVERSITY

    The University Francisco de Vitoria was established with the conviction that universites must do “something more” than providing professional training for the workplace. It is a place to explore fundamental questions about the world we live in, to develop new understandings about the challenges and opportunities we face and to provide society with adequate solutions to navigate the current generational change, all in a context of deep intellectual friendship.

    We are a Catholic University. We believe that truth exists, and that it can be known, reached and shared. The most fundamental truth is the absolute dignity of all human beings, which includes freedom and the capacity to pursue the common good emerge. We believe in a moral obligation to work together to improve the world.

    THE UFV EXPERIENCE

    We raise a community from the very outset, understanding that the team’s involvement is essential when it comes to achieving positive results from within the group itself.

    In order to achieve this, we offer an integrated itinerary  throughout the duration of the course, where you will go through different stages and enjoy activities that broaden and complement your Master’s experience, with the aim of getting students to think beyond the simple day-to-day business of the here and now.

    Along this journey, the main goal is a revolutionary change of approach, aiming for different, meaningful professional practices.

    Through our partnerships with various multilateral organizations, governmental organizations, nonprofits and private institutions, you will gain access to the international stage and get the chance to put your learning into practice in real-world situations while gaining irreplaceable experiences and connections.
