MORE INFORMATION
Important announcement about the master's policy in view of the global uncertainty brought about by the covid-19 pandemic
The Master in Economics guarantees that any enrolled student will have the possibility to complete each course and that we will attend to the different contingencies that may arise for each student. If for some reason the physical presence of some or all of the students in some of the classes is not possible, we will do anything it takes to ensure that teaching and evaluation can be conducted online while the contingency persists.
It is the responsibility of each student to have the appropriate equipment and internet connection to follow the online classes in case they cannot be physically present.
