Master’s Final Project

The Master's Final Project (TFM) in the degrees adapted to the EHEA is an assignment that each student must complete to finish the degree. In this Master’s Degree the TFM has a teaching load equivalent to 8 ECTS. The TFMs are based on the use of all the contents and competences acquired throughout Modules 1, 2 and 3. They will be developed through access to secondary sources of information (publications, Internet, etc.) and, where appropriate, primary sources of information (interviews, surveys, data collection in the companies themselves, etc.), under the supervision of a teacher-tutor member of the MBA teaching team. This teacher-tutor provides the supervision and the necessary tutorials for each student. In addition, professors from other degrees, universities, companies or from regional, national or even international institutions with the approval of the TFM will participate in activities of support.

For the assessment the following will be taking as reference: the TFM Director’s report, the document submitted by the student and the presentation of the project before a jury, according to the UPCT regulations.

The processing of the TFM will start in the corresponding application through the Services Portal provided that the student is enrolled in TFM.
