Graduates should be able to use interdisciplinary techniques and expertise to facilitate the implementation of international projects; identify and address the needs of different cultural environments; improve communication between business cultures and deal with intercultural situations effectively, leveraging integration and growth; develop culturally aware and sustainable business ventures; know local customs, their opportunities and obstacles for the global business environment; carry out scientific work with a solid practical, technical, theoretical and methodological basis.

In line with a policy of self-employment, the MA in Intercultural Studies for Business  views the knowledge of culture as a profitable field, indispensable to any company, both as a tool and as an agent in business and economic growth. The comparative study of cultures allows graduates to adapt and develop professionally in different work contexts. The MA pays special attention to postcolonial cultures and to the current flows of business and decision making centers to China, the Maghreb, the Middle East, Hispano-America, and the Commonwealth, among many others. This MA articulates intercultural studies with economics, communication, politics, history, management, and media arts, to create a professional profile with growing demand in business, publishing, communication, cultural management and political and administrative organizations, in different fields and institutions, within the global context.
