Acceptance to Master's Program

Applicant Profile 

The Double Master’s Program in International Marketing in a Digital Enviroment / International Marketing & Sales Management of the IQS School of Management is aimed at recent university graduates, economics, business administration, advertising and public relations, tourism. Also engineers as well as other fields, with a good level of written and spoken English. Previous professional experience is not a requirement.
 
Applicants to this master's program may already have acquired basic knowledge of marketing and basic accounting and corporate finance. For those students who have not acquired any such skills, additional orientation sessions will be organized (Marketing Principles and Strategies, 6 ECTS, and Accounting for Decision Making, 3 ECTS). The option of additional academic specific modules will be considered if necessary.

 

Admission

In order to access the Double Master’s Program in International Marketing in a Digital Enviroment / International Marketing & Sales Management, students will need to have obtained a Spanish university degree or a qualification issued by a higher education institution established within the framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), accrediting access to Master's degrees in the country issuing the qualification.
 
Students with degrees issued outside the EHEA will also be able to enroll in the master's degree without the need to validate their undergraduate coursework, after IQS has ensured a level of education equivalent to the corresponding officially recognized Spanish University degree. The country issuing the qualification must be capable of issuing access to graduate level studies. Access via this route will by no means require validation of the qualification of the person interested and its recognition will not be used for any other purposes than for the enrollment in a master's program.
 

 

Transfer requirements

The Permanent Committee of the Academic Board, which examines each applicant and establishes the recognition of credits, will handle the admission of students from any national or foreign University system, that have studied at the undergraduate level within the EHEA framework.
 
In the case of students from EU member states, or from countries with which Spain has established international agreements, students are required to have a qualification enabling them to undertake graduate level University studies in their home country.  Students from outside of the EU, or from countries that do not have an established agreement with Spain, must have passed the corresponding University entrance exam.
 

 

Completion Requirements

Students must have earned all the credits undertaken in order to obtain the master's degree.

During the academic year, students will normally have two opportunities to pass exams: in February and in June – for the first semester subjects – and in June and in September – for the second semester subjects, or for subjects that last two consecutive semesters.

If a student does not pass an exam on the second attempt, two additional opportunities will be allowed. In the event that the student still has not obtained a pass in the subject, they can apply to the Permanent Committee of the Academic Board for a final opportunity to take the exam, justifying their position. The Permanent Committee of the Academic Board will examine the student's case and may complement this information by consulting the master's coordinator. If a student does not obtain a pass after having been granted an extra opportunity to take the exam, they will have to abandon the master's program.
