Master in Global Entrepreneurial Management

This experience is unlike anything else. Thanks to the Master in Global Entrepreneurial Management (MGEM) you can enjoy many unique experiences all in one year. This Master's Programme takes place in three different cities, which allows students to live on three continents, get to know new cultures and make contacts across the world. You can read our interview with Guillermo, a student from the MGEM class of 2018-2019, below.

What would you highlight about the MGEM?

The people in my class are incredible. After living with them all year long, they become your family. All the professors are great and the three cities in the Master's, Barcelona, Taipei, and San Francisco, are exciting cities to study and learn about the business ecosystem in each country.

How did you handle having to move to three different countries in one year?

Although it was challenging, I liked the fact that I was constantly moving. It wasn't an issue for me or for most of my classmates as we all love to travel. It's important for us to know how to adapt to these situations because we may have to move for professional reasons in the future.

How do you see your professional future now?

My goal is to join a multinational company. I'd like to work in the marketing or sales department of a company in the automotive sector.

Do you believe that MGEM will help you to achieve this goal?

Yes, of course. At the moment I am having interviews in well-known companies that I wouldn't have had access to if I hadn't done this Master's Degree.

With the MGEM you open your mind and leave your comfort zone. That's precisely what companies are looking for these days. They really value if you know how to work with other cultures and are comfortable in a global environment. You also really improve your English as you will have to speak with your professors and classmates in English and carry out projects entirely in English.

What do you think about the content of the MGEM?

This Master in Global Entrepreneurial Management is not focused on a single field, like marketing or sales for instance, but rather it addresses many topics related to finance, marketing, and cross-cultural management, where we work on managing cultural differences in the workplace.

You do the Master's Thesis in Taipei and do Consulting Projects in Barcelona and San Francisco. In the Consulting Projects we split groups of four people and we are assigned a company where we work as consultants. In my case, I worked at BASF, a German company, where I had the opportunity to have my first contact with the business world. During my time with BASF, I had to travel to Murcia to visit some clients and write a report to be submitted to the CEO once we returned to Barcelona. We did something similar in San Francisco, but with start-ups.

What did you like most about the MGEM? 

Without a doubt, the possibility to travel across the world. We spend four months in each country, so we have to move around a lot in one year. I also took advantage of the time to visit other countries close by which would not have been possible if it weren't for the Master's Programme.
