Our own educational model
- Our approach is based on management as an essential resource for the development of any profession. We do not associate management exclusively with the business world or executive roles: we also view it as the capacity to make ideas become reality, in any knowledge area or professional field.
- Our approach is personalized, because every professional is unique. Identifying the skills and competences that make a person unique is vital to enabling them to become the best version of themselves.
- We believe in the value of an interdisciplinary outlook. BSM offers interdisciplinary knowledge and competences that enrich your chosen specialization and academic track.
- Our approach is articulated in the form of active methodologies such as project-, problem- or challenge-based learning, gamification, and flipped learning.
- Our programs incorporate culture and the humanities to provide context for debate and ideas and to improve our understanding of the modern world.
