Students that join a master’s degree in the UMA recognize the importance of developing themselves as agents of change engaging in a process of transformation and personal enrichment that will facilitate the development of iniciatives and projects that seek to change the current practices of their disciplines toward sustainable models. Enable them to take on leadership roles.
We know that the first change to be pursued is one’s own.
Educational Model For Systemic Transformation
To reach a sustainable future, we need to re-invent many of the basic human systems: how we feed ourselves, how we build, how we do business, how we educate ourselves, how we regulate ourselves, and how we live. Our postgraduate programs support the development of professionals interested in transforming their disciplines into regenerating activities for our society and the environment.
The UMA educational model is centered on integrating a learning community in which the students and teachers alike learn from each other based on three pathways that are interconnected in terms of sustainability and regeneration: the discipline pathway, forming an innovative professional; the projects pathway, to develop social and environmental initiatives; and, the change pathway, enabling the transformation of systems.
HYBRID (online and presential) MODE – ACTIVE LEARNING
This model allows you to live wherever you wish and to study with us. The executive educational system is the latest tendency in higher education, consisting of a carefully planned mix of classroom workshops and both independent and online learning activities. The students make a significant connection with their instructors, as well as with other students, during the classroom workshops, while the periods between sessions are dedicaded to the development of assignments and the participation in online sessions. Three classroom workshops are scheduled per semester in Valle de Bravo, each with a length of four days. The period of virtual sessions between workshops is five weeks long. The hybrid Master’s Degree program has a duration of two years.
