Classes in Business Administration at UManresa have a high practical content and use simulation tools intensively for training management skills, both generic ones (negotiation, team management, communication, time management, conflict resolution, decision making, creativity, critical thinking, etc.) as well as situational ones (linked to key moments in daily business matters: inspections, audits, dismissal of personnel, recruitment interviews, shareholders’ meetings).
The simulation methodology is closely integrated into teaching throughout all the degree and includes activities with actors in order to reproduce real business situations as faithfully as possible. The university also has equipment for recording sessions of individual and collective cases which can be later be analysed and areas for improvement identified.
Students of Business Administration at UManresa can take free courses in English, during the 4 years of their degree, and a second foreign language (French or German) from the 3rd year.
The aim is to ensure that when students graduate, they will all have a solid foundation in language skills that will allow them to work in multilingual environments.
