What Areas Can you Research?

Because Enpresagintza is the Business Faculty of Mondragon University, and MIK is the centre for Management Research at the same university, the thesis will be based on some aspect of Management. Specifically, these are the four main research lines at the Centre:

  • Socially Responsible Business Models: this line of research will deepen knowledge in issues related to Co-operativism, the participation of people in companies, and the social enterprise; as well as the integrated management of people within organizations.
  • Entrepreneurship: the line of entrepreneurship has three action sub-levels: collaborative entrepreneurship, intra-entrepreneurship, and the new business models.
  • Globalisation of Companies: based on an approach of network globalisation, this line consists of the following aspects: shared international business parks and locations, management of people in geographically-spread organisations, agreements and international alliances, supply chain in LCC and globalisation of services. 
  • The Open Company: this line has three sub-levels: open innovation, the relationship with users and digital business.
