Training Activities

Organization

The doctorate in “Advanced Management of Organisations and Social Economy” develops activities focused on the acquisition of competencies and skills leading to the title of doctor. These activities include educational aspects and procedures for the development of the doctoral thesis.

Annually the tutor and the director of thesis will orient the student in the development and/or modification of the Research Plan (PI), including the identification of training activities necessary to ensure the acquisition of the competences that the candidate must acquire to obtain the degree of doctor.

The student's personalised Document of Activities (DAP) records the training activities carried out by the student. This document will be assessed by the panel during the defence of the thesis.

Training activities will be offered in two formats: in face-to-face format and in virtual format, which is rolled out via the virtual platform. This virtual platform is based on the Moodle virtual environment.Mondragon University uses this for the teaching of its postgraduate programmes in virtual format.
