The School of Architecture of the University of Navarra has published the results of the half-yearly survey of employment rate of its Master's Degree University of Architecture (MUA) -the postgraduate program enabling taught at the campus in Madrid since 2016- and the data note a considerable increase in the percentage of occupation of graduates, which reaches 93% seven months after completing the Master's Degree, compared to 71% who stated to be so in November.

Specifically, the study conducted by the center confirms that 86% of postgraduates who completed the Master's Degree in June 2020 are working or have received a scholarship PIE (postgraduate program Initiation to business); 2% are doing the doctorate, 4% have started a new Master's Degree, 2% are taking competitive examinations and 9% are in active search of employment.

In the case of Paula Munárriz (Arq 19 and MUA 20), her professional trajectory has taken her to the López y Tena Studiowhere she did her internship at Master's Degree: "I was very happy during that period. There was a great atmosphere at work and the team was very keen for me to learn. So when I was offered to continue with them after finishing the MUA in July, I thought it was a great place to start in the working world".

"This continuity that many students experience, who start their career in the same studio or business where they have done their internship at Master's Degree, is very common," explains manager of Career Services at School of Architecture, Javier Irigaray.

The module business with IESE professors: content core topic

Paula recalls that she started the MUA with very high expectations, which she believes were met. "I had heard very good things about the program, so I expected a lot from it. I also found it very interesting that, despite being an enabling Master's Degree , it incorporates internships, seminars, workshops and an entrepreneurial module . All of this made it, for me, one of the best years of study."

If I had to highlight one part of the program, it would perhaps be the business module taught by IESE professors: "To get the most out of this specific part - which has helped us to learn new ways of working and to get started in the world of work - I would tell the prospective students students to get some training in Economics and business; in basic knowledge of finance, accounting and strategy," says the recent graduate.
