86 new students started the Degree in Applied Management on September 1. Of these, 55% are of national origin and 45% are international; 48% are men and 52% are women.

The day before classes began, the professors and mentors of the ISSA School of Applied Management welcomed them with a welcoming workshop . Victoria Rodríguez Chacón, professor and director of the academic center, explained that as students they are already part of the great project that is the University of Navarra. She also reminded them that the goal of this institution is "to contribute to the development of society through the development staff and professional development of each of the members of the university community: students and professionals".

For his part, the director of development, Antonio María Fernández, stated that of the total number of students starting the degree program at the University of Navarra, they represent 3.5%. "You are unique here at campus, but also in the job market; at the end of the day, you are students of a unique Degree in Spain. Take advantage of it." In this sense, he invited them to reflect and work on who they are and who they want to be in four years.

Adrián, Celia and Mateo are three of the new students starting the Degree in Applied Management. Below they detail the reasons that led them to choose to study this degree program.




Last year he had the opportunity to visit the University with the high school and he was very attracted by the training in languages and the project-based learning methodology taught in the Degree in Applied Management. In addition, he had the advantage that French was one of the subjects he liked the most at high school.

"I still don't know what I would like to do in the future, but I'll find out as I go through degree program. I do know that I would love to work abroad," he explains.

In his free time he plays soccer conference room with a team from Pamplona and also sings in the Orfeón Pamplonés. During this academic year he hopes to combine both activities with the programs of study, as well as to take advantage of the university experience by making new friends.


CELIA PASTOR - Valladolid



Celia Pastor is 18 years old and is from Valladolid. She is a first year student at Degree in Applied Management. She is excited to say that she has chosen this degree program "because it trains you to work in different areas of a business". 

"I have my eyes on my father's profession, who is Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), and I love everything related to sales, so I think I'm going to really enjoy the Marketing subjects." 

In his spare time he practices athletics, skiing and tennis, and this year he would also love to improve his French and be part of Innovation Factory. She says that, although she is a little afraid of the novelty of the first few days, she has taken the beginning of the course "with great enthusiasm".





For Mateo Salas, the Degree in Applied Management is spectacular and he finds it very interesting for the businesses of the future: "It is very complete and has many branches in which you can specialize".

It is clear to him that management is his thing and that he would love to work someday in the logistics area of a business. I am very interested in how a product arrives at a specific time, and in a specific status and market. "I'm willing to put in a lot of effort to get the most out of my degree program and my university," he says.
