Select your program


The Universidad Europea de Valencia and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) present the Master in International Leadership and Negotiation.

The increase in volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) in today's world means there is no longer an approach to management that can be applied to all organisations and work environments.

Leaders must adjust their leadership strategies to be more flexible and adapt to a variety of challenges and situations.

What is the difference between an official master's degree and a Universidad Europea-specific master's degree?

In Spain like in many countries, especially the English-speaking ones, there are official and non-official or university-specific degrees. The first ones have the recognition of their own State. The others are specific because the universities are responsible for developing the curricula and programmes and ensuring the quality of the studies with their prestige.

In Spain and other western and English-speaking nations, the recognition of a master's degree in the labor market is determined by both the prestige of the institution that grants it and the prestige of the master's degree in its own discipline. When hiring a professional, private firms often do not evaluate whether the qualification is an official or a university-specific degree, but rather the reputation of the program and if it offers students with the information and abilities necessary for the position they want.
