Our way of teaching

Part of the goal is that each student learns the trade and is prepared to perform any position within the management department in a practical way. That is why, through agreements with various associations and producers, we keep our study plan updated and we can improve it every year.

In this way, we can set up a pedagogical machinery that places the understanding of creative processes and their development as the main value.

Applying what has been learned is one of the main values of our way of teaching. These are complex processes that need to be understood over time and will help shape the minds of tomorrow's talent.
