EMIN-Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Economics and Management of Network Industries

The EMIN Joint Master Programme offers the opportunity to acquire expertise in network industries management from a global perspective that covers both the economic/regulatory and technological/management issues. In these industries, teaching, training and research are typically carried out solely by focused specialists, which usually results in a skewed perspective. The purpose of this Master is to continue integrating specialists from different perspectives and nationalities, and to make them interact in an interdisciplinary program to address the main problems faced by network industries in the current context of economic crisis and environmental concern. Our master students will learn the relevant engineering, economics, policy and management principles in the network and infrastructure industries. These skills and knowledge will be acquired and used together in real-life problems, as this course is dedicated to training qualified professionals.

EMIN Joint Master Programme was awarded in 2006 with the Erasmus Mundus excellence label by the European Commission, award renewed for another 5 years in 2010. This excellence label has been granted only to 126 Masters and 22 doctorates in all disciplines and Universities across Europe so far. Comillas also coordinates the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Sustainable Energy Technologies and Strategies (SETS Joint Doctorate).

The EMIN is a two-year joint programme (120 ECTS) with two separate phases:
Training period (90 ECTS): 3 semesters of lectures at the partner universities worth 30 ECTS each.
Master Thesis and internships (30 ECTS): to be carried by students at any of the EMIN partner universities, with the collaboration of the industry partners that will support the development of professional internship of EMIN students during the last stage of their studies.
