Catherine SantiagoThis postgraduate diploma has given me the opportunity to acquire new abilities and to develop the tools needed for researching, analysing, and identifying strategic solutions, with the aim of applying them in the professional field. From the academic point of view, it has a very complete programme, from the contents of every lesson to the development of a real firm project. I specially appreciate the fact that the teachers, being all of them active, gave us a perspective of the working world. It has been a great personal and professional experience that has fulfilled each and every one of my expectations.
Manuela ProcopioI chose this postgraduate diploma because it was not focused only on the fashion world, the field I came from. In what refers to trend analysis, I have been able to widen my horizons and I have realised that the application possibilities are unlimited. For me, working with people coming from different countries, each one with a different training and professional background has been a challenge and a great opportunity. The teachers have known how to provide me with a professional and practical point of view that has given shape to my ideas. Working with a firm in a real case has been essential in order to set into something tangible and useful every input received throughout the course.
Alejandra Belenguer CostaI really liked work with people from very different areas. I thought the postgraduate diploma would be more focused on fashion but what we have learned can be applied everywhere. Everyone can adapt the programme to their field of knowledge. I also appreciate that teachers know what is happening in the professional world and what will happen. It is also a very good idea to do real projects with companies, because the feedback you receive is also real. In addition, companies are highly predisposed to follow the whole process of the project.
