The Master's Degree in Management of Mountain Areas, with a professional character, is an official master's degree that offers the specialized training of postgraduates with the capacity to:
Specific analysis of the dynamics, potential and problems of mountain areas.
To make proposals and organize innovative planning and management initiatives for the sustainable development of these spaces, both from the public and private sectors.
It is an innovative Master's in its field of knowledge since there is no training offer specifically aimed at the management of mountain areas in the entire environment.
It is a part-time Master's degree of 60 ECTS and can be taken full-time in 1 year, or part-time in 2 years. The face-to-face part includes the compulsory subjects and involves a 4-month stay in Lleida, between October and January. The rest are optional subjects that are taught online through the UdL's Virtual Campus.
Some master's subjects can also be taken independently to obtain the title of "University Specialist in Planning, Management and Entrepreneurship Tools in Mountain Areas". You can find all the information in the Continuing Education Center of the University of Lleida (5 places offered).
The collaboration of the Geography Departments of the five universities that offer the master's degree: University of Lleida (coordinator), Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Universitat de Girona, Universitat de Barcelona and Universitat Rovira i Virgili is a guarantee of quality due to the long tradition academic and research in the mountain theme. This collaboration is strengthened thanks to the support of IDAPA (Instituto para el Desarrollo y la Promoción del Alt Pirineu y Aran).
