FOM Students at UCAM


For three months, thirty students from the German University Fachhochschule für Oekonomie & Management University (FOM)  will be trained in economics and finance in the Study Abroad Program of the Catholic University San Antonio de Murcia.

These professionals work for companies such as Siemens, BMW, Mercedes, Adecco, Audi or E·ON, and they are attending a Master's degree at FOM, and five modules of this postgraduate course are developed by UCAM.

This is the seventh edition of this program, which has been an average of sixty students per edition. The students will receive their training with classes in English, which will be taught by professors from Germany, as well as by UCAM professors.

This collaboration is possible thanks to the agreement signed by both institutions more than fifteen years ago, which has allowed the development of this program, along with others such as language courses, in addition to the Doctoral School.

At the welcoming ceremony there were present, among others, Pablo Blesa, vice chancellor of International Relations and Communication at UCAM; Burghard Hermeier, rector of the FOM and Gonzalo Wandosell, dean of the Faculty of Legal Sciences and Business at UCAM.

Burghard Hermeier, highlighted "the great growth" that UCAM has experienced in the last 20 years, and recalled the numerous actions developed by both universities. For his part, Pablo Blesa noted that "there are around 1,500 students who have completed their studies at the UCAM through FOM programs with which they internationalized their curriculum".
