Students and companies during the Orientation, Employment and Postgraduate Week

The three focal points of the 1st Orientation, Employment and Postgraduate Week held by the Universidad Católica de Murcia during this week at the Los Jerónimos Campus were to provide guidance on different options after finishing studies, offer employment options for new graduates and publicise its wide range of master's degrees.

During the event, around 40 companies, organisations and professional associations in different fields, participated in the event with stands where they held meetings with students from the University. Their aim was to recruiting the best talent for their companies.

Marisa López, General Director of the Regional Employment and Training Service, visited the stands together with Manuel Carlos Ruiz, Vice-Rector of Quality and Academic Planning at UCAM, who thanked the participants for their involvement and commitment, and stressed how important it is that the university and the companies keep cooperating. ‘However, simply saying this is not enough, we have to walk the talk. And this University, since its founding, has always been in contact with them. This notion was always very clear for its founder, José Luis Mendoza’.

For her part, the SEF general director congratulated UCAM for holding this employment event which ‘has managed to bring the immense talent of this university into contact with leading companies during this week’, stressing that ‘it is very important for students to get first-hand contact with companies and to learn about their requirements’.

International rankings highlight UCAM for its high employability and close relationship with the business world.

This Week is yet another of UCAM's tools to make the entry into the labour market easier for its students – either as self-employed workers or as employees – and promote employability. This objective is essential to the institution itself and is recognised in prestigious international rankings, such as the University Entrepreneurship Observatory, which states that UCAM’s students are twice as entrepreneurial as the national average. Furthermore, the IUNE and CYD rankings highlight the university’s high employability rate and close relationship with the business world. The Universidad Católica de Murcia launched UCAM HiTech, its high-tech business incubator in health, sports and nutrition in 2021. The entity is already a benchmark centre for research and entrepreneurship. Its facilities are co-financed by ERDF funds through a competitive call managed by the Incyde Foundation, an institution with which it also maintains a close collaboration in training matters.
