Cooperation with Companies

Most of the dissertations in the last semester of the master’s program are carried out in a business environment, which is one of the great strengths of this program. The impact that results from this collaborative work between academia and organizations translates into multiple aspects, such as, for example, a significant improvement in processes, increased productivity, new ideas for products and services, generally associated with meritorious scientific contributions.

Cooperation with companies is also embodied in the frequent participation of companies in seminars for master’s students, study visits to industrial sites, and the exploration of real case studies in the classroom.

The companies in which students have conducted their dissertations in recent years include:
