1. Future prospects

The Official Master's Degree in Digital Communication and New Technologies offers specialised education on digital communication, an emerging sector with a bright future. It is the first official master's degree in Spain that naturally links communication and digital marketing to the use of new technologies in the information society.

The Official Master's Degree in Digital Communication and New Technologies at Abat Oliba CEU University is designed to respond to the growing needs of the media, companies and institutions in both digital communication and content creation within the context of the society of information and knowledge.

The Postgraduate Degree in Food and Wine Marketing and Communication adds extensive knowledge of a key Spanish and Latin American sector which is currently undergoing sustained expansion on both sides of the Atlantic. The lack of communicators with specific knowledge of the sector is good news for up-and-coming digital experts. This increases the likelihood of success and accessing decision-making roles in companies from the sector (restaurants, luxury products, accommodation, tourism etc.).

2. Competitive edge in the job market

The digital revolution brings with it a complete transformation of human communication. Big data, social networks, virtual and augmented reality and artificial intelligence are paving the cultural, economic and professional way for our global society. Creating an innovative personal and academic experience with a business vision that is focused on the future is the best way to understand, grow and excel in the digital world. What's more, it gives graduates a competitive advantage in the global job market. 

3. Extra-curricular activities
  • UAO CEU Digital Communication Week. A week listening to leading professionals from the main sectors of the digital revolution.
  • Experience Week Lab. A week to experience a digital programme in a tech environment first hand.

  • Trips to food and wine companies on the international scale, as well as major events in the sector (Barcelona Food Fair and the Girona Gastronomy Forum).
