The UAB awarded during the Erasmus Mundus programme’s anniversary

The UAB has been awarded by the European Commission for its trajectory and the results achieved throughout the twenty-year history of the Erasmus Mundus programme. The award was presented during the programme’s 20th Anniversary Conference, “Beyond Borders and Boundaries: 20 years of Erasmus Mundus”, held on 27 and 28 May in Brussels.

The UAB takes part in the programme since 2004, and it currently offers 9 Erasmus Mundus master’s degrees, among which the Master in Education Policies for Global Development (GLOBED), coordinated by the UAB and including the University of Glasgow, the University of Bremen and the University of Cyprus as full partners. The GLOBED programme has played a key role on this award, being the first Erasmus Mundus master’s degree coordinated by a university in Spain that renews three consecutive times.

During the pannel, the audience could learn about the ability of GLOBED to attract talent, having received almost 900 applications in the last call for applications, and special emphasis was made to the high employability of its graduates: “It is not coincidence that 90% of the graduates of GLOBED find a relevant job or PhD within the first 6 months after the graduation. One of the key aspects that boosts employment among fresh graduates is a solid and growing network among Associate Partners, professors, and alumni.”
