This curricular unit (CU) aims to provide the most updated knowledge and information on Management Trends and its implications for Management Practices. Trends considered will be those that show the most potential to change traditional management principles and techniques. The chosen Methodology (Conferences or Seminars) using, as much as possible, the national and international experts that are a reference on each of the chosen topics, is seen as an important step towards the internationalization of this Master course, opening students’ views on each of the subjects. The following promotion of pedagogical activities, echoing each event’s lessons and learnings will be done in order to promote critical thinking and debate, in a problem solving perspective. This is considered very important for the development of the student’s soft skills, reinforcing knowledge acquired in other Curricular Units.
The discipline’s update is guaranteed yearly with the choice of themes under debate, and the adequate promotion of a strategic vision about all and every one of the topics discussed.
