Manuel Gazapo Lapayese, director of intitutional relations
In the highly technological and ever-changing world we live in, education plays a crucial role in preparing individuals for the labour market. UNIVERSAE, a Higher Institute of Professional Training, has emerged as a leader in democratizing education and nurturing qualified talent. With a range of 55 degrees across 13 specialization areas, it has become a beacon of innovation in higher education, opening doors to students from around the world.
One of UNIVERSAE´s main objectives is to eliminate the traditional barriers that often make vocational training inaccessible to many. The institution has embraced a philosophy of 100% online education to achieve this purpose. The Director of Institutional Relations, Manuel Gazapo Lapayese, points out that they have designed a unique training model called UNIVERSAE360, which integrates immersive technology, virtual and augmented reality, gamified activities, and 3D simulations. This disruptive methodology adapts to the needs of the labour market and the growing digitization of companies.
All the degrees offered by UNIVERSAE are officially recognized qualifications by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Vocational Training. These qualifications are grouped into specialization areas that span from Administration and Management to Socio-Cultural and Community Services, including areas such as Electricity and Electronics, IT and Communications, and more. This ensures that students can choose the training that best suits their interests and career aspirations.
The institution has expanded internationally, establishing campuses in Spain, the United States, and Latin America. With over 65,000 square meters of space available for students, these campuses serve as meeting points where companies and professionals actively engage in student training. Through collaborative agreements, these companies develop programs that provide students with key tools for their future careers and entrepreneurship. Additionally, UNIVERSAE campuses serve as venues for employability and mentoring workshops, aiming to develop cross-cutting skills that strengthen students' professional competencies.
OpenUNIVERSAE is the result of the institution's international expansion, a network of campuses distributed worldwide representing the forefront of technological innovation in higher education. UNIVERSAE students have access to dynamic and state-of-the-art facilities that are constantly updated to stay at the forefront of the latest educational trends and tools. This ensures that students are well-prepared to face the challenges of an ever-changing labour market.
