I am Business Developer and Project Manager at Computer Vision and Robotics Research Institute at the University of Girona. I decided to join the BITM programme back in 2007 when I was working as a commercial promoter for a big multinational company. I enrolled the masters with the main aim of improving my general knowledge, but, it turned out that I discovered a full set of new job profiles which attracted me more than what I was doing. Currently, at work, I deal with technology management daily and the knowledge acquired in BITM continues to be essential.

I decided to study the BITM programme because as a new responsibility in my job, I had to start an innovation program in Vocational Education and Training. I’m a Mechanical Engineer and the BITM was a great complement to my knowledge to manage the new innovation programme in VET. Today the innovation program in VET is running and growing over expectations. In addition I decided to start a career as an Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship consultant . Coursing the master in English, and together with great mates and teachers, were extra advantages of choosing the BITM.

I am currently working as a Sales Manager in a company where we design and implement projects both electrical and mechanical installations. I studied Business Administration and did a Master in Marketing. With the Master in BITM I managed to study Marketing from a difefernt business perspective, obviously from the point of view of production. I learned the different ways of organize the production, also I have increased my knowledge of new technologies. In addition you get a significant level of English. It was a great experience to learn from the younger generation.

Vaig fer el BITM perque buscava un màster per recuperar, ampliar i consolidar coneixements introduits a la carrera d'Enginyeria Industrial i relacionats amb la gestiíó de la R+D+i i que, a més, fos un màster reconegut (homologat) pel sistema educadiu europeu. Del màster, a part del contingut en si, vaig valorar que fos majoritariament en anglès, aixi com la bona qualitficació del professorat. Em va permetre aconseguir el que buscava a més d'aprendre conceptes nous dins l'area de recerca, desenvolupament i innovació que vaig poder portar a la pràctica en la gestió de projectes i que també m'han servit durant la meva carrera professional.

I am currently PhD Candidate at University of Girona. I'm Computer Scientist and in the BITM Master degree I learned about the non-technical, rather business perspective. I learned about innovation, business, and different technologies. I met several people around the world and I improved my English. It helped to me to acquire a broader view of the entire complexity (organisational, technical, etc) within a company.

I chose BITM at University of Girona as an Erasmus student from Denmark. My desire was to come to Spain to get to know a little part of this culture and this master programme was the most interesting for me. The academic structure of the courses was very well explained since the semester started. What I mostly appreciated was that I applied all the knowledge acquired during the semester, working for a lot of individual or group assignments.

I was coursing the Master in Technology Based Business Development in Denmark when I decided to join BITM at the UdG during one semester as an Erasmus student. I had an excellent time in Girona, a city with an ideal location of 30 km from the beach and the mountains, easy access to Barcelona and cool atmoshere in the night. The courses I had at the UdG in the BITM Master were very practical and useful for my professional life. I enjoyed classes in the company of collegues with very varied background. We mutually learned from each other. I also liked the oral exams and presentations which contributed a lot to my personal developemnt and growth.

I'm currently a PhD student at the University of Girona. As an industrial engineer I'm familiar with many physical and technical aspects of different topics, such as mechanics, electronics or manufacturing. I choose this master to complete my background and get a whole perspective of how businesses work and how to manage it in order to succeed. After finishing the master, I joint a PhD programme in technology. One of the things I enjoyed more was that most of the lectures were based in real cases analysis, where you can easily identify the real applicability of what you learn.

I decided to join the BITM master in order to complement my background in chemical and industrial engineering with business management skills. Furthermore, it gave me the opportunity to enroll in the PhD programme in Technology focusing my PhD thesis on one of the innovative technologies taught in the master. I would like to highlight that the lectures are very dynamic and promote the participation of the students by means of oral presentations, group activities and discussions. For me it was very enriching to work with colleagues from different countries and backgrounds.

I am currently a PhD candidate in Medical Imaging at the Computer Vision and Robotics Research Institute at the University of Girona. As an observation, it came to me that academia and industry lack of a real synergy mainly due to their ignorance of each other notably in their functioning mechanisms. My enrolment in BITM was motivated to gain experience and knowledge in the fields which were more obscure to me as innovation and business, mainly due to my previous background. In that matter, the master completely answer to my requests which open to me even more doors for my future career. Furthermore, I'm blossomed thanks to the master being taught in English within a total international atmosphere similar to my previous experience in the Erasmus Mundus studies.

Associate professor and PhD Student at University of Girona. I studied the Mechanical Engineering career at University of Girona and after that I decided to make a PhD. I needed two official Masters in order to make that. So, my second Master was BITM. I thought that it will be interesting Master where I could learn helpful tools about innovation in order to get a business success. Moreover, this Master was in English language, so it was a great opportunity to practice that. I discovered several issues about innovation. I remember a game called PRIZM GAME to generate innovation ideas. I remember that class as one of the best. It was spectacular where I learned a lot of things. In the Master, also I learned other things as how to make surveys and interviews, and analyse the results about a theme, the difference between qualitative and quantitative method, the difference between explicit and implicit knowledge and so on.

Although my previous background was related to Psychology, I studied this Master to learn from two different areas: Business and Technology. I have choosen this Master to improve my English and it overcame a great opportunity to meet international people with who I am still in contact nowadays. Thanks to BITM’s Professors, I developed a really interesting and innovative Master Thesis Topic: “Design analysis of the infrastructure needed in a village to wirelessly charge electrical vehicles”.

I studied Industrial Engineering in Quebec (Canada) and I decided to join BITM in order to complement my technical background with the business perspective. This objective was fully covered and had good times in class with colleagues from Catalonia and also international students. The Master is very practical and lots of case studies help to better understand content. I also enjoyed a lot writing my Master Thesis titled “Exploring the relations between supply chain management, green practices and innovation”.

Finally, I have to mention that I value a lot the relationships shared with my classmates and the environment felt during the master.

Going busy in the day-to-day life working as an engineering consultant, with all the doing and actions and daily chores cannot make me lose the sign of the big picture that starts my own business to make a good impact on young people in my home country - Vietnam. Studying BITM course in Girona University is a great opportunity to make my big picture clearer and closer to the reality. The studying materials, the environment, and on the top of that the amazing people (the classmates and the professors) have had a huge and positive impact on my personal development as well as my professional life.

I will be more than happy to welcome the amazing BITM people to visit Vietnam. Thanks and best regards!
