Interdisciplinary Learning CoursesLooking at the world from other perspectives

Facts can be very different depending on who relates them

Most of the daily and professional situations that we have to face in everyday life can be understood and perceived in different ways. Assuming that the same fact can be interpreted in multiple ways by the different people who experience it is key to success in our personal interactions and professional projects. Social and community problems are also completely different depending on the position in which we are or the perspective from which we observe the fact.

In the corporate and business field, it will also be essential to consider and integrate the economic, technological, human, customer, and professional perspective; which will allow us to design and create different and better solutions for any situation. That is why this subject, with its multidisciplinary nature, seeks to develop the essential skills that allow addressing a situation, problem or objective to be achieved, in a comprehensive and thorough way, considering and integrating different perspectives, thus increasing the chances of success when facing it.
