The EU 2020 Strategy, adopted by the European Council, states that one of the main objectives regarding education is to achieve early school leaving rates below 10%. One of the most important keys to face this reduction in school failure lies in the quality and, more specifically, in the quality of the teaching staff, which becomes the most effective measure to improve student performance.

In this context, the Master's Degree in Educational Quality and Innovation appears as a training specialization aimed at improving educational quality and innovation, an inseparable set, for the reduction of dropping out of the educational system and the increase in the rates of graduate students in Spain.

The purpose of this master's degree is advanced training, both theoretical and applied, in the design and implementation of plans and programs for both Educational Quality and Innovation in educational centers, all oriented towards an impact of improvement in the teaching-learning process.
