Educational Methodology

The educational model promotes collaboration and cooperation to enhance people’s education.

Nowadays, the educational model consists of many educational and pedagogical innovations that facilitate, strengthen and drive a formative process in a quality learning environment. This includes:

  • Making it easy for students, professors and both groups to be in contact.
  • Fostering cooperation and reciprocity: learning as a collective effort.
  • Considering the student as the center of the learning process in which the student actively participates.
  • Encouraging and promoting the continuous communication and interaction between professors and students.
  • Instilling that the training process implies and requires temporary dedication and continuous effort.
  • Using motivation as a constant stimulus so the student perceives that the expected learning results are achievable.
  • Personalizing the learning, taking into account the differences between students and their different ways of learning.

Diploma

The Doctorate student who meets the academic requirements and passes the Doctorate thesis’ defense in accordance with the rules of the universities which offer the Doctorate program, will get the following diploma:

  • Doctorate in Education in the International Iberoamerican University (Mexico), indicating the line of research of the thesis.
