The Master of Science in Project Management, ninth best Spanish-speaking online program according to the FSO Ranking

The online modality of the master is consolidated in the TOP 10 and rises one position compared to the previous edition of the ranking

The Online Master of Science in Project Management of La Salle-URL is the ninth best Spanish-speaking online program according to the Ranking de Formación Superior Online (FSO), which is prepared annually by the consultancy firm Hamilton Global and Emagister. The program is consolidated in the TOP 10 of the ranking and gains a position compared to last year's edition. Also, once again, it is the only postgraduate program in project management that manages to position itself in this prestigious ranking.

This is the eighth edition of the FSO Ranking, which since 2015 has evaluated the 30 best Spanish-speaking institutions that offer online masters in the field of business administration and management, focusing on the regions of Latin America, the United States and Spain. The study uses three indicators to assess and classify the programs: the institution, the actors and the training.

To prepare the ranking, a study has been carried out based on some 4,000 surveys answered by students, alumni and program managers from more than 250 centers. This year's edition also analyzes the motivations of students to take these master's degrees —professional progression and job promotion stand out— and provides relevant data on the usefulness of the studies: nine out of ten students find a job and the training has an impact on a salary increase of 28%.

More than 20 years of a master recognized by the best rankings

The Master of Science in Project Management at La Salle-URL is an internationally recognized program that has already trained more than 4,000 project managers. The master was recently reaccredited by the Global Accreditation Center (GAC) of the Project Management Institute (PMI), an accreditation that La Salle-URL was the first university to receive in Spain and the third in Europe.

In addition, the program was recently chosen as one of the best online master's degrees in Spain in the first edition of the ranking 'El Mundo en Formación Online' by the newspaper El Mundo and was once again recognized as one of the best business master's degrees in the world according to the QS Business Masters Ranking. The Master of Science in Project Management of La Salle-URL, both onsite and online, trains students to lead multidisciplinary and transversal projects, assume responsibilities and think transversally and integratively to analyze and resolve situations in uncertain environments, as well as gain experience and develop skills and abilities by carrying out a group project.
