The Official Master's Degree in Management of Mountain Areas, with a markedly professional focus, offers graduate students specialised training in specific analysis skills needed to deal with the dynamics, potentiality and problems found in mountain areas. It also equips students with the knowledge needed to propose and organise innovative planning and management initiatives for the sustainable development of these areas, both in the public sector and with private initiatives. This is an innovative master's degree in its sector given that there are no other regulated programmes specifically focused in the management of mountain areas and their surroundings. The collaboration between the Departments of Geography of the five universities offering this master's degree: University of Lleida (coordinating university), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, University of Girona, University of Barcelona and Rovira i Virgili University provides a guarantee of quality thanks to their long-lasting academic and research tradition in a wide range of mountain-related subjects.
