A new methodology: Learning by Challenge
La Salle-URL applies an innovative new methodology, Learning by Challenge, which enables students to acquire skills and knowledge through solving real challenges posed by companies, institutions or organizations with an interdisciplinary approach, cross-cutting interlinked areas and thus facilitate the transfer of knowledge and technology. The idea is that students of La Salle can be able to be innovative, creative and implement solutions to real problems.
Innovation and technology, La Salle’s DNA
Technology, innovation, entrepreneurship and internationality are the basic elements that define the DNA of La Salle Campus Barcelona-URL. The university trains students to lead the change in a global world. The vast majority of students now entering the university will probably work in a profession that doesn’t exist yet and for companies that have not yet been created. At La Salle their skills in these areas will be enhanced so they can take on the challenges of tomorrow with guarantees of success.
La Salle-URL makes a commitment to technology, which is present not only in the technological programs such as the ones in Management in Business or ICT, but also to all the other degrees. New technologies are the engine of change and La Salle-URL prepares students to work with the latest technologies, and to create and develop the technologies of tomorrow.
La Salle also promotes the development of innovation for the creation of new business projects through La Salle Technova Barcelona, the innovation park on campus offering start-up accelerator and incubator services whose can benefit all students. In 2016 La Salle Technova Barcelona was among the Top 10 of European accelerators by the European Accelerator Report.
