"It is clear to modern and socially advanced societies that an individual's educational process does not end with the awarding of a university degree. The world is moving forward rapidly and it does so at that breakneck speed which is a sign of progress in all scientific and technological fields. For this reason, and in order to guarantee the success of future challenges, it is essential for students to continue their education throughout the course of their professional lives.

Set up in 1993, IDEC is the tool implemented by Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) to develop continuing education and training for professionals in close collaboration with the world of business. With the perspective gained by years of existence and activity under the premise of quality and academic excellence, IDEC has more than consolidated its prestige by offering master's degrees and postgraduate programmes which are completely adapted to the educational needs of the business and professional worlds. At the same time, IDEC provides graduates and UPF alumni with a natural continuation of their university studies as well as with the recycling necessary in the development of their professional lives.

In coming years IDEC will collaborate even further with businesses and institutions, will promote e-learning programmes, will extend its international scope, especially in Mediterranean and Latin America, and will maintain its academic excellence, so as to continue playing a leading role in the task of educating the professionals required by society."
