Program Description

Presentation and objectives

In an unprecedented publication, Óscar Berdugo in 1999 made a SWOT report on Spanish as an economic resource. In addition, the Yearbook of the Cervantes Institute shows year after year the dimensions of the Spanish language as a valuable intangible for the sectors in which it is a vehicle for communicating their productive activities.

Despite the confirmation of the importance of our language for the economy, it has only been approached from specific and few forums and business and management meetings. We understand that the university should take the initiative to propose studies that analyze the sectors of the Spanish industries with scientific rigor and professional dimension.
