In the competitive environment in which we are moving, organizations must manage their different activities effectively. For this reason, they demand management models that they can use as tools for this task.
It is a fact that the evolution of the different versions of the standards of quality, environment and prevention of occupational hazards converges towards a single integrated system. The first step was given by the ISO 19011: 2002 standard on audits, which serves both the field of quality and the environment. Subsequently, the appearance of the OHSAS 18001: 2007 standard and, more recently, the ISO 9001: 2008 standard, have confirmed this trend.
A high percentage of companies that consider systems integration already have at least one quality management system in place, since it is the most common and widespread. The strategy involves integrating in the existing management manual, particular aspects of the other systems to be integrated, optimizing the resources and derived costs. In this context, it is essential to ensure that the integrated system adapts to the idiosyncrasies of organizations - for example, in large organizations, appointing a person in charge of the integrated system - and the analysis of the common elements to be integrated to avoid oversizing the system.
Duration, Credit Structure and Degree
The estimated duration of the Master's program in Integrated Management: Environment, Quality and Prevention is 900 hours (90 credits).
Regarding the distribution of time, it is established that:
- Being a distance Program and not being subject to face-to-face classes, a specific start date is not established, so the student can formalize the enrollment at any time, provided there are places available.
- For academic and learning reasons there is a minimum duration of the Program of one year.
- The maximum time available to complete the Program is two years. In this period of time, the student must have delivered all the corresponding evaluations, as well as the Final Project or Degree Thesis.
On the other hand, those companies that do not yet have any management system in place, now have the opportunity to design a management manual that integrates the three disciplines in company policy.
Thus, from an eminently practical approach, the Master in Integrated Management: Environment, Quality and Prevention is an ideal reference for those companies that have the need to incorporate an integrated management system into their company philosophy to obtain competitive advantages , also seeking an optimization of existing resources.
