ROUTE TO PHD DEGREE
Excellent graduates from the MBATC program have the possibility to continue their PhD studies in CSIC Departments (Real Jardin Botanico, Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, etc.) through separate application calls opened each year. They can also apply to other programs in the Spanish science system (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, etc.), or to any European or American university, as this MSc title is an official European degree.
