Deborah Nightingale, global expert in Lean Manufacturing and Co-Director of the Lean Advancement Initiative (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), gave the keynote lesson “Lean Enterprise thinking”.

During this act, UCC presented its first program, “Management and New Product Development”, which is characterized by capitalizing the opportunities, strategy and decision making process from the perspective of ethics and the latest knowledge in innovation and technology.

The educational approach of this Corporate University is unique: because it comes from the industry, therefore it allows the students to integrate knowledge and practice immediately in their daily work. UCC has a group of teachers recognized by the automotive industry and is aimed towards the implementation of a management and innovation scheme that enables the Galician automotive industry to lead its own future and become a model in an European and global level.
