José Luis Mateos, head of the Employers survey, will then give his presentation on the employers' opinion of training in the field of Communication. Finally, there will be a round table addressing the challenges in university training in Communication, in which Laia Quilez, director of the Department of Communication Studies at Rovira i Virgili University, Ignasi Marcet, executive producer of the Lavínia Group, and a person speaking on behalf of recent graduates will participate. The debate will be moderated by Carles Pont, dean of the Faculty of Communication at Pompeu Fabra University.
