AQU Catalunya has organised a webinar on 20 July titled Employability and university training in Economics and Business, at which it will present the results of the third Employers survey (2020-2023).

The debate will be moderated by Maria Jesús Martínez-Argüelles, dean of the Faculty of Economics and Business at the Open University of Catalonia (UOC).
