La movilidad es clave en nuestros días: disponer de datos, aplicaciones y dispositivos allí donde nos encontramos se hace indispensable para imaginar el presente y el futuro más inmediato. En el mundo actual, donde existen cuatro veces más dispositivos móviles que ordenadores, miles de empresas en todo el mundo se preparan para asumir el reto de la movilidad total. Sin ir más lejos, en el último Mobile World Congress en Barcelona, 1.500 empresas exhibieron sus innovaciones en este ámbito en el cual se abren infinitas oportunidades de negocio.

Según Boston Consulting Group, 2.000 millones de personas utilizarán su smartphone en el año 2015, lo que pone en evidencia que las comunicaciones móviles son el futuro en mayúsculas en el mundo de la comunicación. En cuanto a las aplicaciones móviles, su progresión de descarga ya supera el millón al día. Estos datos evidencian una oportunidad sin precedentes para aquellos programadores y diseñadores que, conscientes de su potencialidad, quieren crecer en este sector estratégico.

Este posgrado quiere dar respuesta a las necesidades profesionales en el ámbito de las comunicaciones móviles desde una vertiente emprendedora y de conocimiento del negocio, atorgando las estrategias, las tecnologías y los procesos más óptimos en aplicaciones móviles y su integración en la web 2.0.
