Why this programme?

Building integral management (real estate and facility services) is becoming an area of vital importance for companies, as it allows optimizing the profitability of real estate assets and infrastructure, reducing the costs of maintenance and conservation in the operation phase, in addition to offering more competitive and appropriate facility services to its core business.

The diversity of activities included in the management of building conservation and facilities maintenance requires professionalism of the people in charge of this functional area of the companies, currently acting in a way of self-study and lacking methodology.

The professionalization of these activities has given way to what is known internationally as Facility Manager. This professional encompasses multiple disciplines to ensure functionality of the built environment, consisting of people, processes and technology. Its objective is to guarantee the maximum performance of the assets and the satisfaction of the clients towards the support services offered. In addition, the preservation of real estate assets, their maintenance and the management of these facility services must be developed under criteria of sustainability and energy efficiency, in commitment with the rest of the society. Therefore, it is a profile with an increasing demand for professionals.

Postgraduate in Control of Facility Management Services is considered as a specialisation course that allows students to gain control over management skills, focusing on the economic aspects and the applied technological applications. Therefore, it is aimed at professionals in the sector that want to improve their competencies in these areas.

To enrol in this Postgraduate, it is essential to have previously completed the postgraduate in Facility Management Services.



Aims

To provide students with learning opportunities that will allow them to apply methodologies to control the management of Facility Services and their economics through the use of current Information Systems and Technologies. To do this, at the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Implement a Facility Management model in an organization.
  • Interpret the organization's balance sheet and results statement and calculate the main financial ratios for the economic control of the management of real estate and support services of an organization.
  • Prepare and monitor budgets for the management of real estate and support services of an organization.
  • Evaluate investments in assets, both real estate and equipment, in an organization, and calculate their amortization.
