Instituto Universitario Ortega-Marañón

Introduction

Founded in 1986, the Instituto Universitario Ortega-Marañón is a postgraduate and research center equivalent, in essence, to the graduate schools of North American universities. Our academic activity is developed in four areas of knowledge: Government, administration and public policies; Leadership, politics and communication; Spanish culture and language; Humanities and Health Sciences.

We provide a wide and varied training offer in person, blended and online , where our Doctorate programs, official university Master's degrees, Master's degrees, expert and specialist courses, executive programs, seminars, workshops and continuing training courses stand out.

Research is also one of the central core of the University Institute. It is channeled through research projects and teams that articulate their activities through seminars and specialized centers on areas of study that support their academic activity, such as our School of Politics and High Government, Goberna.

The teaching model is characterized by the participation of academics from the best international universities. It also promotes a rigorous scientific methodology and innovative techniques appropriate to the needs of a world in continuous change. This formula allows the student to develop leadership skills along with critical thinking in the face of the problems and challenges that exist today in our society, in addition to taking advantage of the synergies that occur between the academic and professional worlds, thanks to an extensive offer of internships. in companies and active inclusion in different scientific networks.

Its organizational structure is integrated into the Ortega-Marañón Foundation , an institution born in 2010 as a result of the merger of the José Ortega y Gasset Foundation (established in 1978) and the Gregorio Marañón Foundation (established in 1988). Inspired by the disposition and spirit of its owners, as well as by the significance that both intellectuals had for the society of their time. The Ortega y Gasset University Research Institute was the first university institute promoted and managed in Spain by a private entity, the José Ortega y Gasset-Gregorio Marañón Foundation, and attached to a public university, the Complutense University of Madrid.

Campus Life & Facilities

The Ortega-Marañón University Research Institute (IUIOM) teaches online programs through a modern Virtual Campus with easy-to-use Moodle support (the system used by most universities) that allows you to take the classroom to your home computer or your own cell phone. The Virtual Campus is an online teaching and interaction platform that offers teaching staff and training participants the possibility of establishing fluid and continuous communication throughout the training process. It also provides educational support for formal in-person training and a basic tool for the development of virtual sessions. We have all the necessary tools so that you can take 100% advantage of your study program.

At the IUIOM we have wanted to go further, so that the training experience is not limited to the stay in the classroom (both in-person and virtual). We want our students to be part of a network of thousands of people in which, in addition to former students of the different training programs, people with an interest in the cultural and academic activity of the Ortega-Marañón Foundation are connected.

Student Services

Seguimiento personalizado

We have a team of professionals - tutor teachers - who monitor the participants' performance daily, verifying their degree of participation in the training activities and the results they obtain in the module evaluations. They regularly update the virtual campus with news of interest to students, and send reminders of the tasks that they must carry out, according to the academic calendar. The monitoring carried out by the tutors is key to guiding the participants in time management and keeping them motivated during the development of the program.

Monitoring is carried out taking into account the profile and needs of each student. The virtual campus tools are used to obtain information about the participants' access to the program content, and their involvement in the discussion or debate activities. Additionally, personalized contacts are made by email and by telephone calls to find out the causes of low student participation, if this occurs. During face-to-face sessions, students can hold meetings with tutors to establish the most appropriate communication channels throughout the program.

Students have a series of tools that allow them to make daily queries about the content of the modules and transmit, to those responsible for the program, any incident that may arise in its development. The tutors keep a record of the queries made by the participants and are committed to providing a response within a period of no more than 72 hours.

The tutorials are carried out by activating virtual forums or arranging telephone calls between the participants and the module coordinators. In any case, it is up to the program management to define the most appropriate modality, depending on the needs of the modules and the number of participants enrolled in the program.

Consultations with teachers must be made through the virtual campus, avoiding the use of email. Inquiries can be directed through the forums or direct messages.

streaming

The use of streaming in courses taught online fosters closer contact between faculty and students, and encourages participation. The course teaching guides specify the dates and times of the sessions that will be held via streaming . For those participants who cannot connect at the moment, the sessions will be recorded so that they can view them whenever they wish.

In the final part of the streaming , students will have the possibility to ask the teachers of each module live, in order to clarify or expand on those aspects that they consider appropriate.
