"Quality" and "Towards Excellence" mentions

This program has its origin in the Doctorate Program "New Trends in Business Management", of inter-university character since its inception (universities of Salamanca, Valladolid, Burgos), which obtained the mention of quality by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Government of Spain by Resolution of May 28, 2003 (reference: MCD2003-00116), renewed since then -year by year- until the academic year 2006-2007 (Resolution of August 11, 2006, Official State Bulletin of August 30, 2006).

Once converted to the new European Higher Education Area, approval was obtained to offer it as part of the Official Postgraduate Degree in Business Economics (the University of León joining the title). This new doctorate was again recognized with the Mention of Quality by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Spanish Government from the academic year 2007-2008 to 2010-2011 (BOE 245 of October 12, 2007); and subsequently with the Mention of Excellence (MEE2011-0348) of the Ministry of Education for the academic years 2011-2012 to 2013-2014 (Resolution of October 6, 2011 of the General Secretary of Universities).
