SDG 8 – Decent work and economic growth
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
- The University of Andorra offers the local population opportunities for higher studies, in this way contributing to country’s future economic development and improving employment conditions. According to integration into employment studies conducted by the Andorran Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, the employability of University of Andorra graduates is practically 100%.
- The UdA helps to ensure that Andorran people have access to decent, qualified work. Some 40% of graduates obtain a salary increase of between 10% and 25% the year after completing their studies.
- The University directly employs around forty people full-time, and gives part-time employment to 250 outside partners. The payments and investments made by the institution in the exercise of its activity also have an impact on the country’s economy: it is estimated that the UdA’s economic contribution to Andorra’s GDP is 0.16%.
- UdA staff enjoy flexible working hours, the chance to telework for part of the day, and a generous policy of allowing leave to ensure the personal, family and work balance.
- In its business courses, the UdA trains professionals to manage and administer organisations that contribute to our country’s economic growth.
- The Research Group on Economics and Laws promotes projects focused on the intangible assets involved in managing a company, organisations’ human and intellectual capital, organisational learning and its relationship with the generation of knowledge, quality of service in organisations and customer satisfaction in the hotel sector. All this, with the aim of contributing to the advancement of science in these specific areas.
