Unimet has achieved to establish its own academic model, which objective is to prepare graduates with a comprehensive education, relevant professional competencies, management and enterprising skills, and commitment to local and global environment. The model is under constant revision and adjustment, and its strength is based on the institution’s ability to adapt to the challenges posed by the transformation process towards a knowledge society.
The Unimet educational model is oriented towards fulfilling the mission of the university, which fundamental aspects are a solid comprehensive education, development of leadership and enterprising skills, command of the English language, linkage and commitment to society, and relation with the productive sector.
Considering the aforementioned conceptual bases, and the particular challenges of the Venezuelan reality, those responsible for the academic management of the university have established the premises on which the educational model is based on. Also, the model is implemented through the development of four educational areas (Four pillars of learning in the 21st Century. Delors Report, UNESCO, 1998):
- Learning to be: Areas of general and common basic education.
- Learning to live together: Area of social development (through social practices).
- Learning to do: Area of competency and enterprising skills development.
- Learning to know: Area of knowledge building.
