Mission: To provide an education that, based on freedom and personal responsibility, allows its students to develop their full intellectual and human potential. To achieve this, the IAU is committed to providing professional training with high academic standards, contributing to expanding the frontiers of knowledge through high-level research and transferring this knowledge for the benefit of society.
Vision: To achieve its Mission, the University is clear that it must deliver the fundamental knowledge and skills of the discipline that the students have chosen when choosing their classrooms, but not only this. Furthermore, it involves, on the one hand, developing skills and abilities that are transversal to the chosen programs and, on the other hand, cultivating values that are indispensable for inserting oneself into a complex society. Among these, freedom and responsibility are at the base of the university project of the IAU. Freedom means valuing diversity, freedom of thought, inquiry, creation and entrepreneurship, open discussion of ideas and, in short, the possibility of making decisions without coercion in the various spheres of life. All these virtues are indispensable not only to face professional and personal life but also to develop a university. Responsibility, on the other hand, implies being willing and prepared to respond in a rigorous, rational, deliberative and ethically sound manner to the challenges of professional work, as well as to assume the consequences of the decisions taken. We believe that this vision of education cannot be fully achieved if the university does not generate new knowledge, transfer it to society, and draw on society to develop increasingly relevant training programs and ask more appropriate research questions.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.

These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
