Welcome and congratulations on being accepted onto our MSc programme.


We receive a very high number of applications each year, and we operate a rigorous admissions process to ensure we only admit the highest performing students. To be here on campus with us – in a top university in one of Europe’s most attractive cities – is an achievement in itself, and one you should be very proud of.



These joint programs from the Department of Economics and Business of Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the Barcelona School of Management offer a truly international learning experience.  By studying here, you’ve chosen not only to receive an education from an internationally top-ranked faculty, but also to communicate with a diverse range of people from countries and cultures around the world.


Regardless of the specific program you belong to, the knowledge you acquire from your faculty and your classmates will help you to develop a deep and analytical understanding of the business world and will enable you to provide cutting-edge answers to ever-changing problems.


This blog is your online community. It’s where you’ll find advice and answers to common questions, profiles of your faculty, classmates and alumni, the latest programme news and events, academic research, and information about life in the wonderful, vibrant city of Barcelona. It will be updated regularly, so make sure you check in frequently to keep up to date.


Our MSc programmes are challenging, but ultimately incredibly rewarding. Your experience with us will shape your future and help you to develop academically and personally; we look forward to sharing it with you.
