UPF Barcelona School of Management was founded in 2011 with a clear objective: to produce professionals qualified in business management and public administration, providing them with the most advanced knowledge and techniques to help them succeed in the current labour market.

About Barcelona School of Management

This is done by bringing business studies and purely scientific knowledge together: the science of business. From the use of rigorous data, empirical evidence and information that has been tested and proven we obtain true objective knowledge. This is our mission: to guarantee our students an education that is worthwhile, valuable and based on reality.

The school's methodology has three cornerstones:

  • Evidence-based management: Business management based on empirical evidence. We are committed to learning through rigorous research and analytical capacity.
  • Entrepreneurship and innovation: Entrepreneurial spirit and innovation. We believe that behind every challenge lies an opportunity.
  • Engaged social value: Social commitment through collaboration, cooperation and co-creation. Joining forces helps us to construct more interesting and ambitious projects.
  • UPF Barcelona School of Management sees education as a union between university and business. This is why all programmes are developed by UPF's most prestigious academics together with renowned professionals in leading businesses and public bodies.

Governing bodies

UPF Barcelona School of Management is part of the UPF's Institute of Continuing Education's Foundation, a private, non-profit institution governed by a Board of Trustees, a Governing Council and a Council of Studies. The Board of Trustees is presided over by the Rector of Pompeu Fabra University and it is made up, besides UPF, of an important group of companies and institutions which directly designate the persons who represent them. The Governing Council is the ordinary governing body which proceeds from the Board of Trustees. The Council of Studies is made up of people of UPF and outside UPF with outstanding experience and qualifications in different fields of knowledge. Its function is to advise on and evaluate the academic program, to ensure that it is suited to the needs of companies and the society as a whole and to promote the ongoing program of quality and improvement.

International presence

UPF Barcelona School of Management contributes to Pompeu Fabra University’s international dimension, offering masters postgraduates and courses, not just in Barcelona but worldwide. Through delegates, chapters and advisory councils we seek out potential educational needs that are specifically tailored to the region and thus establish ourselves in local social and business networks.

Custom educational programs: We provide businesses and public administrations with an opportunity to develop in-company training programs with UPF’s highly-qualified team of professionals and teaching staff.
