Barcelona Graduate School of Economics

Barcelona Graduate School of Economics is an institution dedicated to academic rigor, open-minded thinking, and scientific impact. We do this by bringing together four of Europe’s top Economics research groups, all located in the city we call home: 

  • Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) Department of Economics and Business 
  • Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) Unit of Economic Analysis 
  • Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE-CSIC) 
  • Center for Research in International Economics (CREI)

Our rigorous Master’s programs are designed and taught by researchers from these four academic units. They are our Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors, our core teaching faculty of more than 150 accomplished researchers and instructors who exemplify the pursuit of excellence that we aim to instill in every student.
