About

UB Economics is a platform that centralizes and coordinates research in economics at the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Barcelona (UB). Its mission is to build a reputation for internationally excellent research in major fields of economics.

UB Economics pools the key strengths of the faculty in three research areas: Growth, Trade and Spatial Economics; Public Economics and Policy Analysis; Behaviour, Games and Risk.

UB Economics offers two postgraduate programs taught entirely in English: the university master’s degree in Economics and the doctoral program in Economics. The master’s degree is a two-year program designed to provide students with the analytical and quantitative skills they will need to work in the public and private sector or to conduct research. The doctoral program has been distinguished with the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science quality award.

UB Economics aims to create an environment through which the faculty can excel, attracting new researchers at both senior and junior levels. It provides technical support to researchers for funding applications, project management and the dissemination of results, and aims to promote the transmission of major findings outside the academic setting by increasing interaction with wider society.

UB Economics will contribute actively to the goal of consolidating Barcelona’s status as a European capital of economic research and a pole of attraction for international students and researchers.
