Modern crises and emerging challenges have called established economic models into question. In 2006, as thought leaders in countries all over the globe were re-examining our understanding of economic science, a group of highly renowned professors and economists envisioned the need for a graduate school that could produce research and train professionals with the preparation and expertise to tackle these complex issues.We enjoy close collaboration with our academic units in teaching and research, as well as in the shared use of resources. Our affiliated professors, the core of the BSE academic community, are all tenured or tenure-track faculty members of the academic units.The Barcelona School of Economics is a community of researchers, professors, students, and alumni who all share the school’s core spirit: to create value for society with rigorous work and social responsibility through pioneering research and education.
Our key mission is to facilitate the training of the next generation of economists and data scientists by offering world-class programs taught by leading faculty in their fields. We seek outstanding, motivated students and provide them with a top-notch education and values that will make them exceptional global experts with intellectual rigor and critical thinking skills. During their time with us, our students have direct contact with professors and practitioners whose insights from academia and industry are part of the curriculum.
