We are dedicated to academic rigor, open-minded thinking, and scientific impact. We do this by bringing together four of Europe’s top Economics research groups:
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.
The joint efforts of our academic units have positioned the Barcelona GSE among the world's top research groups. Evidence of our research community's strength includes competitive research rankings (RePEc), three consecutive Severo Ochoa Excellence Accreditations (2012-2015; 2016-2019; 2020-23), and the consolidation of the Barcelona GSE Summer Forum as the premier annual conference in Europe for top researchers.
Our Career Services team provides students and alumni with a portfolio of resources to support their career development and prepare for a successful job search.
We also work with recruiters and the Barcelona GSE network of faculty and alumni to identify placement opportunities that match the quality and caliber of our Master's graduates.97% career placement success rate
