Toulouse Business School (formerly named ESC Toulouse) was founded in 1903 by the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Its Spanish campus, TBS Barcelona, was founded in 1996 and until 2013 as known as ESEC (after Escuela Superior Europea de Comercio, which means European Grand School of Commerce).
The Barcelona Campus offers the following programmes, fully taught in English: the Bachelor in Management, the Master in Management, MSc Marketing Management, MSc Finance, MSc Fashion and Luxury Marketing and Summer School programmes, all internationally recognised degrees that train the business sector’s future talents.
Researchers at TBS are actively engaging in professional associations, and communicating their expertise and ongoing learning in the most renowned international academic journals. At the same time, our research teams are focused on the needs of the business world, participating in the national and international arenas of research tendering.
More than 1200 professional advisers offer guidance to our students and work closely with our Career Starter service providing professional support and enabling TBS to provide dynamic teaching and preparation for a fast-changing business world – overall assurance of our graduates’ employability.
Students have bodies to represent them before the school's teaching faculty and administrative staff. There is also an association specifically for the Barcelona campus.
We recommend the students from outside of Barcelona looking for an accommodation in the city, to start the search as soon as possible. Barcelona is a city with a high number of students and a high accommodation offer, but there is also a great demand. TBS Barcelona has an Accommodation guide you can access to find different options (rent a flat, residences, rooms on shared flats, etc.) and contacts in order to make the search easier.
The library is located a few metres from the school’s main building. In addition to books, the library also has audiovisual materials, a newspaper library, reading rooms, and spaces to study and for meetings. Students also have access to considerable electronic depositories (databases, dissertations, papers, case studies, international news, etc.).
All students must have valid health insurance, whether public or private, during their stay in Barcelona. If you are a citizen of a Member State of the European Economic Area or Switzerland and are eligible for health coverage in your country, you are entitled to benefit from health care in the same conditions as insured Spaniards.
Studying at TBS Barcelona will give you the chance to enjoy a modern, cosmopolitan, dynamic, innovative city full of professional opportunities. Barcelona is the city in Spain with the second largest turnover and employment in foreign multinationals. It is also a pioneering city in encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit.

Because of its excellent climate, Barcelona is ideal for outdoor sports. In addition to a zeal for running and bike riding along the kilometres of beachfront and around Tibidabo and Collserola, the city’s parks are also excellent spots for sports.
If you are a TBS Barcelona student, you will also get a discount at the Holmes PLACE Urquinaona gym near the campus!
TBS WAY is the TBS Barcelona's student association, that seeks to integrate the student body through different activities like workshops, parties, sports tournaments, etc. All students can get involved!
