Harbour.Space was founded in 2015 by Svetlana Velikanova, Kamran Elahian (founder of 3x unicorns), and Ingo Beyer von Morgenstern (Emeritus Head of European and Asian High-Tech, Telecom and Media Practice, McKinsey & Co), with its first campus in Barcelona, Spain.
In 2018, in partnership with the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce established an overseas campus in Bangkok, Thailand.
Harbour.Space is a university for the innovative, the future-minded and the change-hungry. Our philosophy is based on three fundamental pillars - a link to the industry, a modern and agile educational model, and a network of exceptional innovators and entrepreneurs ready to co-create the businesses of the future.
We offer progressive Foundation, Bachelor’s, and Master’s programmes where real-world problems take centre stage in the classroom, not textbook challenges. Our academic year is divided into 15 intense 3-week modules, and acts as an accelerator for entrepreneurs, an innovation lab for creatives, and a hands-on learning experience for tech-lovers.
The fast-paced growth in innovation, communication and technology is forcing a quiet revolution in education, leaving many traditional universities struggling to keep up.
We aim to redefine the learning experience by offering active experience-based education, driven by some of the worlds’ top industry leaders. Our transformative learning approach enhances reflective, critical, and systems thinking and encourage collaborative innovation.
Harbour.Space is more than a university - it’s a community, an incubator, and a bridge between students and the professional industry. Here, education empowers the talented minds of new generations to create a positive social impact on our future.
After three generations of students, we are proud to say we have a >90% job placement rate (53% getting jobs before graduating) and several growing student startups. Our students are anything but ordinary. They include programming bootcamp winners, math olympiad champions, up and coming designers, and determined young entrepreneurs. They can be found working at places like Amazon, IBM, Rakuten, Google, Accenture, Deloitte, EF (Education First), Zeptolabs and Toptal among others.

Our aim is to be there for our students from the very beginning of their studies until graduation. We help with individual career counselling, searching for internships, vacant jobs and apprenticeships, which often lead to a full-time job upon graduation.
We are committed to building a unique professional and corporate network of investors and employers that would recruit our highly regarded international graduates, on-campus and online.
We have stocked up on all the must-read books in Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Design, Engineering and others. A lot of the authors are also teachers at Harbour.Space so you may even get a signed copy.
Being a Harbour.Space student is about more than what happens inside the classroom. It's about becoming part of the Harbour.Space family and finding your own place to thrive. Our students live, lead and grow each year creating multiple clubs and organizations. Choose from cultural events, such as Friendsgiving, sports activities like Futbol, and adventurous hikes and weekend trips to Montserrat or Siges.
No matter what, there’s a place for you.
Barcelona is really great for sports. Any water sports, city sports, great football, tennis and any types of athletics are all just one click away.

Harbour.Space is a great modern university, but lacks a lot of structure in teaching and course layout. Computer Science program is grossly mismanaged and leaves you with entry level knowledge at graduation. A lot of the teachers speak poor English and have little to no teaching experience. Overall, very unpleasant despite the pretty image portrayed.
I really like that the professors are top professionals from the industry and the lecture contain very relevant material for my professional career. Also the small classes provide a good experience. Sometimes it could be a bit more organized.
I do not think there is a better digital marketing program in Europe. I already had marketing experience and a solid understanding of DM before Harbour. Space, however, what I gained here is priceless. You learn and gather experience from the best Digital Marketing Practitioners in the world. It's simply impossible to obtain this knowledge on the web.
