The Barcelona GSE enjoys close collaboration with these academic units in teaching and research as well as in the shared use of resources. This combination of innovation and accumulated experience is one of the unique features of the Barcelona GSE. The affiliated professors of the Barcelona GSE constituted the academic community of the School, and all of them are tenured or tenure-track faculty members from its four academic units.
The Barcelona Graduate School of Economics is a large 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.
At the Barcelona GSE, education and research are closely linked. Key factors for the continued top performance of our researchers have been: the co-organization of the PhD programs in Economics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), the development of new research activities such as the Barcelona GSE Summer Forum; and the achievement of competitive funding programs such as the Severo Ochoa Research Excellence Distinction.
In addition to the many grants and awards that our faculty receive, the quality and quantity of the scientific production among the entire Barcelona GSE research community positions us well in international research rankings such as RePEC.
Such ambitious objectives would not be possible without the support and partnership of institutions and companies that have collaborated with the School from day one: the Barcelona GSE Scientific Council, our Board of Trustees, and our sponsors.
