The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall direction of the school, guiding and drawing up rules for governance. It adopts the budget and appoints an Honorary President and a Chairman, who serve as Trustees, and further names the Director and the Academic Committee.

The Board is made up of representatives of the founding academic institutions (UPF, UAB, IAE-CSIC, and CREI), private institutions (AXA Research Fund, Banc Sabadell, "la Caixa" Savings Bank, and the FemCAT Foundation), public institutions (the Ministry of Economy and Knowledge of the Catalan Government, and the Barcelona City Council), and several distinguished academics in the field of Economics.
