The academic excellence of the Barcelona GSE rests on the talent, enthusiasm, and drive derived from our faculty. A community of over 150 Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors working on Economics, Finance, Data Science, and related areas is drawn from four top-flight academic units:
- 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 faculty enjoy close working relationships between academic units in teaching and research as well as in the shared use of educational facilities and resources.
All Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors are involved in the teaching and research activities of the School. In addition to Affiliated Professors, faculty include Guest Professors from other institutions, post-docs and visiting researchers.
