What students and alumni say about the master's programs
The Barcelona GSE master program was strongly recommended to me by my supervisor at Bocconi University and by a friend who had a great experience here. Both pointed out the world-renowned faculty and the relevance and comprehensiveness of the topics covered. Furthermore, at the competition authority I worked for, names of Barcelona GSE faculty or alumni were mentioned regularly as being the leading experts in the field. I then came to Barcelona GSE earlier this year for a professional training and was so impressed with the level of the course that I decided to apply for the master the day after!
