Teaching Faculty

The academic excellence of the Barcelona GSE rests on the talent, enthusiasm, and drive of our teaching and research faculty. A community of Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors working on Economics, Finance, Data Science, and related areas is drawn from four top-flight academic units, offering students the possibility for regular, direct contact with leading instructors in their field.

Barcelona GSE professors are very approachable, sharing their ideas with our competitive and passionate pool of master's students. Many of our Affiliated Professors have been part of the Barcelona GSE since its foundation and have extensive experience teaching in our master programs.
