Commitment to Quality

The Barcelona School of Economics is committed to generating and continuously improving the quality of our learning environment to ensure that our students have an exceptional educational and personal experience, one that provides access to rigorous research and expertise and enhances their future careers and lifelong connections.

To do this, we have in place an Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS) that enables us to continuously improve our advanced education programs across all dimensions. Our professors and staff not only follow this IQAS, but are continuously thinking and acting so as to improve the quality of the BSE educational programs.

The IQAS assures that needs are detected and that high quality is continuously achieved. The system facilitates the analysis, identification, and implementation of improvements that are addressed in all areas of interest.

Institutional and program accreditations

The BSE has received institutional accreditation and certification of the internal quality system from the Quality Agency for the Catalan University System (AQU), the public agency entrusted with the assessment, accreditation and certification of quality in the universities and higher education institutions in Catalonia. AQU is a member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).

All BSE Master's degrees have been successfully accredited by AQU, first through processes for each degree program and now under the institutional accreditation. Therefore, all BSE Master's degrees are recognized as Official Masters within the framework of the Bologna Process.

Beyond the required accreditation, our Master's degrees have achieved additional dimensions such as employment outcomes, internationalization, and research-teaching linkages.
