Funding for top candidates

The Barcelona School of Economics offers funding in order to attract and retain the most talented students.

Applicants who receive an offer of admission to BSE have demonstrated their potential to succeed in our rigorous, intensive Master’s programs. The most talented candidates also receive a financial offer that covers all or part of their tuition fees.

This merit-based funding comes from generous public and private sponsors as well as BSE’s own resources.

Each year, we award an average of 800,000€ in merit-based funding to Master's students. Around 36% of matriculated students have received full or partial funding for their studies. 

Types of funding that may be offered to candidates include:

  • Waivers covering 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of tuition fees
  • A limited number of fully-funded scholarships (100% of fees and some additional stipend, depending on the scholarship)

Only applicants with outstanding academic records will receive a financial offer. Candidates who submit a completed application before January 15 will be considered for all funding opportunities. Those who apply after that date will be considered for any remaining available funding.
