Teaching Faculty

The academic excellence of the Barcelona School of Economics rests on the talent, enthusiasm, and drive of our teaching and research faculty. A community of BSE 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.

BSE professors are very approachable and happy to share and discuss ideas with students. Many of our Affiliated Professors have been part of the School since its foundation and have extensive experience teaching in our Master's programs.

In addition to this established academic community, top academics and practitioners from around the world are also invited to teach in the Master's programs as guest professors.
