Study Methodology

Our academic methodology emphasizes an integrative, entrepreneurial spirit and hands-on approach. From individual activities to group discussions and case analysis, our students are encouraged to participate and deal with actual scenarios and business challenges. Professors facilitate and ignite the exchange of ideas by sharing their own real life professional experiences hence truly enriching the lectures.

The online modality of the programs allows the students to earn a degree and a good education without having to leave their current commitments, while the on campus study experience gives the students the chance to take on local internships, have company visits and enjoy the student life in Barcelona.

In terms of quality of the education, both the online and on campus methodologies offer the same quality, simply delivered in two different channels, depending on each student’s personal situation.

Specific to Master’s Degrees

In both, the online and on campus modalities of the masters degree programs, the students are expected to develop a final master’s project right from the start of their studies. The two options are writing a business plan or writing a case study analysis for an existing company. This way the students can choose to practice their managerial and entrepreneurial skills through a long-term constructive exercise.

Most of the masters programs start off with a business administration program that includes finance, marketing, operations management among others, which are meant to be the foundation of managerial knowledge. The students then continue to specialize in their chosen line of profession.

We are continuously seeking new ways to expand our students’ experience to ensure they gain valuable skills, insights, knowledge and networking opportunities.

Professors

BEBS was created by executives for executives, which is why, most of our professors come with extensive entrepreneurial experience. They are top executives who combine their business leadership and managerial work while teaching.
Thanks to our professors, our students are empowered to participate in critical analysis, projects and initiatives, that enable every student to tap their best potential in an open and welcoming environment.
