Ten years ago, in October 2002, the Barcelona Business School was established by a team of academics as an independent private business school focusing on flexible business and management studies, and mainly targeting international students. Today, the Barcelona Business School is one of several schools that make up the United International Business Schools organization (UIBS).
The Barcelona Business School started out with academic year 2002-2003 on the first floor of a residential building on Paseo Sant Gervasio in the northern part of the city. The campus was approximately 250 square meters in size and enabled the school to start with a limited number of students. Later in 2006, upon continuation of the school’s operations by UIBS, the school moved to its current facilities on Calle Aragon in the Eixample business district. Approximately 400 square meters in an office building gave the school improved facilities and further growth possibilities.
Currently, with a continuously growing number of students, the time was right for the school to take the next step in its carefully planned growth stage, moving to a very modern office building on Rambla de Catalunya 2-4, located literally right around the corner from Placa Catalunya, Barcelona’s main square.
The new campus, where classes will be organized from January 2012 onwards, boasts several large classrooms for up to 24 students, a dedicated student lounge with kitchen, and sufficient office and open work space. The classrooms will be fitted with leather seats, spacious tables, flipcharts and whiteboards, individual air-conditioning regulators, and wireless high-speed internet access. Pictures of the new campus will be posted in the near future on our Facebook page as well as in our photo gallery. Details on how to reach the new campus will be announced on the contact page of our website.
We very much look forward to another 10 successful years and would hereby like to take the opportunity to thank all of our students, faculty, staff, partners, and especially our alumni for their continued dedication and enthusiasm towards the school’s past and future endeavors.
Thank you for an amazing 10 years in Barcelona!
