Barcelona Business School, founded in 2002 by the Global Council for Management Education (GCME), became an integral part of the coordinating United International Business Schools (UIBS) organization in early 2006.
UIBS serves as an umbrella organization for schools, colleges and universities offering business and management education at the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level as well as corporate training and executive education programs.
UIBS is also active in the field of international networking between educational institutions and companies and organizations. Study abroad and exchange programs are developed and promoted in cooperation with the organization’s members and partners. GCME functions as the organization’s academic council.
Taking into consideration the never-ending trend towards globalization and the need for high-quality business and management education, plans were developed to open sister campuses in Antwerp (Belgium), Brussels (Belgium) and Valencia (Spain), some of Europe’s trendiest and fastest growing cities. The expansion will allow for an even greater international focus as students will have the option to easily switch between campuses and thus be provided with the opportunity to enrich their cultural knowledge even further.
