About UIBS / Discover Barcelona




Beyond our challenging academic curriculum, students get to experience Spain’s second largest city, the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and one of Europe's most diverse student communities, in an exciting way. Courses are organized in our own International Education Center, located in the city center around the corner from Plaça de Catalunya. The main train station is only minutes away by metro and offers direct high-speed connections to other major Spanish cities, including Madrid, Malaga, Sevilla and Valencia. The campus is easily accessible by bike, car, and public transport.

Right at the heart of Catalonia, Barcelona is a city that is fully alive day and night. The rich historical and cultural heritage, economic activity, and its central location, have always made Barcelona a city attracted by merchants, businessmen, artists and travelers. A metropolis of exciting contrasts, Barcelona blends Gothic and timeless modern art and architecture with extraordinary design.

Barcelona is also a center of international cultural interest, the home of such artists as Picasso, Gaudí, Miró, and Dalí. Besides the area's exceptional climate, numerous beaches, natural parks and shopping possibilities, Barcelona offers a variety of entertainment, leisure and relaxation options.  Living and studying in Barcelona is truly an exciting and wonderful experience!

The establishment of the European Union has made Spain into one of its most important economic centers. In this dynamic community, students are encouraged to participate in various economic activities and social events.

We consider networking as important as the academic curriculum, since lifelong contacts made while studying at an international business school such as ours will unquestionably be beneficial when embarking on professional activities in the future. We are certain that the time spent in Barcelona will complete your European experience and will remain as one of your greatest memories! Make sure though to consider studying also at one of our other campuses for an even greater experience.
