The entire Barcelona GSE community benefits from the expertise and exacting standards of the economists, academics, and industry leaders who advise the School on a regular basis. These advisors include our Scientific Council, our Board of Trustees, our academic and units committees, and our partners and sponsors.

Here are just some of the ways our advisors get directly involved in the Barcelona GSE's academic and research activities:

After the public celebrations, the Council members convened at Bellaterra Campus (UAB) for their periodic meeting, held every two or three years, to discuss the BGSE's progress and provide strategic direction.
