As part of our unwavering commitment to the highest academic standards, we established the Barcelona GSE Scientific Council to provide strategic guidance and to work with us to ensure the quality and performance of our academic programs and research activities.

The Scientific Council is chaired by Prof. Hugo Sonnenschein, President Emeritus of the University of Chicago. The Council is further composed of more than 30 leading academics – including 12 Nobel Laureates in Economics – who help to forge and enhance relationships between the Barcelona GSE and the wider academic community.

Members of the Scientific Council come to Barcelona every two years to analyze the educational activities, research initiatives, and institutional development of the Barcelona GSE.
