Quality UPF-BSM


At UPF Barcelona School of Management (UPF-BSM) we are committed to constantly improving the governance of our organization, our degree plan, our faculty and our training model. It is a commitment to excellence with the students who choose us and with all the stakeholders of the institution.

Also, the care for organizational culture and processes drives us to evolve towards more agile, flexible and fluid organizational models that allow us to transform and adapt quickly to change.

To guarantee this continuous improvement, a Quality Commission reviews and approves our self-evaluation and accreditation processes. This review ensures that the professional university education we provide is adequate and meets the expectations of the labor market and today's society.
