At the UPF Barcelona School of Management, we are committed to the continuous improvement of the organization's governing processes, our program syllabus, our teaching staff and our educational model. It is a commitment to excellence made to the students who choose to study with us and to all stakeholders in the school.
Moreover, the focus on organizational processes and culture encourages us to evolve towards more agile, flexible and fluid organizational models, which in turn enable the school to transform itself and adapt quickly to change.
To ensure this continuous improvement, a Quality Committee reviews and approves the self-assessment and accreditation processes. This review ensures that the professional university education we provide is appropriate and in line the expectations of today's labour market and society.

- Analysing and monitoring the quality indicators for qualifications.
- Analysing and monitoring the quality indicators in the Integrated Scorecard (Cuadro de Mando Integral - CMI).
- Reviewing and approving the monitoring reports for qualifications.
- Reviewing and approving the accreditation self-reports.
- Producing, reviewing and approving the quality policy and objectives.

Since June 2020, the UPF Barcelona School of Management is one of 10 centres institutionally accredited by the Catalan University System Quality Assurance Agency (AQU). This institutional accreditation from AQU Catalunya means that our school has accredited all the official degrees and masters that it offers, for a renewable five-year period.
In 2021, we obtained the AMBA accreditation, which positions us among the world's leading management schools and makes us one of only six business schools in Spain to receive the AMBA accreditation.
The International Association of Masters in Business Administration (AMBA & BGA) thus recognizes the academic quality and reputation of our EMBA and Master of Science in Management programs.
