Covid-19

The UPF Barcelona School of Management constantly monitors the health situation and takes recommended special measures to prevent the spread of the virus (SARS-CoV-2).

In order to maintain maximum teaching guarantees, we started the 2020–21 academic year with our adapted classrooms, new technological systems, and specific training for teachers. From the first moment, this transformation allowed us to offer simultaneous face-to-face and remote teaching, capable of responding to the new needs of our students.  

In this way, we continue to guarantee quality training, as well as active participation and collaboration in the classroom between students and teachers.

What we have learned from covid-19

The last few months of the pandemic have caused crises and also opened up opportunities. Many companies and organizations have seized these moments to reflect and grow or to change, while others were watching the world transform.

An analysis of these different positions allows us to take an evolutionary step as companies and as a society. As such, in collaboration with the Institute of Next and the Hunivers People Hub, and after learning about the vision of several dozen executives and managers of relevant companies, the UPF Barcelona School of Management has summarized the most inspiring elements of this time as knowledge pills. The contents have been prepared by Alfons Cornella, Esther Casademont, and Oriol Amat.
