Challenge Garage: a Networking Experience for all Masters of Science

BSM offers Master of Science students the possibility of participating in real business projects and professional networking events. The Challenge Garage is an innovation project which promotes the interaction between local start-ups and SMEs and the school's Master of Science students. The aim of the project is to identify the real challenges of today's companies and use them to generate new business. Every year the Challenge Garage is organized as a parallel activity to the Master of Science's regular classes as a way to put BSM's teaching methodology into practise.



Face-to-face masters programs, postgraduate courses and short courses at UPF Barcelona School of Management combine active student participation with the teaching of theoretical and practical concepts. This type of learning focuses on discussing and resolving case studies in the classroom and applying the knowledge acquired to real-life situations.
