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 favours the interaction between local start-ups and SMEs and the school's Master of Science students.

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. Face-to face programs use Aula Global, the virtual campus, to maintain continuity between classroom sessions.
