What will you get out of it?

Get to know first-hand Barcelona's innovative and entrepreneurial environment and apply this knowledge to your professional project.

The sessions will cover various topics from how to generate a business idea to how to target the market with marketing strategies or, for example, how to finance the project.

The MBA International Week is focused on the start-up ecosystem of Barcelona.

You will be immersed in the business environment of the city, with presentations by entrepreneurs, and visits to companies and innovation Hubs so that you will get to know another side of the city.
