The UPF Barcelona School of Management (UPF-BSM) has been distinguished for the second consecutive year with the recognition of academic excellence in the EdUniversal Best Business Schools Ranking 2022. With the award of four "Palms of Excellence", the international ranking reaffirms UPF-BSM as "Top Business School with Significant International Influence", in the "Best Business Schools in Spain" section. 

With the renewal of the four "Palms d'Excellence", the ranking reaffirms UPF-BSM as "Top Business School with Significant International Influence"

"Obtaining this recognition for the second consecutive year shows that we are doing things well and that the visibility and internationalisation strategy adopted is the right one", said the Director General of the UPF-BSM, José M. Martínez-Sierra, who insisted on the importance of distinctions such as the Palms of Excellence, as "they endorse our reputation and reaffirm our present and future commitment to international standards of excellence". 

For his part, the Dean of the UPF-BSM,  Llorenç Bagur, celebrated the result and considered it an "honour" that the distinction comes, among others, from the "assessment of nearly a thousand deans of the world's leading business schools".

The result stems from EdUniversal's annual survey of nearly 1,000 deans of the world's top business schools, as well as other metrics that score the level of excellence

Moreover, this milestone is in addition to the recognition obtained from EQUIS in the 2021-2022 academic year, which positions UPF-BSM as the first business school linked to a public university in Spain to achieve it, as well as the AMBA accreditation, obtained in the 2020-2021 academic year. Both distinctions place the school just one accreditation away from achieving the triple crown, the highest international distinction.  

Recently, UPF Barcelona School of Management has entered for the first time in the QS Business Masters Ranking 2023, positioning the MSc in Finance and Banking and the MSc in Finance and Banking and the MSc in Marketing, among the top 4 in Spain and the top 25 in the world in the category of research leadership thanks to its impact and academic reputation.
