UPF community charity initiatives against COVID-19
At such a challenging time, it is heartening that so many people have used their skills to help fight the coronavirus crisis. We are proud of the countless examples of UPF Barcelona School of Management alumni, teachers and management staff who have actively participated in the fight against COVID-19. We would like to take this opportunity to share their stories and recognise their efforts, with the pandemic’s heroes not only the healthcare services but also all of those who have contributed in whatever way possible to convert the crisis into one of opportunities.
