MBA – Master in Business Administration


Global Business School Barcelona invites students to participate in one of the most innovative MBA degree programs in Barcelona, Spain and in Europe. Our approach to business education aims to change the very concept of MBA and prepare the business leaders needed in today’s highly globalized world.

The MBA degree program has been designed to develop one of the MBA programs in Barcelona which looks at alternative ways of knowing and doing business. At Global Business School Barcelona we recognize that capital, trade flows, and information have become increasingly global; that countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China are the markets and production sites of the future; that the integration processes in Europe are irreversible; and that businesses around the world must learn to adapt to a wide variety of local, national, and regional rules, regulations, business cultures, and social norms.

That is why the participants of our MBA degree program learn to develop greater cultural sensitivity and cultural awareness. At Global Business School Barcelona we teach our students to work comfortably and efficiently with people who have totally different values and behavior. The MBA program curriculum ensures that the future business leaders acquire skills and sensitivities which constitute a kind of cultural intelligence – the ability to understand and respond appropriately to the unknown behaviors, words, and gestures of people from different cultures, countries and backgrounds.
