UB School of Economics highlights of 2017: Recap of a great year!
The year 2017 has been extraordinary for the UB School of Economics. The last 365 days have brought many reasons to celebrate. Last January we saw the establishment of the new research group IPERG led by Professor Carles Boix, who has been awarded a European Research Council (ERC) grant. More recently, the research institute Barcelona Economic Analysis Team (BEAT) was officially launched last October. Finally, the centre has welcomed three new Job Market hires in the area of Economics.
As far as our postgraduate programmes are concerned, the MSc in Economics has been awarded to the Accreditation with Excellence and the Additional Dimension of Internationalisation with the maximum overall score. New agreements for Erasmus+ mobility with the University of Amsterdam and the Catholic University of Milan have also been reached in the past 12 months.
We have also learnt that our master’s and PhD graduates have entered successful academic and professional careers, which makes us extremely happy. We wish the same luck to the new generations of students. In September, we welcomed 28 new MSc in Economics students from all over the world, with a large proportion of students from Europe and the Americas. Our PhD community also keeps growing, with 13 new students this year.
