MSc in Economics student Ricard Grèbol Jiménez awarded Masters of Excellence scholarship from Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation

MSc in Economics student at the UB School of Economics Ricard Grèbol Jiménez has been awarded a Masters of Excellence scholarship from the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation. These grants are aimed at students with excellent academic records who are enrolled on high-quality master’s degrees at Catalan universities. “This merit scholarship is a great help which allows me to focus on my studies and, at the same time, is an encouragement to keep working hard”, he said.

Being a graduate in Physics and Chemistry, Grèbol Jiménez explained that: “I decided to do the Msc in Economics of the University of Barcelona because I thought the two-year programme was the adequate for those students coming from other backgrounds and that were interested on research in economics”. With the Masters of Excellence scholarships, the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera wants to attract and retain the best talent, promote excellence and contribute to making Catalonia a world leader in excellent postgraduate studies.

The Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation granted the “Excellent Master’s Degree” status to the MSc in Economics at the UB School of Economics because it has a global reach, it is fully taught in English, faculty members are world renowned researchers and it is clearly research-oriented. “I still do not know what I will do after the programme but I am really interested on pursuing an academic career”, Grèbol Jiménez added.
