The Executive MBA at UPF Barcelona School of Management (in Spanish) will turn you into a multifunctional executive with excellent leadership abilities and skills in developing new business initiatives.

The Executive MBA is based on the value of innovation. Designed to train professionals to provide transformative solutions for society, the economy and the sciences, the course will make you re-evaluate your professional skills in order to rapidly adapt them to an ever-changing reality full of challenges.

During the Executive MBA you will work on a professional challenge, a personalized project which you will define at the beginning of the course with a mentor. The project will serve to identify the areas of knowledge and the skills you will need to acquire throughout the course. The mentor will help you identify experts and businesses that may enhance your project. They will also suggest activities related to the latest training techniques (such as MOOC, OpenCourseWare, etc).

The program is taught by managers from leading companies, as well as lecturers from Pompeu Fabra University's internationally renowned Department of Economics and Business that have designed their courses applying the Flipped learning methodology.

The Executive MBA is aimed at graduates, preferably with around five years work experience and who currently hold a position of responsibility.

Official degree accredited by the Agència per a la Qualitat del Sistema Universitari de Catalunya.
