IQS School of Management is part of a century-old university base in Barcelona, founded by Jesuits as part of Ramon Llull University. Offering undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes, the university is considered to be one of the most prestigious in both the national and international rankings.
The IQS School of Management is recognised as one of the best undergraduate schools for business administration in Spain and is known too for its specialist master’s programmes. As a flagship of its master’s programmes, the Master’s in Global Entrepreneurial Management allows students to learn about global management and entrepreneurship in each of the three continents where the programme is taught. The programme runs from September until December at IQS School of Management, Ramon Llull University (Barcelona, Spain), from January until April at Fu Jen Catholic University (Taipei, Taiwan), and from May until August at the University of San Francisco (San Francisco, USA). All three institutions fall within approximately the top 12 per cent of business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (www.aacsb.edu).
Among several international partnerships, IQS School of Management has agreements with the Free University of Berlin, Grenoble School of Management, the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan; and in the US with Ohio University, Pennsylvania State University, University of San Francisco, Loyola University, and several others.
Employing a comprehensive teaching methodology that has been proven to equip students with the skills necessary for creating, leading and managing industrial and technology-based organisations, the school’s ethos is also based on deeply held values derived from a Christian conception of life.
