Message from Teresa Garcia-Milà, Director of the Barcelona GSE and Ramon Marimon, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

We are proud to present the annual report of the Barcelona GSE for the academic year of 2017-18. The indicators published in this report are a good illustration that the Barcelona GSE continues to grow as one of the leading Economics institutes for both research and graduate education. The evidence of this can be seen through the quality of the students we have, their successful placements, and the continuing international recognition we receive for our research quality. It is thanks to the work of everyone involved in the Barcelona GSE, that we are able to strive forward with more initiatives and successes, year after year, and that we look ahead with confidence.
