UPF’s international delegates

[21/03/13]

How is the UPF seen from Latin America? Can a country's economic and political context influence its training needs? What are the Pompeu Fabra University's relations with Latin American companies and institutions? What do double bachelor's degree programmes provide? How to bridge the gap between the world of science and society?

Our international delegates from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Uruguay and Colombia, all alumni from the Barcelona School of Management and IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra, answer these and other questions.

How did studying in Barcelona change your life? Was there a before and an after your studies? Did you make a good decision? What did it allow you to study? What did you most like about studying at our institution? How were you received in Barcelona? Can you feel close despite studying by distance learning?

Our international delegates from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Uruguay and Colombia, all alumni from the Barcelona School of Management and IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra, answer these and other questions.
