A major economic power in Spain, Barcelona prides itself on a collection of innovative entrepreneurs and growing business industries. With a very reasonable cost of living and endless opportunities to play sports and socialize, Barcelona is the perfect location for your international business education.
With the city and beach at its doorstep and many flourishing businesses, Barcelona has rapidly become a center for young, creative talent, with hundreds of startups and entrepreneurs embarking on business ventures here. Home to FC Barcelona and acclaimed artists Salvador Dalí and Antoni Gaudí, the city has made a name for itself as the cosmopolitan capital of the Mediterranean coast.
A global city with a local identity, Spanish and Catalan influences can be seen at every turn and, while the city respects its traditional ties, it also welcomes new ideas with open arms. This is exemplified by Fira Barcelona, a venue that hosts events such as the Mobile World Congress, eFintech, and Bizbarcelona, attracting 2.5 million visitors and 30,000 companies each year.
Sea and the city
Whether it’s exploring the narrow streets of Gótico, or catching a free concert during La Mercè festival, stargazing at Bunkers del Carmel or strolling down Passeig de Gràcia - live Barcelona and make the experience yours.
Barcelona is a thriving setting for music, culture, sport, gastronomy and nightlife, famous for its cosmopolitan style and sun-soaked beaches. Barcelona has something for everyone and can be enjoyed throughout the seasons, from the biggest and best music events like Sónar and Primavera Sound in the summer, to beachside nightclubs and traditional street fiestas in the fall. Barcelona’s proximity to the Pyrenees Mountains means that you can spend a weekend on the slopes whenever the desire hits. And the oasis of Costa Brava, famous for its crystal clear waters, hidden coves and renowned hiking trails, is just a little further up the Catalan coastline.
This foodie paradise is home to 22 Michelin-starred restaurants and the world-famous Boqueria market. However, the true beauty of Barcelona lies in its relaxed vibe and way of life. Patios are open all year long and there is always a cultural event or concert to go to. If you truly want to live like a local, then pull up a chair in any of Barcelona’s beautiful plazas and spend a few hours chatting with friends, sharing a vermut and watching the people pass by.
