The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) was established in 2004 as a postgraduate research and teaching institute.
The Institute is integrated in the Universitat Pompeu Fabra’s Campus of International Excellence programme. The Institute is a center of academic excellence specialized in the field of international studies, combining and complementing top-quality research with postgraduate education. All master’s degrees are fully accredited by the Spanish Ministry of Education.
IBEI Students receive a thorough core education covering the analytical skills and in-depth knowledge needed to be able to assess crucial matters in the international sphere today. IBEI’s courses have been designed to build the students’ knowledge, broaden their horizons and develop the transferable skills they will be able to use in any international career. The programs strive to maintain a personalized approach to ensure close contact among all members of the IBEI community.
Students’ profiles are varied in terms of both origin and prior studies, although the majority has a degree in the humanities or social sciences. Students come from more than 35 countries around the world and many of them have studied or worked abroad before coming to Barcelona. There is a very international atmosphere, in which the students’ different viewpoints favor cross-cultural debates and reflections both during and outside classes.
