Geneva Business School
By Vanya Maplestone
After a lengthy lockdown in Spain, Barcelona is finally beginning to open up, and that means so is the Geneva Business School’s beautiful new campus in Plaça Catalunya. When the world went into quarantine due to COVID-19, the school's students and staff successfully moved online, and many returned to their home countries.
With the return to the “new normal,” the university is now pleased to offer private tours of its new campus. In early 2020, Geneva Business School welcomed its students, staff and faculty to a new building just off the iconic Plaça Catalunya, within walking distance of the glamorous Passeig de Gràcia and arguably Barcelona’s most famous street, Las Ramblas.
Barcelona is synonymous with sun, sea, and sports, but it is also a top destination for tech startups, multinationals, and innovation. The city is perfect for young entrepreneurs with non-stop events and an immense pool of talent to exchange ideas with.
The school’s Barcelona campus was designed with the feel of a co-working space in mind and features quiet study zones, collaboration areas and state-of-the-art technology to facilitate a rich learning experience. All of the university’s classrooms are fitted with live stream cameras to run hybrid classes as students slowly return to this wonderful city to start or continue their studies.
The modern Auditorium, in the center of the building, is the ideal location for their Industry Insights sessions, where guest speakers discuss the latest trends, give advice, and take questions. These sessions cover a vast range of topics, from how to make it as an entrepreneur to top tips for personal growth.
From the roof terrace, you can catch the majestic view of Tibidabo, the intricate rooftops of the Gothic quarter, and glimpses of the streetlife that give Barcelona its unique personality. Students can enjoy a game of ping-pong, eat lunch in the sun, or just have a quiet rest in a bean bag between classes.
