Toulouse Business School

Toulouse Business School is currently one of the few business schools (only 1% worldwide) to have obtained the industry’s three international accreditations: EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB. It has over 100 years of history, a network of over 35,000 alumni, 4,500 students who study in its classes every year, three campuses— Toulouse (France), Barcelona (Spain) and Casablanca (Morocco)— and a training centre in Paris.

As a result of this international presence, we are able to offer our students the possibility of studying in three countries and in various languages, we can select the best Spanish and international upper secondary school students, and we offer our partner universities the chance to host their students in the heart of a world-renowned city.

In Barcelona, we propose the university studies programme Bachelor in Management which enables students to earn an official French undergraduate degree certified by the "Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche". We also offer two masters: MSc Marketing Management and MSc Finance, both double degree with local institution UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).

    Campus Barcelona

TBS Barcelona, formerly ESEC, was created in 1995 by the ESC Toulouse Group and the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Barcelona with the pioneering goal of opening a highly international business school with the quality of the Grandes Écoles that would allow its students to easily move within the linguistic, cultural and business spheres.

Toulouse Business School took control of ESEC in 2004 and converted it into the Group’s Iberian campus: the Barcelona Campus.

Due to the school’s continued growth, in 2008 the Barcelona Campus opened new facilities in the heart of Barcelona.

In 2013, it officially became known as Toulouse Business School and its Barcelona Campus (ESEC) became TBS Barcelona.
