Study at Barcelona’gov

Training offer

The network of research and advanced training centres Barcelona’gov offers tailor-made courses on good government and governance, public policies in general and urban policies in particular for professionals wishing to keep abreast of the latest strategies and tools to improve public management.

The courses are taught and managed by the three academic institutions in the network. At the end of every course, each institution issues a certificate of the course managed by each institution (IGOP, IBEI, UPF) jointly with Barcelona’gov.

The tailor-made training takes place in Barcelona over four days under a team of renowned professionals and academics from the universities that belong to the network.

Most courses are taught in Spanish, alternating lectures with guided visits to initiatives, projects, facilities and innovative practices within Barcelona.
