The Barcelona GSE Master in Finance program has been featured on the site before, but has recently updated their website with new information that I wanted to bring to all of your attention. I also posted some videos that Barcelona put out that were pretty nice.
The program is truly international with students from all over the world. Located in Barcelona, Spain the master in finance program is a great way to enhance your education and gain exposure to continental Europe. The master in finance program is 9 months long and costs roughly $16,000 USD.
