TBS Education-Barcelona and the NGO Càritas have been working hand in hand for years on social projects, especially with our Bachelor in Management students. In addition to this, as an academic institution, we are part of the agreement of the Univeristats amb cor program, which advocates the involvement of universities in the transmission of values such as justice, solidarity, hope and dignity, among others.

Every year, our school makes a selection of Bachelor or Master’s Final Projects that include a social perspective. These projects are awarded to Càritas, whose selected members gather in a committee to choose the best one. This, therefore, receives an Honorary Distinction; however, there has also been a Special Mention for a preselected project.

Yancy Vaillant, professor in the Entrepreneurship itinerary of the Bachelor in Management, and Basak Canboy, professor in the Sustainable Business itinerary of the Bachelor in Management, were also attending the event, as well as Delphine Anau, Head of Corporate relations & Career Services of our campus.

“It is the first time that we have combined the two itineraries, which has given a good result because it has contributed to finding a social and sustainability perspective to the projects. In addition, we are proud that the winning team has been selected to participate in the semi-finals of an international competition, representing TBS Educatoin”.
