A little history
The Barcelona site of TBS Education, formerly ESEC, was founded in 1995 by the French Chamber of Commerce in Barcelona. Their aim was to create a business school in Barcelona that was of the same quality as the French Grandes Écoles. TBS Education, known at the time as ESC Toulouse, was their academic partner.
In 2004, TBS Education (ESC Toulouse) acquired ESEC, which then became their Barcelona campus. However, the Barcelona business school grew so rapidly that in 2008 it had to relocate to the current facilities in calle Trafalgar and calle Bailén, right in the heart of the city.
In 2013, ESC Toulouse officially changed its name to Toulouse Business School (TBS). The Barcelona campus, known up until then as ESEC, also changed its name to TBS Education in Barcelona.
Since that moment, the Barcelona campus has continued to grow: in 1997 it began with 45 students, but now has over 700; in the beginning, it started with 4 employees and around 40 professors, at present it employs over 30 professionals and some 160 professors; in 1997, the school’s students hailed from 3 different countries, whereas today there are over 60 nationalities among our student body.
