Welcome to the website of the Faculty of Economics and Business Studies, Deusto Business School. Here you can find full information on our broad range of academic and research programmes and on the people who make up the various work teams at the Bilbao and San Sebastian campuses and at DBS in Madrid.
The main mission of our School is to educate responsible professionals, capable of promoting and leading sustainable business projects in a global environment, working towards a more prosperous, fairer and more inclusive society. We also aim to contribute to creating knowledge so that we can meet the main challenges faced by society and organisations from an interdisciplinary perspective and in collaboration with other actors.
In line with our mission, the School currently has nine types of undergraduate programmes related to the Bachelor’s in Business Administration, and a broad range of official master’s degrees, Deusto’s own postgraduate degrees, a doctoral programme and a full range of Executive Education programmes.
Likewise, we have a network of research teams that, in addition to generating advanced knowledge and transfer responses in their areas, allow us to enhance the quality and upgrading of the faculty involved in the variety of academic programmes we offer.
Since it was founded in 1916, Deusto Business School has maintained its commitment to providing an all-embracing, integral and practical education, closely engaged with our business community. In this regard, the values underpinning our School are professional excellence (rigour and technical competence, and deep human quality); integrity and ethical commitment; cooperation and solidarity; openness and diversity; and innovation and entrepreneurship. Furthermore, we have numerous professionals from various industry sectors in our classrooms who provide their expertise and case studies, and bring us closer to the business reality. We also offer a large number of companies and institutions where our students can do their internships throughout their studies.
We also have our Deusto Business Alumni Association that, among other activities, is in charge of the job search service, and facilitates permanent contact with our members. We are also fortunate to have, on the one hand, the invaluable support of the Vizcaína Aguirre Foundation that, with the support of the Basque business community, facilitated the birth of the School in 1916; and, on the other, that of the Bernaola Foundation that, since its creation in 1984, has contributed to improving the education of faculty and students through seminars, research projects and graduation and predoctoral grants.
As you can see, Deusto Business School is a School with more than 100 years of history that has been able to adapt to new times with new academic programmes, while maintaining its mission and values as distinctive features we are most proud of.
