History of TBS Barcelona
Toulouse Business School and the French Chamber of Commerce in Barcelona founded the Escuela Superior Europea de Comercio (ESEC), or ESEC, in 1995. The goal was to open an elite business school similar to the “Grande Ecoles” in France – truly international, allowing its students to feel at ease with the linguistic, cultural, and business spheres on both sides of the Pyrenees. In 2004, Toulouse Business School assumed complete control of ESEC becoming Toulouse Business School Barcelona Campus. In 2008, due to continuing growth, the campus moved to new facilities in the heart of Barcelona. In 2013, it officially became known as Toulouse Business School and its Barcelona Campus (ESEC) became TBS Barcelona.
