Excellent University with some improvable points
LAURA B

Overall
Six years at Pompeu Fabra University are enough to deep into the universities' strengths and weaknesses. Despite being a young university is has been ranked by the Times Higher Education among the 100 best universities in Europe and the best University in Spain. Consequently, Pompeu Fabra stands out for its quality, especially in the social science disciplines such as economics or international business administration. 
The University has made wide efforts to promote internationalization and adapt to new educational methods. Thus, it not only accepts many international students coming from the best universities in the world, but it also promotes studying abroad through many exchanges. 
The functioning of the university is clear. There are some master classes mostly done by associate professors who are currently working in important firms or companies, and there are seminars of a minimum of two hours per subject. In those, reality cases or practical exercises are studied to get in contact with the practicality of different job prospects. 
There are three campuses located closely one each other in Barcelona, so it is easy to know people from other disciplines. 
However, Pompeu Fabra University has a severe disadvantage associated with the shortage of organizational capacity. It is almost impossible to balance the studying life with any working opportunity or necessity. Schedules vary each week, and there is no attendance flexibility. Moreover, there are many empty hours between lessons, so if you don't live close to the campus, you are forced to spent the whole day in it. On the other hand, campuses count on many services, and they are well-equipped.

Overall
As a marketing student who has attended Tecnocampus in Mataró, I can confidently say that it's a great place to study and grow as a professional.

The professors are knowledgeable, experienced, and always willing to help students. They provide valuable insights into the latest trends and developments in the marketing industry, and they encourage students to think critically and creatively.

The courses offered at Tecnocampus are well-designed and provide a comprehensive understanding of different aspects of marketing, including market research, consumer behavior, branding, and digital marketing. The curriculum is regularly updated to keep up with the ever-changing marketing landscape, ensuring that students receive the most relevant and up-to-date education.

The campus has a vibrant and diverse student community, with a range of extracurricular activities and events that cater to different interests. From sports clubs to cultural societies, there's always something going on, which creates a dynamic and engaging learning environment.

In terms of the campus itself, it's modern and well-equipped, with state-of-the-art facilities that support student learning and growth. The library is particularly impressive, with a vast collection of resources and a dedicated team of librarians who are always on hand to assist students with their research.

As for job prospects, Tecnocampus has a strong network of industry connections, which helps students secure internships and job opportunities after graduation. The university also provides career guidance and support, including workshops and events that help students develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the job market.

Overall
La UPF es una universidad de Barcelona con nombre internacional, que a lo largo de los años ha ido ampliando su oferta académica, pero que destaca de entre otras universidades de la ciudad catalana por su alto nivel docente en el ámbito de las Ciencias Sociales y Jurídicas. 
Respecto a las/os docentes, estos tienen un alto nivel de preparación, así como un intenso recorrido en su materia. Es todo un honor poder aprender de profesionales como ellas y ellos. Paralelamente, debe ser destacado el elevado nivel de exigencia de la universidad, el cual se traduce a lo largo de los años como éxito profesional/laboral. 

Referente a la vida universitaria y el ambiente del campus es especialmente relevante la homogeneidad entre culturas distintas, no solo en términos de internacionalidad sino a nivel nacional, ya que gran parte del alumnado proviene de pueblos o ciudades de alrededor de la Península. En consecuencia, el campus está lleno de puntos de vista distintos y un joven alumnado dispuesto a aprender y disfrutar tanto de los estudios universitarios como de la propia ciudad barcelonense.

UPF's international professional help

Economics, 2023
Overall
I am currently looking for a suitable internship for me, starting this next academic year. Since this July my exchange in the Netherlands (Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam, EUR) will come to an end, I am more inclined to also do an internship abroad; that's why I've also registered to iAgora, as well as made use of UPF's online tools.
The UPF offers a lot of useful information online, as well as professionals whose job is to guide students in their non-academic aspirations. This guidance includes videocalls with said professionals, where they provide very relevant information about the CV, job-offer portals, as well as how to make a good use of the social network linkedIn. Finally, there's also a UPF portal that links undergraduates/alumni to companies quite easily. Thus simplifying the search process for UPF students.

Pros
In my opinion, the videocall with the professional career-counselor; she really calmed me down and walked me through the process from student to worker in a very efficient and down-to-earth way.
Cons
When students contact the International Mobility office, they may take long to reply, and they're not too keen on answering calls.

REVIEWS BY INTERNS AT Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Buena experiencia
Mi función consistía en:
- Elaboración de campañas de marketing digital (GoogleAds, Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, LinkedIn Ads).
- Seguimiento de campañas, reporting y analíticas semanales y mensuales (Google Analytics, ActiveCampaign, etc).
Ambiente familiar
Empresa multinacional pero con un ambiente muy familiar y cercano entre compañeros de trabajo.

Desde el primer día te dan mucha autonomía, flexibilidad y mucho soporte en cualquier duda que se pueda presentar.

Hay bastante carga de trabajo, pero al poder gestionártelo a tu manera, resulta retador y muy dinámico.

Mucho trabajo en equipo e interacción no solo con tu equipo de trabajo sino con toda la oficina.

This internship allowed me to look into different firm sections, bringing me a solid fundamentals to start developing my career.
few things to do
I was put in every branch, however there were not many tasks for me to fulfill. It was monotonous and not really challenging.
ABOUT
Pompeu Fabra University is Catalonia's fourth publicly funded university. It is a young university, yet it already has its own little slice of history: it was founded in 1990 with 316 students taking two degree courses, and today it has 7,000 students, twelve degree courses and an expanding campus in the heart of the city, stretching between the Rambla and the district of Poblenou.
