Find a place to stay before leaving your country. Barcelona has many students and so is very difficult to get an apartment when you arrive there. Choose Habitagejove.

I think it is an excellent university to attend for someone who seeks a relatively (as compared to other Spanish universities) internationally oriented school.

Barcelona is an amazing place where anyone will be able to find a niche. It is is perfectly located on the Mediterranean Sea, and it's culture and history are quite impressive. The people can be very closed but the few you get to know will stick with you for a long time.

GPEFM Program which I am attending is challenging and it has a very high international cultural environment. Barcelona is a great city to live therefore I recommend everyone Univ. Pompeu Fabra and the city.

www.loquo.com is the best website to look at to find accomodation. Univ. Pompeu Fabra recommends ONIX and RESA as student residences and they are both great and you can choose one of them dependinig on your budget but you have to reserve your place beforehand, months ago.

Be careful when choosing your courses! Take some time to study for the final exams, I had two hard weeks at the end because of that.

BCN is the best place to do your exchange program, I had the time of my life there and it was freaking awesome, I would do it again and again! It is the most amazing city.

Personal recommendation
Academically better than either ESADE or Autonomo for Economics, lags ESADE for Business studies. Strength of Economics faculty depends largely on quality of visiting professors and some of the professors holding dual professorships at foreign universities - make sure that the professor that you want will be there while you are.

Final comments
PhD programme in Economics is an excellent option. Support and attention granted to graduate students much better than that experienced at most North European and UK institutions and without comparison in Spain. It has excellent research partnerships with top notch institutions (i.a., the LSE) and has managed to position itself as a leading force within economic research (micro, macro, growth, rational expectations theory), only surpassed by the LSE in terms of publications in Europe. However, it still lags in terms of academic quality outside the Economics department.
