Barcelona has strengthened its position as one of the world's leading cities in international talent attraction. According to Esade’s MBA City Monitor 2017, which is based on the number of international MBA full time students, the Catalan capital has climbed up two positions in the last two years. Now ranked sixth, together with Toronto, and only behind Boston, New York, London, Paris and Chicago.
