I thought it would be a nice idea to have a blog where I can tell people about the progress we are making as we move towards the launch of the new Master's at UPF in International Trade, Finance and Development. It's February now, almost a year after Jaume, Fernando, Antonio and I started to toy with the idea of launching this. Another six months, and we'll be "going live"! The process from idea to approval and launch of the program was short but pretty intense. Two weeks ago, we presented the new program the BGSE open day in Barcelona. Fernando's presentation seems to have generated quite a bit of interest.
