The Business Department was created by agreement of the Governing Board on September 27, 1985, and integrates three areas of knowledge: Marketing and Market Research, Financial Economics and Accounting, and Business Organization.
It is attached to the Faculty of Economics and Business of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and is structured in two units: the Bellaterra Campus Unit and the Sabadell Campus Unit.
Its members are the academic staff, the research staff in training, and the administration and services staff attached to it, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students who carry out research work under the responsibility of a member of the academic staff of the Department. Academic and research staff who teach at least 50% of their teaching at this center are assigned to the Sabadell Unit. The rest of the academic and research staff are assigned to the Campus Unit.
