IQS is a leading centre offering university education in two major areas: engineering, with degrees in chemistry, pharmacy, biotechnology and industrial technology; and business, with degrees in business and administration and management. IQS also awards joint degrees, Master degrees and doctorates.

Forward-looking vision

Nearly half of Spanish pharmaceutical companies are Catalan. Spain is the seventh pharmaceutical producer in
Europe and IQS is not indifferent to this promising perspective. In 2012, it opened its new centre, which is located in a modern, well-equippe building demonstrating the commitment to training and enterprise that have always characterised the institution.

Linked to the Society of Jesus and a founding member of Ramon Llull University, IQS began its voyage in the early 20th century and established itself in Sarrià in 1916.

Today, IQS continues to train excellent professionals who
go on to develop careers in the fields of engineering, chemistry and technology business management following the Christian values promoted by the Jesuit Order.

A district for knowledge and training

The Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district has a large number of
renowned schools and universities. Most of these are private and linked to religious orders and they include IQS, l’Escola Blanquerna, La Salle (these three are members of Ramon Llull University), Abat Oliba University and the International University of Catalonia. There are also some other high-level academic institutions including the University School of Design and Art, the Felicidad Duce School of Higher Education in Fashion Design and one of the two main sites of the Llotja School, making Sarrià-San Gervasi a vital district in terms of knowledge and training.
