The state of emergency in Spain is over and the coronavirus vaccination programme is now fully underway

Innovative Learning Experience
At Esade we know there’s no single way of enriching management knowledge. We know that people are unique. We know that each subject area or focus has its own set of skills, attitudes and behaviours to foster. And we know that you are at the centre of this matrix.
That’s why we take a Student First approach to teaching.
Our learning system seamlessly blends theory with practice. It fosters the rich interchange of experience, expertise and ideas that diversity of background brings. Student First interweaves debate, case study discussion, simulations, gameplay, teamwork, role-play and tutorials.
It is an approach that also fully leverages the 40+ nationalities in class, our strong culture of entrepreneurship, cross-functionality and collaboration to foster a team player mentality. As well as the management, negotiation and leadership skills that underpin a truly global mindset.
The Full-Time MBA methodology gives you the personalized attention from faculty and career advisors to grow, develop and change. And to fully realise your potential.
Workgroups rotate each semester and are designed to maximise the diversity of gender, nationality, academic and professional backgrounds. The exchange of experience, ideas and expertise in each group will encourage you to experiment with new approaches and broaden your horizons as you tackle new challenges.
Developing Interpersonal Skills and Competencies
At Esade we have pioneered an innovative MBA learning system that accelerates the development of interpersonal skills and competencies.
With input from industry experts, we have modelled 16 competencies that you need to effectively manage yourself and others. And we deliver this skills development experientially so that you embed each competency as you progress through the curriculum.
