Throughout the program, MBA students interact in a diverse and multicultural context with other students from more than 10 different countries, as they participate in common activities, both in Spanish and English. ESIC also organizes talks and conferences to encourage the development of professional ties that help students enhance their careers. They will also have access to the ESIC’s Alumni network, which is a great meeting point among students, professionals, and academics around the world.


ESIC encourages learning English as a key skill to successfully develop oneself in an increasingly globalized environment. For this, we offer a free course, as part of the program, so that all those students that have a B2 level acquire a C1 level by the end of the MBA program.


This program is based on specialized learning, focused on the student and guided by professionals and tutors that will help you to understand, practice, reflect, and apply both specific knowledge and capabilities. The idea is to create an action-feedback-analysis-action cycle that supports learning and the student’s development in the program. In this context, the learning strategy will be based on these three principles:
