The ESADE MBA

The ESADE Business School, located in Barcelona, offers MBA programs of 12, 15, or 18 months. The program is relatively small and its primary stronghold is in marketing.

The student population is characterized by a relatively older average age (28 for the 18-month program and 32 for the year-long program) with a high percentage of international students.

The program includes two tracks of study in English and one bilingual track (English and Spanish). Only those students who choose the 15- or 18- month programs can benefit from an exchange program that enriches participants’ international experience, as well as a specialization that prepares participants for career changes.

Regarding the admissions process, there are seven deadlines, and candidates who apply to the bilingual track can take the ESADE admissions exam instead of the GMAT.

The school has agreements with a number of banks in Spain that allow foreign students to receive loans that fund 100% of tuition costs with no need for a co-signer.
