ESADE Business School offers and awards a considerable number of scholarships to outstanding Full-Time MBA candidates during their admissions process.

Most of these Scholarships are possible by the allocation of the Business School funds, as well as the generosity of our donors and alumni contribution. The aim is to recognize and encourage talented candidates applying to ESADE Business School.

There are two criteria in which the scholarship can be evaluated. The Talent criteria evaluates the academic excellence, personal achievements, proven professional acumen and a determination to influence the future of business.

The Need based criteria, not only evaluates the merit profile, but also the financial need of the candidate.

Please note that each scholarship includes a description that indicates the criteria in which the scholarship can be evaluated. In the event that the Scholarship can be evaluated in both criteria, you may choose one.

Career Acceleration Programmes

ESADE has launched Career Acceleration Programmes (CAPs) in Consulting, Investment and Private Banking as well as in Technological Disruption to provide MBA students with the knowledge, market insights and tools necessary to embark on a successful career in the consulting and banking industries.

Not knowing Spanish will be a disadvantage in any way?
ESADE Barcelona
6/10 08:17PM
No not at all!! The MBA is fully in English!!! But we offer Spanish classes and I would encourage to take advantage of it because its included in the doors to all LAtin America!!!
Hi Alex during Vocid times we had to offer an alternative test because GMAT and GRE took some time to go to the new normal but next September we only accepti GMAT and GRE again......
Vocid = Covid (I have dislexia hahahaha)

ESADE Barcelona

Hi Itay good question..... in general with 10 years we would recommend the part time Exective MBA program (3 days once per month during 20 months) but I would need to really understand your motivations..... I would suggest you to contact me by email so we can arrange a call..... [email protected]

6/10 08:33PM
Do you consider military service as work experience?
ESADE Barcelona
6/10 08:33PM
Hi Raz for the MBA Full Time in general we require minimum 3 years of full time working experience (usually not internship but I know that some internships are 80% full time jobs... plus you do the army..... so well we would need to understand a bit better your profile... so again I would maybe suggest to arrange a call write me at [email protected]
Hi Noam in Israel its very demanding so sometimes depending on the position it could be considered yes!
Especially when the position in the military services where in strategic positions such as cybersecurity for example.... so again yes nothing is balck or white we have a very hollistic approach so lets discuss further for sure
write me at [email protected] and happy to discuss your profile

Hi I am new on this chat. but just read all the Q&A wow! one question I had. how much does the degree cost?
ESADE Barcelona
6/10 08:43PM
Unless something unexpceted happens again... it will be 100% oncampus!!!
Hi Peter fee of our MBA Full Time is 72,000€ (same tuition fee no matter if you choose the 12, 15 or 18 track so I would recommend the 18
We have schoalrships we say up to 50% but honesltly more realistic is to consider 20-25% which is the average always with a GMAT over 650 and the highest the best
12-15 or 18 month track (I forgot to write month hahahaha)
When I try to write fast I make a lot of mistakes sorry

Yes I know its a big investment in terms of Finance and Time but we are a private foundation we have no public funds and we try to bring amazing facilities professors and staff
But if you want to try the 50% schoalrship I am here to help!
Hi Peter yes there are also loans with a Spanish local bank and with Prodigy Finance!
But I would also encourage you to check with your local banks maybe interest rate is more convenient.... our loans usally have an annual intrerest rate of 7-10% for Non Europeans
