Imagine making a presentation to Bill Clinton in New York. Or finding yourself in the kitchen with world-famous chef and entrepreneur, Ferran Adrià.
At ESADE we are always looking for different ways to give you the chance to roll up your sleeves and experience business innovation first-hand. While the MBA curriculum encompasses real-world challenges as part of your day-to-day study, we also offer a range of hands-on challenges that give you exposure to the fast-paced and exhilarating world of global business.
C4BI - Creativity for Business Innovation
ESADE has joined forces with Ferran Adrià’s El Bulli Foundation, which fosters innovation through El Bulli Lab to help businesses increase their efficiency and creative longevity through innovation. The challenge to students is to apply creative process auditing – a ground-breaking method developed at El Bulli – in business environments. ESADE MBA and MSc teams pitch their proposals to a board of ESADE experts and Adrià himself on our Sant Cugat Campus.
The Hult Prize is the world’s largest student competition aimed at doing social good. The competition takes place over the course of one year and crowd-sources ideas from MBA and MSc students in response to challenges like food security, water access, energy, and education.
The Prize is a partnership between Hult International Business School and the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). Bill Clinton selects the challenge topic and announces the winner each September. The Hult family donates US$ 1 million in seed capital to help the winning team launch a social enterprise.
