Student Loan Programme

ESADE Full-Time MBA admitted candidates are welcome to apply simultaneously to any of the loans agreements ESADE holds with two financial institutions: Banc Sabadell and Prodigy Finance. Subsequently, students and candidates will have to choose only one option to finance the ESADE MBA programme.
The maximum loan amount that candidates can finance through these agreements is capped at 100% of programme tuition fees (€64,900). Both Prodigy Finance and Banc Sabadell make payments directly to the School.


Our partner bank, Banc Sabadell covers up to 100% of the tuition fees, minus the reservation fee. Bank guarantees will be required depending on the amount of the student loan requested. The ESADE MSc Loan Agreement is available to all candidates admitted to one of the MSc programmes at ESADE and only covers tuition fees; living expenses are the responsibility of the candidate.
