International Experience

International Experience
Forging international connections has always been one of ESADE's greatest strengths. Its programmes benefit from the school's global reputation and network of contacts, and the Master's in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is no exception.
Your MSc journey will begin in Barcelona, a cosmopolitan business capital and gateway to Europe for a host of multinationals and Spanish companies.
ESADE's nearby Sant Cugat campus is itself a multicultural hub, and you'll study alongside classmates from over 100 nationalities. This year, MSc programmes include participants from 58 nationalities 25 in the MSc in Innovation & Entrepreneurship programme alone.

Not only does the world come to ESADE, ESADE also sends you to the world. Study tours are intensive weeks abroad to familiarise you with different cultural contexts. They consist of seminars at prestigious universities and visits to local companies. 2017 international study tours include:
