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 MSc in International Management 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 countries. This year, our MSc programmes include participants from 58 different countries this year, 30 in the MSc in International Management 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:

As part of your Master's Project, you'll have the chance to undertake an internship in a company overseas, where you'll put the theory you've learnt into practice.
You will learn Spanish, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Students who already have an advanced level can continue with Spanish or choose to take German or French. Spanish classes for absolute beginners are held throughout the programme, 2 days a week (a total of 5 hours per week in terms 1 and 2, and 6 hours per week in term 3) until achieving the required level. Those with an advanced level of Spanish may choose a substitute the elective course.
ESADE is the only Spanish business school that offers the chance to earn an extra degree in addition to the MSc: the Master in International Management, accredited by CEMS, a prestigious alliance of academic and corporate institutions.
Students in the CEMS Master in International Management (MIM) programme can spend a semester at one of the other associated universities.
