Hands-On Learning

Hands-on Learning
KNOW WHAT YOU DO AND DO WHAT YOU KNOW

ESADE's 'hands-on' learning methodology is based on your active participation.

It will help you to develop the key skills and competencies you need to pursue a top-level international career: Cooperation, international focus, cross-cultural communication skills, leadership, the ability to negotiate successfully and more.

The solid academic grounding in management you will receive will be put into practice thanks to a variety of interactive methods, including the analysis and discussion of real-life practical case studies.

The primary objective of the ESADE MSc in Management programmes is to give you the tools, skills and knowledge you need to tackle imminent career challenges.

You'll work in multicultural teams alongside highly motivated peers who will bring out the best in you while you face challenges together. Along the way, you will be able to draw on the vast experience and in-depth of knowledge of your professors who are themselves respected and successful professionals in their fields of expertise.
