Loan Options

If you are admitted to the ESADE Full-time MBA, you are welcome to apply at the same time to any of the loans agreements ESADE holds with two financial institutions: Banc Sabadell and Prodigy Finance. Later, you will have to choose only one option to finance your ESADE MBA programme.

The maximum loan amount that you 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.

Banc Sabadell Student Loan Programme

Our partner, 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 MBA loan agreement is available to all admitted candidates and only covers tuition fees; living expenses are the responsibility of the candidate.

Banc Sabadell will require the following loan supporting documents to evaluate your loan request. You can also start preparing the loan application form.
