Social responsibility at ESADE

Social responsibility is one of the main dimensions of ESADE. We are committed to training people who are aware of their responsibilities as citizens and as professionals and capable of contributing significantly through their careers to meeting society’s needs.

SR-E Master Plan

The aim of the SR-E Master Plan is to gradually transform ESADE into a socially responsible and sustainable academic institution in every area of its activity.

In our 55 years of experience, ESADE has embraced certain signs of identity that have inspired the institution’s everyday work and enabled us to make a significant and innovative contribution to society.
