Home Giving Our priorities Scholarship Programme

A commitment to talent, diversity and equality of opportunity

ESADE's Scholarship Programme is a strategic commitment and our flagship tool through which talented students without sufficient funds to study in our classrooms are offered opportunities for the future.

The ESADE Challenge for Talent campaign was first developed with the aim of increasing funds for scholarships through the contributions of companies, foundations, alumni, students, faculty and staff at ESADE.

Future Scholarship

The Future Scholarship donation combines the determination to leave an indelible mark on a person's life with the opportunity to directly appreciate the impact of your contribution on the scholarship student. This is achieved through mentoring initiatives, whereby a personal relationship is established that goes beyond the academic sphere.


This was the first formula for collaboration with the Scholarship Programme offered to alumni and friends of ESADE. 1.000x1.000 donors make a contribution of €1,000, €2,000 or €5,000 over the course of four years to ensure the continuity of the scholarships awarded. 

General Campaign

This includes all donations under €1,000 and enjoys the support of over 500 alumni, who make contributions individually or as part of a specific group, for example, their class, a sector-based or regional club, or a chapter.

Corporate Scholarships

Companies and organisations can support the most talented youngsters by creating their own "named scholarships". They can choose a particular programme (BBA, GED, Double Degree, MBA…) and the student profile they want their donations to go to. 

Success stories

  • 1.000x1.000, committed to ESADE

    Having been a scholarship student, Alba Rubio knows better than anyone just how important alumni's donations to the Scholarship Programme are. Now, she is a 1.000x1.000 donor, because she understands the value of supporting talented individuals and giving them opportunities for the future.
