ESADE Master in Management programmes are primarily targeted at those with undergraduate degrees in business administration or economics.
If your degree is in a different discipline, we still invite you to apply. The Admissions Committee will assess your candidacy and, if admitted, we will ask you to enrol in the Business Integration Path (BIP) course, which will give you a grounding in management basics. The BIP course normally starts 3 weeks before the beginning of the regular classes of the Masters programme, and includes an online module which normally starts around the beginning of July.
The Business Integration Path (BIP) is broken into:
> Four online courses that start on July 3 and must be completed before the start of class courses on our Sant Cugat Campus
> A three-week block of face-to-face learning in August (before the Welcome Week) on the Sant Cugat campus:
The ESADE Welcome Week is designed to help you hit the ground running. You'll get to know the ESADE management teams, find out how the Masters programme fits into the broader context of the business school, and get a full overview of the programme's academics and career services. You'll learn what is expected of you and we'll help you to make your time at ESADE a success, sharing some proven tips and guidelines. Group work is a key element of the Masters programme and you'll have the opportunity to get to know the other MSc participants straight away as you begin your journey together.
