Final Business Project & Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Do you have a business idea?

Make it a reality with the Executive MBA Final Business Project

Have an idea? A business plan? A project for your company? The Executive MBA Final Business Project will allow you to develop your vision with expert guidance from our entrepreneurial experts.

The Final Business Project will facilitate participants in:

1. Integrating knowledge, tools, and skills acquired in previous courses, such as ENTREPRENEURSHIP.


2. Using tools to detect opportunities and validate the key assumptions.


3. Identifying business ideas and developing business models for new venture creation.


4. Pitching and selling your new business effectively, both orally and in writing.


5. Living the entrepreneurial process.

Methodology

The learning is based in our 'learn-by-doing' methodology and self-directed learning based on recommended readings.

We offer you diverse tools and methodologies you are welcome to use in order to further elaborate on your idea and work on your venture. These tools provided are, however, not exhaustive and you are welcome to complement the suggested 'toolbox' by any other tools, frameworks, concepts and methodologies you consider relevant.

We will assign you a personal coach to help you in this process. We have more than 30 mentors who are investors, entrepreneurs, and top executives.

You will have all the tools, resources and ESADE’s business creation platforms at your disposal:

"The Business Development Project and my entrepreneurial spirit, were the driving force behind my business idea, WeLive and the reason I was able to convert it into a real Smart Cities and social participation project. I provided the creativity, the concepts, the effort and overall excitement to be creating such an innovative solution to meet the needs of society, and the Executive MBA, with its entrepreneurial platforms and quality guidance, helped me establish the basis for €3M in European funding, to help me launch my 3-year impact project."
