The University


ESADE is an international academic institution with over fifty years of history. The main asset of this business school are people: faculty members and professionals who nurture reflection, dialogue, projects and initiatives to ensure excellent education, pioneering research and a valuable contribution to social debate and transformation.

ESADE's key mission is to train individuals to become highly-competent professionals fully aware of their social responsibility. We promote education and research through our Law School and Business School with a firm commitment to intellectual rigour, critical analysis and academic excellence.

ESADE's global prestige stems from its quality education, its international focus and its holistic approach towards professional and personal skills development.

The Business School


ESADE Business School has long been one of the world’s top ranked business schools, owing to its more than fifty years heritage in management development and experience in forming global business leaders. We offer a wide variety of MBA, MSc and Executive Education programmes at our Barcelona and Madrid campuses in Spain.

ESADE Business School’s distinctive methodology balances theory and practice rather than solely focusing on the case method. Simulating real working conditions, cross-functional and multicultural teamwork is an integral pillar of our cooperative methodology structured around the geographic, functional and academic diversity of our student population. With more than 95% international students enrolled on our Full Time MBA programme, there is ample room for fostering a more global business perspective.
