EADA, Barcelona

James, you seem to know a lot about EADA. Would you recommend their MBA? Did you do the MBA at EADA yourself? Can you give some inside information???
Thanks a lot

Wow James, Opus dei movement?? I didn't exactly want to go to Europe to find myself in more christian environment than at home... 70 people in one class sounds difficult to handle as well. I know it is a very good school, but I will think twice befor applying, because of these disadvantages.
About the tuition I knew, what is the tuition in EADA again? And other good Spanish schools, where mayby tuition is not as extreme?

Hi Noya, me again.
Are you considering going to Spain for your MBA? Tuitionwise EADA is really competitive I must say. What's your impression: Are the other programs worth double tuition or more?

Hello Katalina, yes, i have placed my on-line application to EADA and now just waiting for some reference letters to send the full application, so i seriously consider this school. Hopefully they'll accept me. The mba has triple accreditations, hence i think quality-wise it should be good, The mba program is few years old. Well, guess that's the reason it has just been recently added to mba ranking (Minimum 3 year old program before addition to ranking.. also st. gallen in switzerland, i heard very good but it's less than 3 years, so no rank!). Eada has other msc programs which i heard are very good. That's from my friends who study in spain. ( i may apply for their finance program if they deny my mba application :) )

BUT, i have to admit the school is not well known outside Spain, let alone outside Europe (Random sampling, i asked 11 friends of mine who studied in Europe non spain, only one has heard of the school. But maybe that's because Spain is never the main destination for INdonesians to study). So that weigh quite a lot in my mind.

I am very interested in studying in Empresa and Esade because it's well-known. Guess it will be easier to find a job afterwards if you study in a school such as these. I don't think i would apply to IESE, although three alumni i know rate it very highly, simply because of the tuition. just imagining how to finance the tuition already giving me headache hehe.

I will meet representatives from IE in Singapore later this month, so i will let you know what the impression is.

If you ask me whether IE and ESADE is worth the double cost, i would say, if you live in latin American countries, they are probably not. People may know about all eada, ie, esade and iese. But in Asia, yes. it's worth it, especially Esade. Most friends of mine have heard of Esade.

If you want to be an entrepreneur, no, it doesn't hehe.. eada i heard is as strong in entrepreneurship content as Empresa. So, why bother paying more?

Happy hunting

Hi Noya,
Thanks for this long post, I really appreciate!
I think I will apply for all of them and try to find out more about the outcome and reputation of each program until I get their answer.
You are so right, it depends very much where you go afterwards. And it is true, in Latin America Spanish schools are more fancied than by Asian students, because of the language. I will ask around, and try to get a better picture.

May I ask you what you want to do afterwards once you have your MBA?
cheers, Kata

Hi Katalina,

I do now EADA, I have some friends which have studied there, but also whichahave done the other three.

I can tell you that the decision to o one school or the other is to FEEL IT! I am not joking, it depends if you like the school philosophy(more or less practical approach) and also the place (Barcelona or madrid) at the end you have to spend at least one year there so look for it. Price then is not an option, also bring to some decisions. Anyway you do the MBA once in your life so get asmany information as you can, go to spain and visit the school and write to them to ask if they are coming to your country, all the schools sand some representative to promote their programmes.

Bye

Hello guys,
I know it's a must for me to go to Spain to get a personal impression. It's funny that you say that now James, because I was just starting to prepare my trip! Christmas, or Eastern, I guess the latter, X-mas is a bit short from now.
Until now the main information source (besides school's websites, and posts in this board) is in fact what friends and people I know have been telling me - about programs, cultural setting, way and cost of living, Barcelona vs. Madrid etc.
It's time to make my own evaluation!

Katalina,

One of the best option is to see in the schools internet site when they are coming to your country or write an email to them in order to put them in contact with some national alumni, this is always better to get prepared before you go and visit, so you will already clear all the doubts to the school directly, but before you have had an analitical presentation by the alumi and not just a selling presentation made by the school.

Do not be afraid write to them, ESADE, IE and EADA will definitely like to answer your questions

Good luck

Thank you James, you are always so helpful - and this is exactly the kind of idea you don't have yourself when you start looking for an MBA!

Please Katalina, write then down your feedback on the contacts you have had with these schools, to allow also other students knowing the process and the details.

Kata, me again here. I met Empresa and Esade ppl over a fair in Singapore, and i am impressed by both.
just FYI, Empresa and IESE among top 50 MBA providers whose graduates can automatically work in the U.K. for a period 12 months after graduation. it's UK's Highly Skilled Migrant workers' Program.
EADA and ESADE are not. If you are interested in working in the U.K., you may want to consider this. Hope this helps

That's an interesting information Noya! Even though I did not consider to work in UK until now, but that could be a great possibility to enter European business world.
I've seen on the ESADE website that they do a lot of information sessions, did you already go to Spain to check ou the schools directly?

Interesting news Noya.

This is the list of the schools http://www.hsmp-uk.com/hsmp-mba-graduates-provision.asp but also read the details to get the other points for the working permit, is not just MBA.

yes james, thanks for clarifying. you're right, but 75 points (if you graduate from those 50 mba programs) almost ensure your points will exceed minimum required points :)

Kata, nope, i haven't been to spain (and may not be). guess i better save the money for tuition and rely on you guys who can afford going there :) cheers

Hello Noya, I have never been to Spain before either (but to Europe yes).
But I guess it's a lot easier for us to travel to Spain, moneywise, and as well because there will always be a friend or aquaintance where I can stay, and there must be less Indonesians in Spain than Venezuelans...

Hi Noya, Hi Katalina,

I guess you will like spain and you will see which party you will Join, the Madrid or the Barcelona one.

You will not have any doubt when visiting the two cities, you will immediately feel which one is yours and then probably also the school decision will be affected, but is very normal.

All the best

Hi, I have been reading the forums about EADA. Lots of interesting information. I am interested in the international MBA program and planning to attend the Open Day in February. For those of you who already went, can you tell some more details about the entrance exam? Was it like GMAT or easier/harder? Can you review for it in advance? What kind of interview did you have with the director? Also, what do you think of doing an MBA in EADA if you might be working later in the US? What kind of job network and career assistance does the school offer, especially for those of us who do not belong to the EU, working and visas are a big problem...
Thanks!
