EADA, Barcelona


AP

Hi Kata,
I'm from the US, but am looking to live/work in Spain/Europe for a few years. I have been to Barcelona before and loved the city, that's why I'd like to go back if I can find a good + affordable mba program. Just keeping my options open at this point...

This is what I know:

The test in EADA is easier than GMAT, but the interview with the director is quite tough and unpredictable, lots of open question about situation you have to give a solution or point of view (two friends of mine reference).

Concerning working in the US I guess that ESADE is more connected with US companies because it has been working a lot on it in the last few years, EADA had less US students from US, but those which are back, and not only US citizens have found excelent jobs, I am sure in the school they can give you all the details.

Networking is well organised with several formal and informal events between students and former students in Barcelona. Abroad is periodically organised a meeting in the countries where a big group of former student is present. Career service offers information, promotes your CV.

Sincerely the last two points, network and career service are more or less the same in all the schools. If you are good and proactive you will find what you want.

Regards

Hi Katalina,

I have unfortunately no idea if in ESADE they make their own test, all the people I know have gone through the GMAT.

So when are you planning your visit to Barcelona?
Good luck and also happy new year.

Hello James,
I was planning to come in April, but right now nothing is clear anymore. I might have to postpone my MBA studies for another year, for personal reasons. Same as my journey to investigate which school to go to.
But I see the poisitive side of it too, I have more time to gather all the information and make the right choice.

Anyway Katalina, do not postpone that much your choice or you will not do that anymore. Think also in the option of making tye MBA in your own country, you have a good school to do it.

Hello James, you mean I could study at IESA too? That's true, but I'd be so disappointed to miss this opportunity of studying abroad. You are right, I have to be careful to stick to my plan. I think it will be such an important experience, not only for my CV but also on a personal level. No, I won't give up that plan!
Saludos, Kata

Hi Katalina,

Remember that now also MBA Part Time in another country are an option, a more risky one, but still an option.

I mean that if you do an MBA Part Time, you have time to work, or to find an internship if you have no working permit, but you can at lkeast pay the rent with the salary and at the end you have an MBA and you have a had a work experience.

I hope this could help

Thanks, James, the part time option is a good idea. Do you know how I can do to get a working permit while studying in Spain? Is that difficult for Venezuelans?

Hi Katalina,

Any MBA Student in Spain is entitled to do an internship in a company for the all period of the programme. ESADE and EADA have lots of experience in this, write to them.

Thanks James, is that the only thing I can get, a permit for an intern? No real working permit? I was afraid so. But of course, I will ask the schools directly.

Hi James, I'm from Indonesia and I was wondering, if those rules concerning working permit would be same for all non Europeans, will they apply to me as well?
Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Iuri,

These rules apply to worldwide citizens, everyone which enrolls in a Master programme has the right of doing an internship.

Oh really? I thought Spain had some special agreements with Latin American countries on working permit. Thanks for that info James!
What about working? I know that in Germany I'd be allowed as a Indonesian citizen to work and earn money, as long as I'm a student. Is that the same in Spain?

I guess that Germany and Spain have the same rules, being part of the Schengen scheme.
But remember that internships are not real works, are normally focused to people recently graduated from university, so it is really up to you the way the company will welcome you or not.

In the meantime spanish schools are growing and growing in the rankings, there are now 4 spanish schools in the Economist and Financial Times rankings, ESADE, IESE, IE and EADA.

Hi James, thanks for the reply. I was asking about real work, and what I said about Germany concerns work, not internship. You can get a working permit as a non EU student in Germany, for limited hours. Thats what I wanted to know about Spain as well.
So in all Schnenge countries apply the same rules concerning situation of foreigners? I thought there were national diferences still.

I´ve seen some comments here that are "not real life".

I suggest you to compare which companies recruit on each school and then you can have a taste of their recognition. In Spain, the only international businss schools are IESE, ESADE and IE. Don't get confussed about it.

From the school itself. Visit the school, ask career services which companies have come on campus, which is a good indicator. Also ask for alumni working for them.

Regarding companies: consulting firms (Mckinsey, BCG, Roland Berger, AT Kearney,..), Banks (Spanish and internationals), large pharma companies, others (Google, Microsoft, GE,... in general, these companies..., and I think that any of them visit Eada.
