ESADE MSBA


Hello. I've been admitted to the ESADE business analytics program. Being an indian applicant , I am not sure if I should go ahead and join due to visa sponosrship difficulty for non eu students in spain. Do non eu graduates of the program get jobs in spain/ europe? What is your review on Esade's MSBA program, its reputation, employability, ROI?

Most non EU students at Esade will speak Spanish or Catalan at a level good enough for the workplace. If you also arrive at Esade with a high level of written and spoken Catalan or Spanish, then you can get similar outcomes.

If you can't speak the business language of potential employers in a particular geography, then you're better off studying elsewhere. See:

How reliable are QS rankings? As this master is placed high on the list?
Also , since its a masters in business analytics-Is speaking spanish to a high level neccessary to land a job as I would probably not be interacting with clients much.

QS rankings are as good as any other, but just because a programme is higher ranked that doesn't mean that it overcomes the language barrier. 

You will know that Esade is in Catalonia: the language there is Catalan, and the second language is Spanish. Why would managers hire someone they would need to speak to in the third language, who could not produce or understand written documentation, rather than a classmate who was fluent in one or both local business languages, in addition to English? For example, what are the job openings for illiterate but intelligent people in your country?

Thanks Duncan,

Would getting a masters in Esade for business analytics provide me job opportunities in other European /middle East/ asian or American countries?

I don't think many people from other countries go to Barcelona to hire. Study where you want to work.
