ESIC Marketing


iNSPIRED
What is your opinion about ESIC for a master in Marketing, what is the ranking of the university. Is ESIC or EADA better, i ideally would like Esada or IE but tuition fees are not affordable without scholarship. How difficult is also get a scholarship. All opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Also, I have graduated with First class honours from british university and i have experience in Marketing too. I can apply in top universities but most of them do not offer the marketing degree I am looking for and to be honest I would be happy with some warmer weather. The problem is that I want to be studying marketing in high ranked institution but not in UK. What would be your advice regarding my current situation?? I would be more than thankful if i can get some replies asap. I really like the discussions that have seen till now and i do feel i can get a good opinion here. Thank you

Study in the best school you can get into. Take a look at the top ten on this list: http://www.best-masters.com/ranking-master-marketing-in-western-europe.html?PHPSESSID=9b5383d4b2e75a9cd271cfb71ef33773#.UPKt9KFq1yA

If you want to be warm, remember that the difference in salary between a great school and an average one can buy a lot of topical holidays. Maybe buy some gloves and try Rotterdam?

Hi Duncan,

I would love ESCP but the marketing in the Madrid campus is 50% english and 50% spanish so i am not really sure how exactly i can go around that fact... maybe learn spanish for half a year but they might require it when applying. Esade is definitely my first and most desirable choice but is not it very difficult to get accepted? Also, the fees are quite high and i will need then a scholarship, what financial aid is available apart from the uni scholarships? I have seen that ranking, are there some other one out there. Also, what about Eada?

I think you should consider study options outside Spain. If you really need to spend time in Spain, then you can go there before or after your masters. The economy is really weak there.

Yes, to get into ESADE you'll need strong academic results and the ability to pay the fees. Ask them about financial support if you have the academics. They want talented students.

EADA is fairly ranked on the list I linked in my post above.

Thanks for the reply.

What about the admission exams in Esade. I really do not have time to take the GMAT and i was wondering if you can take it after you have submitted your application or of what consist their admission test? A reply to this would be of an incredible help

Their website is very clear: http://www.esade.edu/management/eng/admissions/application-process

You can submit the online application form at any time, but it goes into the round when your full application package is fully submitted

Hi there,
So basically, you would not recommend EADA? I am kind of firm on my decision to study in Spain as I would like to live somewhere different than London. I would love ESADE but the tuition fees are too high and I do not have enough time to prepare for the GMAT. Taking those circumstances, what would you recommend. I really do want to study in a top school as i have proven in my academic record that my performance is above average but I also would like to be in a country I like .. very indecisive as to what to do.

Spain is not the only place which is not London. You have to loosen your criteria, because an affordable, top-tier, Spanish school with no GMAT requirements does not exist. So, look for a school that meets two or three of those four.

I don't understand why you don't have time to prepare for the GMAT. It's January.

Hi there,

I think the lifestyle in the country is also very important. I have been living in London for long enough and I would want some difference. I think i wont have time because most of the deadlines are in April plus as late you apply as less your chances of acceptance and scholarship, is that right? Also, is the fact that you study in ESADE for instance guarantee your high salary in big companies? Is EADA not known internationally?

Spain is still the only place which is not London and has a good lifestyle. If you restrict your choices to non-GMAT schools in Spain then you have an issue. Most graduates of Spanish schools stand a good chance of being unemployed (well, perhaps you have some connections which allow you to get hired on a non-competitive basis) unless they leave Spain.

If you start now, you could easily take the GMAT in February March.

Graduates of ESADE do, indeed, so very well. There are no guarantees but the outcomes are typically excellent. Most ESADE graduates now find outside Spain.

ESADE is, indeed, much better known internationally: Number 7 on the FT ranking http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2012 compared to 30th for EADA.

PS considering that the fees are more or less the same at ESADE and EADA, and certainly much less than the difference in salaries, I can't see any reason to not invest the time in the GMAT. EADA also requires the GMAT or its own test, which will test the same skills and they will look for similar levels of capacity,

Hi Duncan,
If we say I take the Gmat and i get accepted what are my chances of getting scholarship in ESADE... also what about ESCP, on the qualification you showed me earlier it is ranked first. However 50% is in spanish in Madrid but i might use my time to learn spanish and apply in June ( which they said is not too late) and then improve it further by the start of the course. what do you think? I am sorry for the numerous questions but i am very confused as to what to do and i really do need some help on the matter

ESCP is very good. Marketing is taught in English in Paris and London. If you don't speak Spanish then of course the Madrid campus won't work for you.

Very few students get *full* scholarships. You should expect to pay almost all of the cost yourself. Ask them for more details.

What other applications are you working on? Have you taken the GMAT already? Take a practise test and see how you do. Don't over-estimate how much time it takes to study. Some people do two hours a day for two weeks, others two hours a day for two months. What would happen if you were to work on the GMAT over your lunch break and for an hour after work?

Hi,
why don't you try a GMAT test? You're an english mother tongue, you graduated from a recognized University few years ago (And math required for GMAT is pretty basic, and shouldn't be a problem for people having a degree in economics)... I don't think you'll have to study much to score 700.

Hi there,

ESCP is very good and I have studied french quite fluent but once again France is my least fav country and I want to have a change from London, I am thinking of just start studying spanish and try, i learn languages quite easily. I havent taken GMAT, i tried and it seems to me quite complex especially the math bit.. I graduated in social science and I am not particularly good at math thats my main worry and also that the deadlines are approaching but you were right.. it is hard to go around it so i will have to take it.. it just might pospone my studies with a year which i really dont want to..I am not sure where else to apply I will probably apply in Imperial and Rottherdam but I would have doubts for them. I also can apply in other british universities as Oxford with sociology but i dont think that once i am working in marketing and i want a career in the field studying anything else would be good or would bring me bigger pleasure. Do u know what are the latest deadlines usually for applications when i still have got a good chance thank you.

From whatever angles i am thinking of it i just cant come up with decision... it would be a pitty with those gradues to study in second tier university having in mind how much effort i have put in my bachelor but at the same time there so many factors that make it difficult to apply in the one i want.. primarily time..

Why did you choose the name "inspired"? What are you inspired by, and inspired to do? It seems to me that you find it easier to outline what you don't want, but not what you do. There are 200 countries, ao why speak as if Spain, France and London are the only places on Earth.

A 650 GMAT is easy. Didn't you you maths at high school? There's nothing in the GMAT that most European graduates did not know at 14 or 16 years old. For myself, I studied theology: no maths at all. I studied over the Christmas holidays for two hours a day (at the most), and I got a 640 which was good enough to get me into RSM, ESADE, EM Lyon, EDHEC. You have two months, not two weeks. If you have the motivation, then it's easy.

What don't you like about France? I think the culture in Catalonia is more like the south of France than like Castile. How about Bocconi, EDHEC, or Skema on the Cote d'Azur if the weather is so important to you?

Outlining what I do not want to, gives me a better idea of what i want to do.. there are many different factors. I do want to study in top university but want to be also in a country that i would like and would be a change. I would be more than happy if you advise me what are the other places. Are the one you mentioned above better than EADA or ESCP for instance i will check them. Which Bocconi you are referencing to, I would love Bocconi but the marketing course is two years and I am afraid i cant cover the cost for this. Also another question, do you think that studying Marketing in business school is better than studying it in Kings College for instance, what would be the main difference? I am going to try and take it , isnt though GRE easier when it comes to math, why everybody is always talking about GMAT. Are less universities accepting GRE? I do have the motivation but i have to be writing my applications also and I am just afraid I have too many plates at once. I know french and to be honest I do not have particular reason not to like France, just a lifestyle very close to the one i have now when we talk about Paris and I still do want a bigger city than something as Catalonia. Weather is important, my health suffers enormously from the bad weather here and after 4 years if i take such a massive change it is better somewhere warm :) but once again.. I do not want to compromise on university because of that. Thank you for the replies it has been so helpful, I really do need some advices
