I certainly know what you mean about ROI, especially when you have the spectre of Spain's economic crisis in the background. According to everything I've read, the school still has a great record in regards to how many students are finding jobs after school. Also, I'm a bit partial to the "business on campus" concept, as I think it's a really effective way for career / company development (my own company, Red Hat, took advantage of such an opportunity at North Carolina State University).


I agree with SKabanov. ESADE is taking steps in the right direction to build its brand identity and give its students the right climate to tap opportunities. It's already ranked 5th in Europe and it's a matter of time before its FT Rankings also improve. I'm okay with being patient and having faith in myself as well as in the program/school that I'm joining.

Facts and figures on the Careers webpage are useful but to paraphrase APPLE TVCs, they should be treated as "General Guidelines". Please don't get me wrong; I'm realistic too. I know that it will still be difficult (very, very difficult) for non-EU students to get a job in Spain or elsewhere in Europe in the coming years. But are WE, MBA applicants looking to build a bright career and hoping to be tomorrow's leaders really going to a B-school just to get a high-paying job? That's it?!

I've gone through the 2007-08 financial crisis myself, came this close to being laid-off, and have failed in starting up my first business venture. From these experiences I can tell life does not come with any guarantees. Even if, hypothetically, ESADE or any other B-School on this planet, were to GUARANTEE placements, I am not convinced that such an arrangement would work out in the long term. I think it's best to believe in ourselves. This makes it a lot easier for everyone else to believe in us!

Sure, there are also those who take on serious amounts of debt or put their family life/conjugal life on hold to do an MBA and therefore ROI matters!! It really does! All the more reason to make sure we go to a school where we really, really want to go and do so only when are 100% sure THIS is the right time to go to a b-school.

These are my thoughts! I'm okay with hearing from folks out there who have a different take on this subject.

They mentioned to me that the scholarship apps are done separately - either that, or I didn't qualify for a direct scholarship either.

Anyone else planning to matriculate?


In my case, the "Direct Scholarship" award was announced approximately two weeks after I was admitted to ESADE. So, I guess not ALL scholarships are announced in the admit e-mail.
@ SKabanov: I will be matriculating next year. Have you completed the reservation process?

Yes, I've completed the reservation process, and I've gotten a group created for the class on Facebook here.

Hola amigos!!

I am admitted to ESADE's class of 2015!!!

I had submitted my app in October first week, received interview call during mid-october, was interviewed on 8th November by Mary Granger (ESADE's Asia-Pacific admissions director) in Taipei.
I received the interview results during mid-november; I was put on a waitlist (The admissions committee said they will let me know the final decision once all the interviews in India were conducted).

I received the acceptance letter on 10th December. I have decided to attend ESADE as it was my first choice. I have already paid my reservation fees.

My future classmates, PM me, lets connect! :)

Hi everyone,

I was admitted to ESADE last week and I'm planning to enroll, but...apart from transcripts the schools requires certificate issued by my university telling that I'm entitled to master/postgraduate studies.
However, my university denied to issue such a document.
Has anyone faced the same situation? What did you do?
Can't believe my plans may change because of this paper...

Hey,

Just received my GMAT score of 510. I know is miserable. However, is it worth applying to ESADE for the MSc in Entrepreneurship course for 2013. Will they consider the application.

Thanks
