Hey everyone !

Just discovered this topic!

I'm applying for R5 and can't decide on whether Masters in International Management or Finance. Masters in Finance are ranked anywhere. It would be great if someone could provide some information on both programs, which is more popular and competitive?
Thanks in advance :)

Hello,
congratulations to all of you who have been accepted , hope I can get to know you next year,, and pacience to those of us who have to wait...
this blog has been very usefull for me and I want to thank you all for that.
I have my interview at ESADE 2 days from now and I am getting really anxious, since I have only 2 years experience Im not really sure what my real chances are.
I went to a school presentation here in Mexico, and I also got a great feel of the school, both from the admissions person to the ex alumni that attended ...

ESADE is also my #1 choice,, I aplied to INSEAD also and expect to hear from them next week.

Hey everyone,

I received my acceptance to ESADE MBA Full Time English Track yesterday. I met Cristina during her NA trip and the interview went extremely well. Congratulations to everyone else that has been accepted and best of luck to those that are still applying or waiting for a decision.

I'm looking forward to moving from Toronto to Barcelona this summer. This forum is great and I'd love to hear more about everyone's experiences as my experience so far has been great. :-D

Best,
Adnan


Hi Adnanhaque

i read that you are ready to move from toronto to barcelona for Esade so you are the right person to ask you how well known is Esade in Canada. I mean, I am planning to prepare my application to Esade ( my goal would be to apply in may for the last round,i understand i am late . What do you suggest? I'm already 32, 7 years work exp in small financial asset management companies in Italy, Gmat 720, i do not want to wait another year for my mba) and, as it could be possible for me in the future to move to Canada for personal reasons, i am looking for an Mba widely recognized there ; i do not think it is a good idea to choose a canadian mba as i am still not sure whether i will live in Canada.
Thanks


Hi feel?

Sorry for the delayed response. If you want to move to Canada upon graduation from an MBA, ESADE may not be the best school to attend. There's nothing wrong with ESADE as a school, actually I think its one of the best schools and I'll be starting in September!! But from personal experience, Canadian Financial Institutions aren't fully aware of the caliber of ESADE and the recruiting arms of these Canadian companies look primarily for local talent.

Someone I know graduated from ESADE in 2009, and even though the economy was not ideal, he struggled to find a job in Toronto. Many investment banks in Toronto took MBA grads from Wharton, Harverd first, then Rotman, Ivey, Queens, York, and I don't believe there were many hired from schools outside of North America. This may largely be because Canadian/American schools have a closer relationship with Canadian companies.

In summary, I believe you will have to do a lot of the leg work yourself. ESADE has deep relationships with European and International companies. Canadian Banks may be on the Career Services radar, but not a priority. To get an exceptional job in Canada, I would recommend an ivey league university in the US or Rotman, Ivey, Queens, York in Canada.

Best of luck!
Adnan

Hi guys, I am new here, :lol:

I applied for the ESADE Bilingual Track, I am having the phone interview tomorrow, I am quite nervous :( .

Anyone here applied for the same track as I did?

I did not apply for many schools because I wanted to focus on my application, kind a rolling basis. :D

Hi everyone,
I had my interview with ESADE and should know by the end of this week on my status.

I'm F/29/ from Canada. Any idea how long the student VISA process takes? I'm a little concerned since I'm going away for vacation June 19, back on July 13th, then classes start August 23rd. If I have all my documentation by, say, May 25th, will everything be ready by June 19th?

Hi CP

Usually it is assumed that the Visa process should last no more than 5 weeks...but again it depends from country to country..so maybe the process is faster in canada.

Good luck with everything and see you in Barcelona.

Well done ! Can I ask you when have you sent your application and when have you had the interview? And how many weeks they gave you to secure your place?


Would you suggest Esade onlyfor industry or do you think they are strong enough in accounting and finance altough it is more known for marketing?
thank you for your reply!

Well, I chose ESADE because they are strong in Marketing & International Business and I am also interested in their Bilingual MBA Course which I have not found a second one in FT, maybe somebody else can advise you better on Accounting & Finance. :)

because I am rushing for my trip tomorrow to Myanmar and I have told Mary Granger, the associate director, in my interview that I could not be able to have access to Internet in 10 days time. So i think she helped me to push for the result in just 3 days.

I actually applied sometimes in January but I think I was in the waiting list because my first GMAT score was bad.

Hi Bajar,

Yeah I am a VIetnamese,

I sent my Financial Plan to them few days ago, hope it can be approved so I can go there. I would be very disappointed if I cannot make my dream come true just because I do not have enough money for my study :(.

I came back from Chiang Mai few weeks ago and I loved it but now I do not dare to go to Bangkok, NO OFFENSE, but it is quite dangerous now right there. I cancled all my plans.

Tell me if you come to Singapore or go to Vietnam. :D

Hi maivet

the financial plan is only a small formality..apart from that i think getting the student loan is not tht difficult as most of the students take some loans...

I can understand why you hesitate to come to bangkok right now..but now the situation has improved a lot..weird how it gets lost in a matter of days..but thts thailand..

I have no plans of going to s'pore or vietnam as of now..saving money :P ... have you joined the facebook group " esade mba class of 2012" ?
