Re: ESADE Business School [#permalink] New post 02 Jun 2010, 08:12
So I'm in a little bit of a bind, wondering if you guys have any ideas. Just got my app in for the 5/30 Round at ESADE (I didn't think I'd be able to finance it earlier this year but a bonus came in), but it looks like decisions won't be awarded until July 15.

Does anyone know how firm that date is? Problem is I just got accepted into Oxford, and while I'm excited about this, ESADE is far and away my #1 choice. Yet Oxford's deposit deadline is June 28, and I doubt I can ask them to extend it.

I've emailed my admissions coordinator asking about the likelihood for a decision earlier than July (admittedly, I don't even know if I'll get an interview :)), but was wondering what you all think about the situation.

Thanks!

ESADE is very good at getting back to you quickly. They get back to you in about two weeks regarding an interview, then another two weeks for a decision...so it looks like you may just be able to make it by June 28th.

Hope you make it to Barcelona!

hi Chris, I submitted my application on MAY 22, had an interview one week later and the positive final decision yesterday, so you have time! In addition to that, if you tell them about your deadline, they will go even faster in their decision. Can I ask you which is your profile ? All the best !

Thanks! I'm coming from a small NYC asset manager looking to get into renewables and I too am looking for the international exposure.

Europe is moving along in the renewable space faster than we are in the US so I am solely applying to European schools.

Congrats on your admit. Hopefully I can share the same good news in the near future.

Wow, my adcom is fantastic. She got back to me today and said I passed the first round and will be interviewing, and she'll see if they can also get the decision made by June 28 as well. Love it!

Profile: 33, M, from the US, 710 GMAT, in marketing now but looking to take it global. Fingers crossed that the Global Marketing scholarship will still be up for grabs by the end of the month. :)

Hey, Meghash. You could email them to confirm, but they said 5/30 was the final deadline for all non-EU applications. Most other schools are wrapped up now too, though there's a few like IE and Cranfield that have rolling decisions, and even if they can't place you in their fall class they'll just defer you to their Spring '11 class. Probably your best shot?

ESADE only has fall Intake.. Dec/Jan intake are in RSM Erasmus and IE i think.

If you are interested in going to ESADE then you will have to apply in September-october 2010 for Aug 2011 program!...

good luck!

I was reading the ESADE test question posted elsewhere, which had a long introductory blurb extolling the school's 'virtues'. This is what I think.

Before tackling the question, I would dispel some of the untruths contained in the preamble. These are:

(1) Promoting a juster society. ESADE makes the right noises and some of the students go off into the bush to build huts in South America and that kind of stuff but the school has no real interest in doing the things that would make a real difference: curbing multinationals, ending the winner-takes-all ethos, stopping the corporate take-over of goveernment and so on. ESADE is always blowing its CSR trumpet but it is all so much hot air. The school was founded during the Franco dictatorship and much of its retrograde social ethos and make-up lingers on.
(2) ESADE's' interest' in the environment and green tech is a bad joke. Spain is one of the most least environmentally aware countries in Europe and ESADE exemplifies this attitude in spades.
(3) When it says 'international' it means a large number of students are from South America and so are also Spanish-speaking. The institution's mind set is irremediably 'Spanish' and this is a handicap. If you want to learn Spanish, do something else. Besides, Barcelona is in Catalonia and that means you will have Catalan to contend with too. If you want to learn business, choose a real English-speaking institution because ESADE is not it.
(4) The School is underfunded and it shows in a thousand ways: 'me-too research', swathes of part-time lecturers, teaching resources far behind the cutting edge and so on.

ESADE might suit you if you have to choose a third-tier business school but you could also do a lot better.

Hi Rajah,

You might want to change your negative opinions about ESADE, I am going to be a 2nd year MBA student at ESADE soon and so far my experience has been awesome. I am currently doing my internship at Naturix, one of the 10 social businesses chosen by Momentum Project (an initiative of ESADE & BBVA). I am dealing with environmental, social issues... There are also tons of seminars, activities going on with the same topics... In terms of internationality, there are 46 nationalities last year, and 45 the one before that, i don't how many there are this year. You can take a look at our "ESADE lipdub" and count up to 46, I am pretty sure that the majority doesn't come neither from Spain nor South America :) (just google it).
BTW, I was also contacted by Mckinsey today, so wish me luck :)

Good luck,

D.
