First Week in IESE [#permalink] New post 10 Sep 2005, 14:44

This is my first post after I landed in IESE (Barcelona). The first thing I learnt was to pronounce "Barcelona" correctly the way the espaniols do. Coming to the point, the whole issue starts from the visa. Obtaining a visa to spain is neither difficult nor easy. It takes time and follow-ups with the embassy.

My visa approval was easy though. Then comes the financial part...IESE provided tuition loan to all admitted students, without a co-signer. Thats a big relief if ones looks at the total cost of the MBA (just the tuition).

After coming to barcelona, we had couple of parties and get-togethers to understand our classmates etc...etc.... To date, I have met people from 21 countries. Ranging from nigeria to taiwan (including the USA). The first week was an intesive spanish courses. When I mean, intensive, you bet it is intensive. Infact there was a test on friday to go to the second module. It is indeed tough, but hey..we are prepared are'nt we?.

The next week will be again spanish courses and then would be the career week (eveybody is looking forward for that). As well as the pre-mba courses in accounting and business models. Something vey important for people without finance knowledge (like me - an engineer).

Thats for now, I shall keep you guys posted on any new and intereting topics that I come across in IESE.
