This review is for ESADE
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2019
I went to ESADE as an exchange student and spent 3-4 months in Sant Cugat and Barcelona. It was one of the best experiences of my life. The student body was diverse. Professors were great. The location was incredible. If you are lucky enough to go to ESADE then you should go.
However it is not for everyone. Most students leave Spain since the career opportunities there are not that great. Salaries are low compared to other major markets. However overall, its still a great choice of school if you do not plan to stay in Spain.
As an international student its tough to make it in Spain since the economy is not booming and they prefer domestic students over international students. Therefore you get a good education but you have to find opportunities in another country.
Professors are great but communication skills are not on the same par as other top B-Schools since most of the professors are not native speakers. However the Professors are great.

The Gmatclub tests are the best learning tools to get a high score. The concepts tested cover everything from the basics to the most advanced difficult concepts you will face on the test day. In fact I believe that if you attempt all 1500 questions, you will be more than ready for the actual test. The Quant section is above and beyond what you're expected to know on the GMAT. If you can master all the concepts there's nothing standing in your way. You will crush the actual GMAT quant section.
Make sure you get the most out of these tests by reviewing the questions you get wrong and doing timed tests. Don't worry about the score you receive because its not reflective of the actual GMAT score you will get. In fact you will get a much lower score on the gmatclub tests than the actual test. So don't worry about the score and just continue practising!
All the best
I started my GMAT prep, as many people do, with no clue on how to fix sentences or how to read passages properly. After only a few weeks of study I was able to improve my score by over a 100 points. Just to put things into perspective, I was scoring in 400s and 500s in the couple of months of my study. I went through other courses tutorials, although they were helpful in Quant the verbal sections were no match for the E-Gmat's verbal section. I wish I had started my study with E-Gmat since i wasted a lot of money on other courses and books that didn't teach me much. My only regret right now is that I wish I had used E-Gmat quant as well because their course is just excellent. I have read many of Payal's posts on verbal and quant topics and the posts are amazing, filled with tidbits of knowledge.
I highly recommend this course to students who are looking to improve their verbal and quant skills. Especially if you are a non-native speaker then don't waste any time looking at other courses. I improved from V20 (my initial mock) to V38 in a quick few months of study. After only about 4-6 weeks of study, I never scored below V35 in any of my mocks.
SC was my weakest section, I had absolutely no clue on how to begin correcting a sentence. I went though the first module which taught me what a clause is, what a phrase is and what role conjunctions play in a sentence. What is a run-on sentence and how to spot structural issues in 5 seconds. Then from there, i was able to learn step by step how to spot SV errors, Parallelism errors, Modifier errors, comparison errors and few remaining minor SC topics.
I am now getting 85%-90% of SC questions correct and am very confident in my ability. So I want to thank e-Gmat for their amazing course. Thank you Rajat, Payal and other members of E-GMAT for everything.
Toronto test center had friendly and professional staff. Had no issues at all. Building was easy to find. Lockers were available for us to store our stuff.
I forgot my coffee mug and they saved it for me. I picked it up several days later and they even washed it for me.
Very nice test center. I would recommend going here. the computers were a bit outdated and I could see other testtakers in the room. But noise cancelling headphones were provided. I was also not given proper markers but i did not panic. it just took me longer to write but still managed to finish on time. So no complaints.
would retake the test here.
Signed up for Magoosh at $99 for the 6 months. It was too good to pass up. The tutorials and videos were very helpful and organized. Their weekly videos and youtube channel also has a ton of helpful and great material. Their mock questions were very well made and explained.
Some of the cons were the person in the math videos had a monotonous voice. However this didn't have too much of an impact on learning. The videos were short and not very indepth. I am the type of person who likes to dig deep. Hence the videos could've been longer.
Overall though its great for the price and the website has a ton of valuable material to improve GMAT score. I used it early on it my studies so it helped me alot.
