Congrats on getting accepted!! I also applied to Esade and am hoping to attend in the Fall. I would recommend to anyone interested in Esade to try and attend one of their Open Weekends. For me, visiting the campus, meeting the admissions team and students and spending time in Barcelona really set Esade apart and made it my first choice. I also considered IE in Madrid and although IE has higher rankings, I think if I get accepted to both schools I will attend Esade because of its location and collaborative learning environment.

Good luck & hopefully we will meet in the Fall!!!

received acceptance later .. but I want to defer enrollment to next year for several reasons... I am ready to reserve the seat with initial deposit but is there a guarantee that defer request will be accepted?? In case there is no guarantee, I may loose all the money since initial deposit is not refundable...any help from anybody??

Hi all,

I had applied to the ESADE Full-Time MBA programme and I have received an acceptance for the programme beginning in September this year (2012-2013/2014). I'm now at a junction and I need your advice. I have to take a decision on it by mid-May(the deadline for sending docs is 15th May) and send across all the documents.

I know that ESADE is a highly ranked programme and I think the structure of the curriculum is brilliant. But I'm worried about placements. Coming back to India after an MBA from Spain wouldn't do me much good or would it?

I need your advice at this point. I'm from Mumbai,India and I have 2 years of work experience in IT consulting. I have done my bachelor's in computer science and technology. But now I want to gain experience in strategy, marketing and entrepreneurship. I'm elated to receive an admit but at the same time I'm concerned. It's a golden chance for me and I don't want to lose it.

Please help.

Congrats on the acceptance to ESADE for this fall. The students, the faculty, and location all make it a wonderful place to go an study at. I'm sure you'll make good use of the facilities and opportunities there. I know they are big on getting students to have experiences outside the classroom through internships, projects and work experience. They have close links with companies like L'Oreal and Google has recruited 22 ESADE grads over the last three years.
