Roll up your sleeves and get involved!

The ESADE MSc programmes combine theoretical and case-based study with the practical and learning-by-doing approach. This is an opportunity to discover the business world and all its sectors from within, with company visits and presentations from top professionals in the classroom.

We don’t just offer preparation for your professional career —whatever it is you’ve chosen to do—, we bring it to you before you’ve even graduated, through our highly-focused clusters and strategic modules. It’s the only way to have tried and tested all the options before finding the winning solution.

Discover our hands-on style with these videos of our I2P programme and the fashion cluster, drawing on two of Barcelona’s strongest areas, fashion and innovation.
