Those of us taking the 2015 fortnightly EMBA programme attended Family Day this weekend. During the event, a member of each student’s family could attend a lecture similar to those given during the programme. This let family members experience ESADE teaching methods (case studies, ‘learning by doing’ and so on) for themselves.
During Family Day, we EMBA students were in our usual classroom, following the programme while family members were sampling new knowledge and learning (which on this occasion was Marketing-based and involved classwork and discussion of real cases).
We swapped impressions of this initiative and got the chance to meet other participants’ family during the break and the cocktails served after the classes. Here, one should note that family support is vital for students taking this intensive programme. We are immensely grateful to families for their support and everlasting patience.
