Congratulations to the graduates of the Executive MBA!

Day, 19 January, 2018. ESADE Campus in Barcelona. The time has come.

The day everyone was waiting for has arrived after 16 months of effort and dedication: including visits, experiences, projects and classes. For the participants of the Executive MBA, the graduation ceremony means the completion of a professional and personal transformation that started with a group of strangers and ends with classmates, friends, colleagues, and even partners.

ESADE Executive MBA Graduation - Barcelona, January 2018

Graduation is always an emotional moment – with family and friends accompanying the EMBA participants at the diploma collection ceremony. Carlos Royo, programme director, and ESADE Executive Education director, Jordi Brunat, addressed the attendees to remind them that the end of the programme is just the beginning of a new stage.

Alba Cura, Pau Imaz, Begoña Martínez and Silvia Segalés spoke as student representative to recall the most amusing moments and shared memories, but above all, to reinforce the group feeling that was forged during these 16 months.

Congratulations to all the graduates of the Executive MBA in Barcelona (twentieth year)!

The EMBA premieres on Facebook Live

The EMBA team has added a new communications channel. On 19 July we premiered on Facebook Live with a video featuring Judith Puigbó, associate director of admissions for the Executive MBA. She was accompanied by two participants from the current EMBA monthly format, Naïma Maëlle Zodros and Alexey Kultyshkin.

The video included a relaxed discussion on personal experiences and various aspects of the EMBA. Naïma, from the biotech industry, decided on the EMBA because she wanted a 360º vision of business; while Alexey wanted to complement his previous education with a more comprehensive programme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both positively value the diversity of EMBA participants – something that enables mutual enrichment and productive teamwork. Alexey, who had not previously considered being an entrepreneur, felt that starting a business was now an option after his experience at ESADE.

Questions discussed during the interview include the various methodologies used in the programme, its international weeks, time management, and student business plan ideas (one of the most important sections of the EMBA in which participants choose whether to develop their own entrepreneurial idea, or develop a project within the company where they work – called intrapreneurship).

The care and follow-up provided by the ESADE team is another factor that participants value. ESADE enables participants to visit the school, attend classes, and talk with alumni to acquire more information and viewpoints before making a final decision.

During the video, there was also an opportunity to talk about the best personal moments experienced during the EMBA. At the end of the discussion, viewers could participate and ask questions live or later at: emba@esade.edu.

The video already has more than 2000 viewings and can be seen here. It is the first of a series that will be made periodically to bring live EMBA news, experiences, opinions, and advice from participants. See you next time!

The challenge of investing in India

“On our EMBA study tour, we visited the Indian school of business. I must say that I was very pleased with the quality of the classes. They were all tailored to give us a general view of India’s current situation regarding foreign investment. After four days of intensive learning, I found myself wondering if I would I invest and how I should do it?

India is a pool of untapped opportunities, however doing business in India is not easy. When selling to the emerging middle class, prices should be affordable – hence low – while still managing high margins. It makes it tough to obtain an acceptable return on investment. I found interesting how the teacher mentioned that for a product to succeed in the Indian market it would have to succeed first at the bottom of the pyramid. Then it should be adapted to higher segments therefore making innovation a key reason for success in India.”
