Entrepreneurship Club Stockholm trek 2017

The Entrepreneurship Club has just returned from its second trek this year to Stockholm, after the very well received Tel Aviv trek. 20 ESADE MBA students jumped on the direct flight to Stockholm, the “Venice of the North”.

Stockholm has long been perceived as the capital of Scandinavia, as Sweden is, undoubtedly, the leader of the five Nordic countries. Sometimes considered a high-welfare socialist country, Sweden has recovered brilliantly from the 1990s social problems and built up a dazzling active business-driven society. In the 21st century, Stockholm proudly stands in the frontier of the European cities best for starting up a new business, lavishing with its rich resources in highly educated talents, strong financial investment, stream-lined government processes, and not to mention the extremely low corruption rate and well-governed legal system.

Marketing around the World!

Hello fellow Marketers! One big focus area of our club this year in addition to organising case competitions like Nespresso, is knowledge sharing and enhancing the classroom experience in the new world of Marketing.

Jam Sessions by the Music Club

written by Itsuma Tanaka

ESADE MBA Jam Sessions!

It was about a year ago, in September 2015, when enthusiastic musicians of the ESADE MBA Class of 2017 hosted their first jam session ever. The first ever ESADE Jam Session – a small start.

Back then, it allowed those few musicians to take the stage and have fun rocking a small crowd of just about 40 people. The success of the event led this group of ESADE musicians to start the Music Club as a Social Club within the MBASA. Read the rest of this entry »

ESADE study: Spain is among the top 5 countries that attract the most international talent to MBA programmes

Spain is #4 on the list of countries that attract the most international talent to MBA programmes, outranked only by the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada, making it the #1 European country, ahead of 5th-ranked France. Barcelona, meanwhile, is #8 on the list of cities that attract the most international MBA students and #1 in Europe per million inhabitants, ahead of Paris and London.

These are just a few highlights from the MBA City Monitor, a new report coordinated by Ivan Bofarull, Director of the Global Intelligence Office at ESADE. The report analyses the capacity of cities and countries to attract international students to MBA programmes ranked by the Financial Times and highlights opportunities that cities and countries ought to seize.

According to the MBA City Monitor, the list of the top 10 cities with the highest proportion of international MBA students also includes Singapore, San Francisco, Toronto, Chicago, New York and Boston.

The east coast of the United States and Canada remains the number-one destination for international talent in MBA programmes, although the San Francisco–Silicon Valley area has been the fastest growing region over the past three years. Finally, the report found that MBA graduates have increasingly come to see working at a start-up as a top career choice.

 

A strategic asset

“In Barcelona, we’ve seen that around 10% of MBA students from the city’s main business schools go on to become entrepreneurs, and 80% to 95% of them are international,” commented Ivan Bofarull, Director of the Global Intelligence Office at ESADE and coordinator of the study.

“In Europe and Barcelona, the general pool of next-generation start-ups isn’t large enough for us to evaluate the impact of high-quality international talent – especially MBA students,” commented Mr. Bofarull. “However, we suspect that the major trends are similar to those seen in the United States, where a large percentage of start-ups are founded by foreigners and, although most MBA graduates are not start-up founders, they do play an instrumental role in the success of the ecosystem as a whole.”

“The attraction of global MBA talent should be taken into account when assessing a city’s potential to create new entrepreneurial initiatives that can have an impact on the creation of high-quality jobs,” added Mr. Bofarull. “From an administrative point of view, we should try to make life easier for this new segment so that it can generate business opportunities.”

The report concludes that in countries like Spain and France – which have troubled labour markets and are struggling to be leaders in innovation – the MBA population should clearly be considered a strategic asset.
