Making the Move to Barcelona as a Better Half

As couples and families, making the shared decision to move to another country and pursue further education triggers a mixture of feelings. From elation about the new adventure to anxiety about the unknown, it can be an emotional rollercoaster!

Gastrofest 2015

Gastrofest is the biggest cultural event of ESADE. It is a special night where students get together to represent their countries with food tasting stands and cultural presentations on stage. The 2015 edition was celebrated on December 5th at Club Astoria, Barcelona and it was a complete success with 340 people attending. It is the largest number of attendees ever recorded for Gastrofest, tJickets SOLD-OUT.   With 19 food stands and 5 cultural presentations, it’s was the greatest opportunity to celebrate diversity, try new food and dance to different rhythms. As an open event, students were able to invite friends and family to join the celebration.

The event started with an act displaying the 50 different nationalities of the students among ESADE Full time MBA in a parade of flags moving to the rhythm of the song “We are one” and a moving map video representing the geographical coverage of our diversity. Amazing way to start the night feeling the unity. Watch the full video below:
