Happy new year from MBASA2020

A few words from MBASA 2020 President:

Our MBA Class set off with the wind for a well-deserved holiday. Some us used this time to explore the festive side of Barcelona. Others traveled to spend time with family and loved ones. Many adventured to see parts of the world new to them. And perhaps most of us set time to complete a pre-read, case analysis, job application, or review of accounting 😉

Whichever way you spent your break, MBASA hopes you were able to relax and rejuvenate, and are ready to take on Term 2!

The mark of a new year is, for some, a time to reflect on the recent past and set personal resolutions to reach an aspiration in the coming year. I’m not someone who waits until New Year’s for this type of stuff, yet the timing was perfect to pause and think back on Term 1, rightly labeled as Awareness. The ESADE MBA has exposed us to much opportunity and challenge. It certainly has advanced my knowledge of myself and the world around me. I am armed with a greater perspective, and I hope you are, too.

In 2019, I wish the best to each of you in the pursuit of your aspirations. Continue to build on your strengths, while nurturing complementary skills. Focus even more on activities that matter most to you. Step into arenas that make you uncomfortable. Surround yourself with those who push you harder. Take setbacks and disappointments as necessary points in the journey. Create the path that is right for you. And, please, don’t forget to enjoy the present, and make cherished memories.

On behalf of your MBASA Board Representatives, I wish you a Happy New Year, and extend a warm welcome back as we set off on Term 2 together.

Meet-up with Exchange Students from Asia

Last Wednesday, on January 24th, the Asia Business Club held its first official event of 2018. The idea was to bring together exchange students from Asia and ESADE students who intend to go on exchange at one of our partner schools across Asia.

Ultimately, about 30 students, including seven ESADE exchange students, were joining us at Ramen Dining YU for a delicious Japanese dinner and interesting talks about the exciting student life in Asia. Rumor has it, that even a few students from IESE couldn’t resist to join us that night.

We would like to express our gratitude to the various exchange students, who have joined us, be it from schools in Asia, Australia or the US.

We want to take this opportunity to make an important remark about our club:

As you might have heard, the Asia Business Club is now considered an “open club”, which means you can join the club, independent of how many other clubs you have already chosen. Please like us on Facebook “ESADE Asia Business Club” or contact one of the board members to get added to our Whatsapp group.

Stay tuned for more events and updates!

Your Asia Business Club!
