The ESADE MBA forges next-generation leaders with the courage to ask difficult questions. Disruptive thinkers who don’t just adapt to change, but drive it. Who open a path that others can follow. Creactivists – creative activists – with the flexibility to find insights and the rigour to deliver results. A different kind of learning experience that will amplify your talents, expand your abilities and accelerate your career.

You will learn to be a creactivist by focusing on the 4Cs of critical skills and competencies: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaborative Leadership and Communication Skills.

  2. Create & Innovate: Learn to create and innovate using the strengths you explored in phase 1, discovering opportunities within disruption.
  3. Transform: Turn ideas into action. Transform yourself, lead your team and take your company beyond what was previously possible.

Besides, The ESADE MBA is designed for maximum flexibility. You can tailor the programme’s length, contents and focus so it is always a perfect fit for your goals.
