About ESADE Business School MBA

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.
