International MBA. International Master in Business Administration
The current professional must be prepared to face a business world increasingly globalized, so at ESIC, we have developed a leading international MBA
, taught entirely in English, which aims to provide an overview and International market.
The program includes an exclusive residential area in China to apply the knowledge acquired during the course.
The aim of the Master in Business Administration course is to prepare students to undertake responsibilities in general management
with ethical principles and effective and efficient business criteria.
The main concern of an MBA programme is to ensure that what students learn is what companies need to know.
The MBA answers the question, "What do companies need their executives to know in order to carry out top management tasks?".
This is the starting point for the preparation of effective business professionals.
The sequence of events can be compared to a production process:
the raw materials are the people who decide to enrol for the course, the production process is the MBA programme itself and the companies they will work for are the customers who must ''acquire'' the ''finished product'':A qualified professional ready to take on management responsibilities.Metodología
All the subjects in this Programme include the necessary theoretical and practical contents required to enable students to carry out appropriate management tasks.
One of the most characteristic methodological approaches used by ESIC is the reduced number of students
in each class that facilitates the debate an analysis of the above mentioned contents with faculty during normal class work.
Moreover, the Programme also includes practical case studies and exercises in order to develop the students'' analytical skills and an exclusive residential area in China .
They will have to provide solutions by means of putting into practice the knowledge acquired during the programme.
Our faculty is made up by professors with a wide business experience in some of the most important national and international corporations.
Students decision-taking skills are also strengthened through our business simulator which uses the latest computer technology to emulate real business situations.
We truly believe this is the best way to give the students the opportunity to experience the day-to-day activities and responsibilities of a business professional.
Our teaching methodology encourages collaboration among team members to enable them to develop projects and solve case studies.ProgrammePHASE I

It continues with the strategic management approaches which will allow them to develop the ability to analyse and understand the key factors of business management. It then ends by teaching them the basic concepts of accounting, and learning the most usual quantitative methods, facilitating a level of comprehension which lays the foundations to easily follow the exercises and case studies given throughout the course.
