ESADE Reports Strong Job Placement Statistics amid Record High Unemployment in Spain
Though staggering unemployment still proves one of Spain’s most pressing problems, graduates from Barcelona’s ESADE Business School are finding jobs soon after graduation, often in other countries, the school announced this week.
ESADE held its MBA Career Forum last week, attracting a wide range of leading companies across sectors including technology, healthcare, energy, finance and consulting. Among those in attendance were Google, Amazon, Microsoft, American Express, L’Oréal, The Boston Consulting Group, Morgan Stanley, McKinsey & Co, Credit Suisse Private Banking, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Clinton Health Access Initiative, Desigual and Johnson & Johnson.
The school reports that more than 90 percent of MBA students secure employment within three months of graduating, more than 80 percent of them taking a job outside of Spain. The school noted that the Financial Times, in its recent annual ranking, ranked ESADE third in the world for the career advancement opportunities offered to students.
According to the most recent placement report available on the ESADE website, the majority of ESADE MBA graduates took jobs in consulting (33 percent) and manufacturing (26 percent).
For prospective applicants interested in learning more about the ESADE MBA, the school will host an International Information Session tomorrow, February 13th, in Seoul, Korea, and a Campus Visit Day on Thursday, February 14th, at the school’s Barcelona Sant Cugat campus.
