Welcome to ESEI, the dynamic learning experience!

ESEI International Business School in Barcelona offers a portfolio of internationally outstanding undergraduate, postgraduate, professional, and language programmes which are up to speed with global market trends.

L4- First year Bachelor

Straight from the outset, the 1st year of our bachelors course gives you hands-on exposure to the workings of the world of business. First year gives you a window not only into the foundations of economics, marketing, strategy and leadership, but is integrated with current events and practical situations through which you can learn how the world really works and build up your skill set in analysing, problem-solving and communicating your ideas effectively.

L5- Second year Bachelor

2nd year takes the theory of first year into the experiential dimension. With innovative simulation projects and practical work outside the classroom, our students take control of their own learning. This is also the year where our coaching and personal development sessions help you better understand how you present your personal brand both online and offline; sharpening your professional prospects and employability.

L6- Third year Bachelor

The final year of our bachelor´s degree gives you the freedom and flexibility to combine work and study. You will complete your studies in such areas as International Entrepreneurship, Consumer Behaviour and Global Business Strategy via the University of Derby´s online platform and regular support sessions in ESEI. For the upcoming years, Esei has signed agreements with NCC Education and the University of Worcester. This way, you are free to be wherever you need to be and still have the support you need to graduate with your UK-accredited degree at the end.

What students say

“I really enjoy my time here in ESEI Barcelona. The school is rather small and provides us with very friendly family-like atmosphere, just like my high school. The programme is interesting and we cover a lot of subjects which provide us with wide background knowledge for further business studies. Lectures are entertaining and I really feel I am learning a lot; we very often work in teams on presentations and projects, which I really like. The student body is really multinational, which helps you meet variety of cultures. The city itself has a lot to offer too. It is a totally new experience in my life!”
Maciej Ksiazek, Poland
“After ESEI, I took one year off to get some work experience and I’m now reading a Master’s degree in Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science while working for the Austrian Integration Fund in the Knowledge Management Team. I must say that ESEI turned to be very helpful in handling many challenges in my professional life due to its personal approach and focus”
Laura Neuper, Austria
“I loved what I studied and where I studied it. ESEI gave me a practical and “hands on” perspective of business. During and after my studies, I have always tried to focus on the Entertainment/Audiovisual area. As a result, I have become a film director and I have already directed two short films”
Mauricio Albin, Mexico
“I started as an entrepreneur during my final year of studies. After ESEI, I worked in London and moved back to Colombia where I run my own companies. I had a great time at ESEI and met amazing people. My advice to current ESEI students is to decide what you want, do it and never stop until you achieve it. ESEI will give you the necessary tools to do this!”
Tomás Andrés Vera, Colombia
“My experience in Esei was unforgettable. It´s not a traditional university where everything is overly strict and formal.
Esei’s classes are small which improves the learning quality of the class and you get a very close relationship with your classmates but also your teacher.
The classes are not about studying but about learning, getting new insights and boosting your creativity.
We had several assignments which corresponded to real business cases. We also had to set out a plan for starting our own business, which built on all the subjects we had studied throughout the year.
Aside from classes we also went to some interesting excursions and visited several startups and established businesses.
I am now looking back to a wonderful year with many experiences, knowledge, eager to start a business, great advice from teachers and amazing friends!”
France Van Steen
“ESEI was an institution where learning and enhancing my personal skills were a priority. The community feeling of the university made me feel welcomed and eased my way in to living in Barcelona. All staff members were attentive to my demands, and were trying to make sure I got the most out the experience. My amazing professor, Willem, was able to tailor the courses especially. The emphasis on presentations has prepared me for my business life with all the communication skills I require. Every university staff was easily reachable which I found to be really convenient. My experience exceeded my expectations of a masters course and life living in Barcelona.”
Yasemine Barker, Turkey
