Required Documents

To apply for our Bachelor programme, you must show successful completion of your secondary education from an accredited secondary school. This should include your high school diploma and transcripts of your final year. Your transcripts should include courses taken and grades achieved. There are no prerequisite subjects required to access our Bachelor programme.

All documents must be issued in English language, and bear the stamp and signature of an authorised official of your secondary school. An official translation will be required for documents issued in any language other than English.

You must be fluent in English to participate and fully benefit from our programmes.

If English is not your native language, we accept all internationally recognized certificates such as IELTS (minimum requirement: 6.0) and TOEFL iBT (minimum requirement 78) as proof of your English proficiency.

If you do not have an IELTS or TOEFL, but have a good command of English, you can apply directly without proof of English Proficiency. If this is the case, after your admission interview, you may be required to take the free EnglishScore test to confirm your level of English.

If you do not have the required English level, you will need to take our English preparation Course before starting your programme of choice.

Your motivation level will determine your success as a leader. This also applies to your studies at ESEI and your future/current professional career.

Your statement of purpose is your Motivation Letter telling us about your background, experience, why you have chosen to apply for the programme, why you consider yourself a good candidate and your future professional goals. Your statement should be at least 300 words in length.

Someone who is able to comment on your academic/professional performance should write your letter of reference. This can be a professor who has taught you or a current / ex-employer if you have work experience. The letter should include the referee’s relationship with you, how long they have known you, your abilities, and why they consider you a suitable candidate for the programme. Your reference letter should also include the contact details of your referee.

If you are an EU citizen, you can apply with a valid national ID card. If you are a non-EU citizen, you must apply with a valid international passport valid for the duration of your programme. You will need to send a scanned copy of the data page of document in color. 

Master & International MBA

To apply for our Master or International MBA programmes, you must show successful completion of your undergraduate studies from an accredited higher education institution. This should include your bachelor degree certificate and final academic transcripts including courses taken and grades achieved. There are no prerequisite subjects for any of our Master programmes.

In the absence of a Bachelor degree, you can apply with evidence of accredited professional experience of at least 5 years in the relevant sector. The documents that must be presented are: (1) Employment history document (for example the Vida Laboral in Spain), except if your work experience was in a country where this document does not exist. (2) A signed company certificate that includes the start and end dates and the functions performed.

While GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) might be recommended in certain cases, it is not obligatory for admission to any of our Master programmes. If you’ve recently completed the GRE or are planning to do so, you have the option to designate ESEI International Business School as a recipient of your score by using our GRE Designated Institution (DI) Code 1160.

Documents must be issued in English language, and bear the stamp and signature of an authorised university official. An official translation will be required for documents issued in any language other than English.

Additional Requirement for UCAM Degrees

If the Master programme you're applying for is UCAM accredited, you'll need to send us the requirements in this section no later than two weeks after the start of your programme to obtain your UCAM diploma. You can check whether your programme is UCAM accredited on each programme page.

This is the procedure established by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport for applying the equivalency scales and tables of average grades for foreign studies and university degrees, taking into account the Resolution of 21 March 2016 and the instructions contained in the Resolution of 20 June 2016, and obtaining the average grade equivalent to the grading scales of Spanish universities.

The Hague Convention Apostille is a simplified method for the legalisation of documents for the purpose of verifying their authenticity in the environment of international private law. It physically consists of a page added to documents which the competent authority stamps on a copy of the public document. Information on the legalisation procedure should be obtained from the university at which the course of study was completed, consular services in the country of issue or the competent authority in each case. For reference, you may consult HccH website.

Where an apostille is not possible, legalisation of documents should be carried out by the diplomatic mission or consular office of Spain in the country of issue.

Legalisation is not required for documents issued within European Union member states and countries signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area or a bilateral agreement with the European Union. However, certificates issued by universities in these countries must have been issued with the approval of the rector or equivalent figure and bear the corresponding signature.

This is a copy of your academic records which includes an endorsement or certificate that it is a true copy of the primary document.
