Our Master in Marketing and Communication programme is a one-year programme, which is run over two academic semesters: fall semester (October to February) and spring semester (February to June). You can choose to start the programme either in the Fall or Spring.
Our Master is run on weekdays in the evenings from 6pm to 9pm. You will have classes 2-3 times per week, which allows you to work and study at the same time.
Additionally, if you are a non-EU student who requires a student visa to study in Spain, our Marketing and Communication programme meets the student visa requirements of full time study in Spain.
We recommend that you attend all classes, but we understand that sometimes it can be impossible. Therefore, our Marketing and Communication programme attendance policy allows you to miss 2 out of 6 classes per module without justification. The only reason an absence would be justified is if you are unwell and can provide an official medical note. Remember that any absence will hinder your learning and thus likely jeopardise your results.
Each module within our Marketing and Communication programme has 4 assessment components: a group submission (40%), an individual submission (20%) and a formal oral presentation (20%) for your module project, as well as a participation grade (20%) based on your participation during classes.
Yes! Within your classes, you will have guest speakers in your discipline, and some of your course projects will happen in collaboration with a real business. Additionally ESEI runs guest speaker sessions throughout the year, some of which will focus specifically on Marketing and Communication, and all of which will provide relevant insights for you. Furthemore, you will have visits open throughout the year to different local companies giving you insight into the Barcelona business landscape.
