ESEI’s two-year MBA programme is all about putting the theory from the first year of your master’s degree into practice.
Once you have completed your one-year master’s programme, you’ll move into the MBA internship semester, which gives you the chance to benefit from valuable professional experience in an industry relevant to your future goals. Working with real objectives in a company that’s relying on you to add value also helps you see the academic knowledge and professional skills you acquired in the first year from a practical standpoint.
In the second semester you will go into greater theoretical depth, producing an extensive thesis that analyses your work experience in detail and reflects on your experience. By the end of the year, you will have gained the sector-specific knowledge and the analytical skills necessary to thrive in your chosen field.
You can take any of the 60 ECTS one-year masters programmes at ESEI and choose to extend the programme to a specialised MBA of 120 ECTS.
The structure is as follows:
Year 1: Taught track of 60 ECTS
Year 2: Experiential Track of 60 ECTS
The Experiential track consists of two semesters. During semester one, you will complete an evaluated internship with tutor supervision. In semester 2, you will complete a thesis project of 20,000 words, which you must defend in front of a panel at the end.
If you wish to progress to the Specialised MBA, you must notify ESEI in writing at the end of the first semester of the taught track. Your progress and participation will be evaluated before permission is extended as you must demonstrate the aptitude and motivation for independent study before they can proceed.
You must complete the taught track before the experiential track, and the semester order cannot be modified.
