ESEI’s two-year MBA programme is all about putting the theory from the first year of your master’s degree into practice.


During the first semester you will move into an evaluated internship semester (minimum 3 months), 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. 

You will also participate in:

  • An intensive weekend workshop on Business Agility (which will include a 2-day long project completed during the course). On campus or remote
  • A day-long business simulation game focused in Business Agility. On campus or remote
  • 2 group career coaching sessions. On campus or remote

During 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 will also participate in:

  • An intensive weekend workshop on Sustainable Business (which will include a 2-day long project completed during the course). On campus or remote
  • A day-long business simulation game focused on Sustainable Business. On campus or remote
  • 2 group career coaching sessions. On campus or remote

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 15,000 - 17,000 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.
