ESADE Business & Law School, together with the ESADE Alumni Insurance Club and ARAG, an insurance company specialised in legal defence and travel assistance, have created the ARAG–ESADE Alumni Insurance Club Scholarship. An initiative of the ESADE Challenge for Talent – a campaign created by the ESADE Scholarship Programme to encourage private donations from individuals and companies – this new scholarship aims to attract talent and provide opportunities for students with an outstanding academic record who want to study at ESADE but could not otherwise afford to do so.
The ARAG–Insurance Club Scholarship, created by the Executive Board of the ESADE Alumni Insurance Club in collaboration with ARAG, covers 90% of tuition for one student for the duration of a four-year undergraduate degree: the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), the Bachelor in Law, or the Bachelor in Law & Bachelor in Global Governance.
Eugenia Bieto, Director General of ESADE, thanked the ESADE Alumni Insurance Club for its commitment to the school: “I am proud to see that our alumni, through the various platforms that link them to ESADE, are fostering the institution’s values, helping to eliminate economic barriers and promoting the education of young people who, now more than ever, need someone to trust in their talent and offer new opportunities.”
“For our club, this initiative is a first step towards facilitating access to quality education for people who, without our collaboration, would not have this opportunity,” commented Francesc Rabassa, President of the ESADE Alumni Insurance Club. “We hope that this collaboration will set an example and inspire more people and institutions to help foster talent in ESADE’s classrooms.”
Marià Rigau, graduate of the ESADE MBA, CEO of the Spanish subsidiary of ARAG SE and member of the group’s executive committee, commented: “ARAG is proud to take part in the act of responsibility that is supporting talent and providing a young student with the chance to experience an ESADE education. Those of us who are ESADE alumni know that this is a truly transformative opportunity.”
