ESADE MBA student clubs offer you the chance to develop leadership and management skills, expand your interests and meet likeminded people. The clubs are divided into two categories: business and social. Being active in a club is a clear signal to prospective employers that you’re a team player with broad interests, and that you have the drive to follow your passion. All of the clubs are run by students and coordinated by the MBA student association (MBASA).
MBA Student Association
Who we are
The MBASA Board is a student elected body comprising of nine students, and serves as an interactive platform connecting students, faculty, programme management and alumni. We want students to have the best year of their lives, where they build lifelong connections and grow into resonant, inspiring and successful leaders. To achieve this vision we promote, support and empower students in their projects and ideas, to enhance the ESADE MBA experience.

MBASA clubs are divided into two camps: business and social
Business clubs range in focus from tech and media to marketing and consulting and beyond. Social clubs cover a wide diversity of interests from sporting to music to “better halves.”
Business clubs are managed by the MBASA and leverage their position within ESADE to create learning, networking and exposure opportunities for members. Boards are elected democratically and the election of key positions is often fiercely competitive. Club events provide a good platform for firms who wish to recruit or gain on-campus exposure. Each club has one Associate Director from Career Services assigned to work closely with them.
Finding the right work/life balance is key during both your MBA and your professional career.
Barcelona has much to offer but you don’t have to go far from campus to find something to stimulate you. Whether you want to give rein to your Latin rhythm, hit the slopes or simply have a good night out with other MBAs and their partners, our Social Clubs have what it takes.
“Being part of The Esade MBA gives you the opportunity to interact with and learn from the most diverse group of people; serving as a MBASA Representative, as VP of Finance and Clubs enhances this experience that much more and gives you the opportunity to be involved in the process and help shape the experience of your batch”.
