Not to live in the Residence Hall. I lived there for about a month and it was a waste of money. It was also very isolating socially, as most students lived downtown and cab rides to the Res Hall were quite expensive. Also, get a mobile phone as soon as you can. It improves your social life immensely and is very cheap and easy to use. The mobile phone system is far better than the system in the United States.

Personal recommendation
The university is small, but they do plan a lot of diverse and fun activities for exchange students. Through the university alone, I went on a ski trip to Andorra, trips to Girona and Figueres. ESADE sponsored a "sports competition weekend" at a resort in the country that was really fun. There was an end-of-semester ball and a Christmas party, in addition to the weekly parties planned in conjunction with local clubs. Academically, ESADE has a good reputation. If you're looking for a challenge, this may not be the place, but you can learn a lot if you choose to. I was able to take my classes pass/fail, so it wasn't a huge priority for me.

I have to say the year spent in Barcelona was the best in my life. Although I can't say I was challenged academically, I was challenged in so many other ways, especially with language and cultural barriers. Barcelona is my favorite city in Europe. It is completely unique. It's not a typical Spanish city, but it's not like any other European city either. It has beautiful architecture, the sea, and the mountains, all in one. There are so many things to do there, but it is also not TOO far away from the rest of Europe or Spain by train. If you can't study there, you MUST go visit.

nothing special, maybe just that you always need some time to adapt, to learn people... but that's everywhere the same and for some people it's more easy than for other

Good career outlook

Overall
Th BBA offers a good diversity of core + elective classes for the student's preferred field (marketing, finance, operations, HR, digital...). Classes are structured in lecture and practical sessions for absorbing knowledge and putting it into practice. Study is intensive, classes are three hours long, a day can have anywhere from 1 class to 3 classes (3, 6 or 9 hours of class). Language courses are not optional and the the selection is a bit limited.
Employers of BBA students commonly are renowned international firms. Future career outlook is very positive and career services and support are good.

It is a good school, one of the best for business in spain. The classes in the 5th year are very good, interactive and small. I did not participate in the class discussions as much as I would have liked because of the language problem. Overall, the classes were stimulating, not too much work, and there is a lot of support for international students here.

Try to schedule your classes so you don┤t have class on monday or friday, or both. Use the long weekends to travel around spain, there is a lot to see.

Overall
For these past two years I have been studying my BBA here in ESADE Business School. My teachers have been great and have provided me a closer overview to what the real life in an enterprise works. I have also been able to start creating a good network and been able to be part of activities such as The Consulting Academy 2019 or La Liga de Debate de ESADE which have allowed me to develop very useful skills such as oral speaking and team works.
