Personal recommendation
Take time to make a good decision about where you´ll live, it will be important. I lived with all exchange students, but I would have preffered to have a few catalán people living with me also.

Make a serious effort to get out, learn the culture, and cross boundaries- meeting the locals, doing some travel, and finding the best aspects of daytime and nightime activities in and around barcelona

My experience in ESADE
Helena S
Spain, Undergraduate
Business Studies, 2021
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.

I wish I had known...
Looking back, there's so much I wish I would have known. But if I would have known it, I don't think it would have been the same experience that it was. I think everyone wants to know a lot before they go to a different place, but it's almost good to go there without knowing everything, because then you don't know what to expect. If there's anything I would suggest, make a list of things that you want to do, and make sure you do them. Plan them either before or after you get over there, but be open to change. For once, go with the flow and see where it takes you. Other people will know of great things to do as well, so don't be set on doing everything that you read in travel guides. You may find something even more amazing. And odds are that if you're doing something in a travel guide, everyone else who reads that travel guide is going to be doing it too.

I recommend studying there and living with native Spanish-speakers. Meet international students and try to interact with the local students as well.

Travel throughout Spain. You can go to other European countries later in life. There is so much to see in Spain, so you might as well see it while you are studying there. Go to the major cities. Go with international students. Hang out with international students. Everyone has different views and opinions but deep down we are all just students who are looking to have a great time before real life begins. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. People who went there love talking about the experience and can recommend tons of things to do.

Great international atmosphere, tons of academic and networking opportunities, poor career management team

Overall
Great international school, friendly environment more like a boutique school, tons of academic and networking opportunities, during my MBA program the career management team was in a transformation period, so they couldn't help as much as I was expecting. All professors, are phd and strong in their fields. Not all has great english accent.  Barcelona is a great city to hang out.

Probably just to relax a little more, not worry about getting things done since it is much easier than I thought.

If it is at all possible, study abroad. For many it is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to live in another country. Don't obsess about the short-term sacrifices you make by going.

ESADE is considered as one of the best Management schools. Classes tought mix theory and real case exercises which was different from my university. Languages classes provided are of good quality. Access to library, computers etc is available and of good quality

Final comments
I chose to live close to the university so as to avoid the morning city rush to go to class. I shared a flat with two native spanish which really helped to improve my spanish. The place was however sometimes empty so you should think of how many people you wish to be around. Access to any place in the city is easy and cheap so going out is not a problem (cabs are also available). Barcelona is a great city to live in but also to visit. I think I still haven't seen everything. I can only encourage people to go there as long as possible. Try to meet spanish native as much as possible as you will often be tempted to speak an other language with other students from abroad.
