Spain is host to three top MBA schools among others. IESE Barcelona, IE Madrid and ESADE are consistent top-rated programs in global rankings. They also offer very reputable master’s in management courses and master’s in finance courses. Spanish schools are a huge draw for students from Latin American countries where Spanish is the native language. Spanish schools are great for consulting and entrepreneurship-based programs. The recent economic slowdown in Spain is a concern for post work opportunities. However, for a more global oriented experience Spain is still a top draw. Students from Spanish MBA programs also find opportunities in other European countries.
Spain comes with a great lifestyle quotient with an easy-going culture and great weather and natural locations. It is also a great place to enjoy student life. Rents and living costs in Barcelona could be expensive however.
