MBA - Master in Business Administration

Do you want to carry out strategic and global training in key business areas?

In such a changing and competitive environment as today, where companies compete in contexts of uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity and volatility, it is essential for managers to develop a comprehensive vision of the company to adapt to the speed of changes without losing sight of the business strategy. The success of the professionals that companies demand will depend on the use of multidisciplinary and multifunctional knowledge and skills in solving problems in the day to day of the company, and being able to lead the continuous changes faced by companies.

ESEUNE Business School, is a prestigious international business school, based in Bilbao (Spain) and Bjeing (China) with more than 25 years of experience in the development of MBA programs.


We propose the combination of a methodological mix based on three axes:



3.Professional development.

Through this methodology, it is possible to facilitate and adapt learning to the needs of an increasingly demanding competitive environment that requires continuous learning and relearning.

How are the training sessions developed?

1.Face-to-face sessions.

Essentially practical teaching, based on the professional experiences of teachers and the acquisition of validated methodologies and work models.

2.Practical cases.

Discussion and realization of practical cases, through which the students will work as a team and can propose solutions applying the acquired knowledge.

3.Virtual campus.

Virtual platform where students will find the necessary resources to solve practical cases. It is also a tool to facilitate group communication and is a meeting place to discuss, consult and propose topics of interest.

4.Online tutorials.

Through the virtual platform, students can solve doubts and maintain contact with the faculty.


We will rely on different technology solutions that will allow participants to experiment with real tools, currently used by companies in their digital transformation processes.

How is experiential learning enhanced?

1. Outdoor Training.

Activities outside the classroom that seek to deepen the fundamental managerial competencies in organisations in contexts of uncertainty and complexity (leadership, teamwork, innovation, resilience, executive intelligence, communication, conflict resolution, etc).

2. In-house cases.

We will recreate real cases in companies in various sectors (footwear, retail, luxury, logistics, industrial, services, toys, tourism, technology, etc.) and in addition to visiting and knowing the facilities of each company. MBA participants will try to solve a real challenge of the company led by a manager of the same. Inhouse cases will be an excellent opportunity to test the knowledge and methodologies acquired in the MBA, as well as being an opportunity to develop networking with companies in the area.

3. START UP HUB by The Ifedes Way.

The final project of the MBA will consist of a HUB, whereby in work teams, it will be proposed to develop a business idea and turn it into reality. Participants will have the support of IFEDES WAY, who are an organisation specialising in business acceleration, currently counting with more than 30 companies on their portofolio, and having launched more than 100 companies. IFEDES WAY is led by Tomás Guillén, President of the National Association of Business Angels.

How do we help you boost your career development?

1.Talent map.

Participants will conduct a Talent Diagnosis process, led by the Aquora Talent Search team, with the aim of defining their current leadership profile, and design a customized action plan for their career development.

2.Talent Bank.

All the participants will become part of our talent bank, accessing job offers from different sectors and companies.
