Before you can learn to act, you must first learn to think

The ESADE MSc in International Management is a space to stop, take a step back and contemplate.  

This is where you define what kind of leader you want to be, the values you want to uphold and the objectives you want to pursue.

You’ll learn to lead, but a different type of leadership based on systemic thinking and long term view of the challenges we face. To do so, you’ll have to develop a key skill: the ability to manage yourself.
