TBS Barcelona or Eada ??

  • Posted by - Aether - on 14 September 2014 - 12:43pm


    I'm interested for a Master in Marketing and I'm in between of two options.
    The one is the TBS Barcelona and the other one is Eada Business School. Both of them are in Barcelona.

    Both of them seem great and the price of TBS in much lower than Eada. Also TBS has a 6 month internship, 3 professionalization options (one of them in International Business) and 30 more ECTS.
    On the other hand, Eada has the accreditations of TBS plus some more.

    Do you think that choosing TBS would be a good choise, or you think that Eada is more expensive because it offers better education??
    Could you tell me your opinion please??

    Thank you,

      Also if you have time, I'd like your opinion about the Master in International Bussiness from the University of Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (employment opportunities and stuff like that).

      My main concern is that it doesn't require a GMAT exam.
      Also, my Bachelor's degree is in Computer Science, and even that UPF doesn't require a business degree for this Master, I'm still wondering if that would be right for me.

      Thank you,

        Hi there,

        have you read my MIM eBook already? It provides you with the tools to compare schools such as EADA, TBS, or Pompeu Fabre and to find out which program fits your goals the best.

        Best wishes

          Hello again :)
          I've read most of your book and it helped me a lot, but I have a very specific question.
          As you saw, I'm interested in both International Business and Marketing, so no matter which of these two I choose I'll be happy.
          My Bachelor is in Computer Science (I'm a career changer). I know that someone with that Bachelor can definetely study a Master in Marketing, but can this happen for International Business too??
          The UPF says that previous business experience is not needed, but still I'm worried.

            Hi there,

            read the info box on page 18 in the MIM eBook...?

            By the way, why do you doubt when the schools says that previous business experience is not needed... I mean, it is crystal clear, so why do you doubt?

            Best wishes

              One last comment: If you still have doubts - for example, because the description at the shcool's websiet is not 100% clear to you - why don't you just contact them and ask? That may be the fastest way to get a safe answer, actually.
