We are an independent, non-profit making institution founded in Barcelona (Spain) in 1957.
We believe in organisations and firms with human values.
We are dedicated to the training and development of people and to furthering professional excellence.
Through research and education we intend to train managers of companies and organisations who are economically efficacious, socially responsible and environmentally friendly.
We intend to continue over time in order to be able to bear an influence on society.
We manage ourselves efficiently. We need to make a profit through our activity in order to ensure a sound and viable future for our institution.
The values we share:
Independent thinking: We defend freedom of thought and mutual respect, ethical values, respect for people and democratic values.
Responsible actions: Corporate decisions need to be taken based on reflection, transparency, best practices and social responsibility.
Sustainable actions: We are committed to respect for the environment and sustainability.
Integrity: Part of our task is to maintain a self-critical attitude, honest to ourselves and straight forward in our professional relationships. We abide by current legislation and firmly believe in people's equality irrespective of their identity.
Learning by doing: We believe that professional development demands effort, participation, reflection and common sense. Participants need to be the protagonists of their own learning process and the institution must guide and tutor this process.
Entrepreneurship: We develop the essential competencies individuals need in order to take risks, address new challenges and create wealth by starting up companies.
Quality: Our educational activity is in keeping with international quality standards and we are periodically subject to evaluations by our participants, accreditation agencies and international bodies.
Internationalisation: It is our vocation to make other people and organisations participate in our values irrespective of their country of origin.
To train people so that they can contribute to making organisations more efficacious and efficient.
To design training plans in order to develop individuals' knowledge, skills and attitudes. Of special relevance among the latter is "learning how to learn".
To manage ourselves as a financially independent private company which exists because our customers are willing to pay for the services we offer them.
At EADA you will not only acquire knowledge but above all management skills which will enable you to optimise this knowledge in your professional development.
How we work?
We design programmes where the mix between knowledge, skills and attitudes depends on the role that each person takes on in their work place.
The teaching methodologies we use are at the service of the learning objectives. The mix of methodologies varies depending on the mix of knowledge, skills and attitudes.
The essential pedagogical resources, including the faculty are at the service of the methodology employed.
We collaborate with partners, sharing knowledge, information and work tools.
We work with other people and are ready to teach them and to learn from them. This requires perseverance and dedication.
