To support and grow with responsible leaders
At EADA Business School, we work with our own model of sustainable and responsible leadership that promotes values and practices based on positive economic, environmental and social impact.
We firmly believe in the multiplier effect and the impact that current and future business leaders can create in society through this type of leadership, in both existing profit-driven companies and future purpose-driven organisations.
The axes of sustainable leadership at EADA
At EADA, we understand this idea of new leadership as an evolution in the demands of society on the business world, which leads to a change in the way that people and organisations operate to become leaders and maintain their position in the sector. Generating economic growth is no longer enough; social responsibility, ethical conduct and leadership are also key aspects to growth.
Our work involves preparing professionals and organisations to achieve the highest social, economic and environmental standards, and guarantee that they understand, become involved and promote this change, enabling them to meet all their stakeholder obligations.
To achieve this, EADA and our Sustainability Hub create knowledge and translate sustainability research into real impact through training programmes, collaborations and initiatives for our stakeholders: our participants, Alumni, staff and corporations and companies, among others.
