A strategic mix of hard skills and soft skills.
Our unique methodology ensures that participants develop the critical thinking skills to analyse and perform well even in today’s toughest business situations. But we go a step further. While hard skills may be enough to get your foot in the door at top companies, your soft skills in communication, negotiation, teamwork and leadership are what keep you there and secure your future in the company.
IMMERSIVE LEARNING on the Virtual Campus
Immersive uses the latest technology to maintain intense, live interaction based on EADA’s “learning by doing” methodology. This type of learning requires attention and an open mind as participants listen to and filter information embedded in a real context. Through immersive learning, students can achieve mastery of a behaviour, technique, or methodology.
HARD SKILLS at the Barcelona City Centre Campus
The newly remodelled EADA-Barcelona City Centre Campus is located in the heart of the city, where you are consistently placed in real-life business situations, challenged to think like an executive and make strategic decisions. Lively class discussions take place in an engaging, multicultural environment, in which you examine real case studies critically and learn from others as they learn from you.
SOFT SKILLS at the Residential Training Campus
The Residential Training Campus provides high impact, lasting learning by pushing you out of your comfort zone. You take part in four 2-day modules during the year, focused on making you the best leader you can be. This experiential learning is combined with professor-led workshops, ensuring that you effectively transfer what you have learned to the workplace.
Lorenzo Giacomelli, Italy
Wealth Management Intern, Banca Patrimoni Sella & C. (Italy)
“I think my time at EADA was essential for my personal development. Not only for what I was taught at an instructive level, but especially for all of the soft skills that I developed during the year. Soft skills are indispensable in the world of work: being able to understand other people's point of view, work in a team made up of colleagues with different backgrounds and reach the same conclusion with excellent results is crucial to success.”
You learn from them as they learn from you.
The International Masters cohort includes between 300 and 400 participants from more than 50 nationalities who interact and network throughout the year. The profile below represents the participants in the Master in Finance and the Master in Accounting & Financial Management.
HEALTH - SAFETY - COMFORT
EADA, like all top international schools, is absolutely prepared to take on an academic year with the flexibility that a global pandemic requires. From June 8, 2020, EADA's doors have been open for face-to-face classes, under strict adherence to the social distancing guidelines required by the authorities. The start of the academic year is confirmed for October and our plan is to continue with this face-to-face model which guarantees safety for our participants and faculty whilst offering flexibility, with classes in online format for those candidates who for various reasons are not able to make the start of the programme in person.
In these times of uncertainty, EADA wants to provide full support and flexibility to our international participants. For this reason we have designed several alternatives.
Full-time Master programmes
- The first trimester will be offered in two formats: face-to-face or online. If some participants cannot travel due to international travel restrictions, we will be able to provide online classes for the first trimester. Contact your Admission Manager by August 30th to let us know your decision of which path you prefer for the first trimester; online or face-to-face.
Full-time MBA programme
We have adapted our first trimester for all our of MBA participants to be able to travel to Spain at any point of time during the 1st trimester as we understand that you might face difficulties or delays in travelling.
The first trimester will be given in an innovative hybrid format, in which face-to-face and virtual classrooms are fully integrated and become one unique space.
Our advanced technology include teacher tracking cameras, writing on blackboard, panoramic view of participants and high quality microphones so the remote participants can interact with their peers and be part of the class activities in real time.
Whether you choose to study online the first trimester or whether we are forced to move online in case of a lock down, EADA will offer a virtual learning environment that ensures a high-quality practical methodology and a personalised learning experience.
EADA has extensive experience in providing online executive education. Our team of academics has been working closely with the department of technology to make the changes necessary to offer an online experience completely aligned with the face-to-face version and fully compliant with the national and international university systems which accredit our diplomas.
EADA is ready to provide a high quality learning and immersive learning experience, in which you will be in the classroom, whether physically or remotely. Thanks to our technology, the virtual format will guarantee a hands-on, interactive methodology and will include a wide range of different events related to networking, recruitment and extracurricular activities. The future of learning starts now and EADA is ready for it.
EADA immersive learning experience will guarantee the academic success of our students and will offer alternatives to the in-person activities that are part of the programmes. The school is not considering partial or full refunds to participants who begin the programme online, or in the case that all classes were temporarily forced to go online. The activities and experiences provided in a virtual environment will meet the academic and personal development objectives of the programmes. The education received will be given by the same team of academics, the number of credits will remain the same and the title gained on completion of the programme will also be the same.
EADA provides different alternative to support you in your project of graduating in 2022 (see question #2). However, if you prefer to defer your enrolment or admission, EADA will also be as supportive and flexible as possible, according to the cancellation conditions that appear on the enrolment form.
More than ever we understand you need our support. We do believe that education brings the tool to navigate through uncertain and changing times and we are supportive of our international applicants that trust EADA’s high level of education to give them the tools to do so. Admissions deadlines have been extended and we have opened rolling admissions for late applicants. Over the years we have designed an application process that is 100% online all while providing a personal assessment to all our candidates. We have developed our own online admission test platform so testing can be done from home. Technology is a way to bring us together and not apart, and you can start planning your future now.
In addition, since springtime we have been finding innovative ways to bring together our future cohort. Masterclasses, alumni webinars, one-on-one chat with your future faculty, and pre courses designed exclusively for our future participants have been just some of the ways we have worked to create a strong connection and assure you that EADA is dedicated to providing a personalised learning experience.
The Spanish government continues to support international students coming to Spain. For students from outside of the European Union, Spain has sent a clear message of welcome to foreign talent: any student visa holder will be allowed to enter the country, regardless of any active travel bans.
EADA is in regular contact with consular authorities to provide personalised feedback for students regarding any issues with the visa procedure in their home country.
If you have any problems in contacting your consulate and getting an appointment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will provide support.
Our future participants receive the support from our partner relocation agency which provide many resources to help with opening bank accounts, finding accommodation and processing residency cards as well as recommendations of things to do in the city. In addition, EADA is preparing welcoming session in September so our international cohort can start networking even before the programme starts. Make sure to arrive in advance!
EADA was not in lockdown at any time during the 2020-21 academic year, and classes have continued uninterrupted.
Thanks to our extensive experience in online teaching, EADA had the tools to take on the challenge to move online classes for all of our 2019-2020 cohort, over only a weekend. During the lockdown, our priority was to provide in this virtual environment, the same quality of classes, real life case simulation and participatory dynamics that characterise our school’s methodology - all while ensuring more than ever personal support to our participants. In company virtual training and coaching session, virtual career fairs have taken place. Several extra curricular activities have been designed to bring together in this unique virtual space participants from their home, staff, international faculty and alumni community spread around the world. EADA was first to reopen its doors to the 2019-20 cohort in early June 2020.
