“EADA gave me the opportunity --and the tools-- to develop both personally and professionally. The exposure to different cultures and diverse teams throughout the programme gave me an edge and prepared me to work in multinational companies. Just like in the professional world, you need to work together to succeed by learning each team member’s strengths and weaknesses. Knowledge is very important in my current position, but soft skills are vital in my line of business.”
