Message from the director Nigel Hayes

The International Master in Management programme is not just another year of university - it is the first step in your professional career. You will learn via the case study method in a group of maximum 30 participants. Active participation is a requirement and the diversity in the classroom ensures an enriching and profound learning experience. During your journey at EADA you will be encouraged to challenge your assumptions as you are exposed to a combination of academic and professional faculty. While the MiM is a general management programme, you will discover where your passion lies through the specialisation tracks offered in the third trimester. Apart from your studies at our Barcelona city centre campus, you will develop professional and personal skills at our unique residential training centre.
