“For me, the learning by doing methodology was a definite highlight. EADA uses a hands-on approach in all classes, incorporating case studies, group projects and oral presentations. The methodology was practical, and put us in the shoes of managers who need to take a decision. The content of the courses is also very connected to real life, so I learnt how to apply all the knowledge to real situations.”

Your network

Connect with leaders in the industry.

An integral part of the programme is getting out of the classroom to see case studies in action and network with world-renowned professionals. You gain an inside look into the culture and day-to-day life of a wide range of companies and explore different professions in real operating environments.

Hone your expertise in specialised areas by building relationships with experts facing the same challenges that you analyse in class. Share your ideas and ask questions to become an expert in your own right.
