History: More than 120,000 participants from over 50 different countries have entrusted their training to EADA, one of the most prestigious business schools in Spain.

Address: EADA has two campuses: one is in the centre of Barcelona, and the other is a residential training centre situated in the beautiful surroundings of Collbató, just outside the city.

Ambience: EADA has developed its own practical, active and participative approach with an emphasis on learning by doing. This approach offers a unique study environment with classes of around 30 participants in which students will collaborate with classmates and faculty from all over the world, specially selected to contribute to a challenging and rewarding learning environment.

Vital statistics: EADA is ranked among the top 100 business schools in the world, and has been awarded accreditations by both EQUIS and AMBA.

Added value: EADA is one of the few business schools in Europe to have its own “Residential Training Centre”.

Once participants have completed the MBA, they have the opportunity to go on one of the exchange programmes which EADA has established with world renowned training institutions abroad. The exchanges are three months long, with destinations countries including France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Japan, Peru, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Mexico, Argentina and the USA.

Glittering alumni: José Luis Bonet, president, Freixenet; Miguel Valls, president, Barcelona Chamber of Commerce; Amancio López, president, Hotusa; Julio Fernandez, president, Filmax.

International connections: In spring, EADA hosts "International Weeks", during which visiting professors from all over the world teach two-week seminars on current topics related to business management.

Student profile: The average participant in the MBA programme is 29 years old with four years of professional experience. Women make up 42 per cent of the programme. The average in the MSc programmes is 24.

Cost: The International MBA (taught in English) is €29,500.

Who's the boss? David Parcerisas is President of the Board of Trustees of EADA.
