EADA Business School Barcelona
When it comes to where to study for your master’s, there can’t be many better places than Barcelona. It’s one of the best cities to live in Europe, with a climate that brings 300+ days of sun every year and an international population of around 20%. But it’s also home to a number of business schools that are establishing Spain as a leading force in business education – including EADA Business School.
EADA is ranked among the top 30 European business schools by the Financial Times and can point to a proven track record of success for its graduates. Their learning-by-doing approach to teaching equips its students with the skills that employers look for, such as the ability to respond to change, the versatility to work in multifunctional teams, and the capacity to adapt to a global environment. It’s part of the reason why more than 90% of EADA graduates are employed within three months of graduation.
EADA’s master’s programs cover a range of business topics including marketing, business analytics, tourism, management, and finance. Their Master in Management is ranked among the top 20 programs in the world by The Economist. Targeted at recent graduates or those with limited work experience, it develops the core management skills of students alongside specialist electives focusing on consultancy, global innovation, and entrepreneurship. The Master in Finance program was developed in conjunction with leading financial institutions, which also regularly recruit graduates of the program. It’s an example of the close links that EADA fosters with the business community, and the advantages they provide for its graduates.
