EADA Business School has committed to being a teaching-oriented institution since its foundation in 1957. The vision of preparing professionals that would be able to engage with the world of business and help organizations develop is reflected in the school’s mission to be "Where Business People Grow".
To ensure all programs accomplish the objective of including a practical development of managerial skills in line with social, social, environmental, and economic goals, the school has developed the EADA's Sustainable Leadership model. The model orients participants' development towards alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This translates into a strong presence of companies and practitioners engaged in sustainability and societal engagement projects in the classroom. Program participants also need to demonstrate to corporate audiences their ability to turn theory, models, and concepts into practical proposals. All final projects are expected to have a real-life component, and all participants are expected to engage with the needs of management.
EADA has recently developed a strategic partnership with Ashoka Spain, an organization dedicated to building and cultivating a community of change leaders who see that the world now requires everyone to be a changemaker. This partnership allows participants to develop their final work with an Ashoka fellow and be evaluated by several stakeholders.
