EADA (Escuela de Alta Dirección y Administración) was founded in Barcelona in 1957 by two consultants, with the support of a group of business leaders, in response to a clear need for a more professional approach to business management in Spain. Their aim was to provide high quality ongoing executive education to the business community. Although its mission has not changed in the 55 years since it was established, in the spirit of the founders, EADA is continuously adapting to the changing conditions of today’s business environment and ensuring its relevance through innovative approaches to executive management education and its contribution to the development of people. Today EADA is an executive education centre which enrols a total of 4,200 participants on its programmes each year. The current portfolio of 48 programmes includes a wide range of degree and non degree - open as well as customised programmes which vary in length, location and modular design.
