EADA Business School (www.eada.edu) is a leading academic institution with a unique background and has kept its ideological and financial independence.  The School, founded in 1957, has maintained the values of equality, independence, personal development, academic excellence and global vision, which have traditionally characterised it. All of this as a private, non-profit foundation, governed by a Board that oversees the continuity and sustainability of EADA Business School (Board mainly comprising high-profile business people and active professionals). 

Eada has been awarded the AMBA and EQUIS accreditations, which recognize the quality of its Masters and MBA programs, and is also a member of AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).

EADA is ranked by Financial Times: Among the 25 best business schools in Europe in 2021; among the top 50 Masters in International Management (37), and Masters in Finance (28) in the world in 2021; among the best 100 MBA programes in the world in 2021; among the top 50 business schools worldwide in Executive Education (33) in 2022.

Moreover, Eada has been rated among the top nine (to update in June?) business schools for their positive impact in society. The Positive Impact Rating (https://www.positiveimpactrating.org/) measures how business schools contribute to solving societal challenges by energising the school and its culture, by educating responsible leaders and by being a role model institution.

EADA is a member of the Executive Committee of the Spanish Network of the United Nations Global Compact, the largest voluntary initiative in the world in corporate social responsibility. EADA’s commitment to sustainable business has been reinforced through its collaboration with PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education of the United Nations).

In 2021, EADA has established a strategic partnership with Ashoka (https://www.ashoka.org/en), an organisation dedicated to building and cultivating a community of change leaders who see that the world now requires everyone to be a changemaker. In line with EADA’s own stated mission, Ashoka aims to establish collaborations to transform institutions and cultures worldwide, so they support changemaking for the good of society. The alliance has the objective to bring together EADA’s major stakeholders: our participants, our faculty members, our corporate partners, and of course, changemakers.

The main EADA campus is located in the hearth of Barcelona, just a 10 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya and the most famous of Gaudi’s buildings. The newly remodelled EADA-Barcelona City Centre Campus consists of 4,000 m2 of intelligent, sustainable study space. Moreover, EADA has its own campus dedicated to the development of leadership skills, Collbató Residential Training Campus located 40 km from Barcelona in the town of Collbató.
