Last Wednesday, EAE’s students who began their studies in April 2014 had the chance to enjoy a Closing Ceremony for their programmes, to mark the end of all of these months of hard work and effort.

The team at EAE organized a Closing Ceremony for all of the students, held in the Círculo Ecuestre for Barcelona students and in the Club Financiero Génova for their counterparts in Madrid.
The venues for the events were carefully selected by the School. On the one hand, set in the heart of the capital’s financial district overlooking the Plaza de Colón and the National Library, the Club Financiero Génova sets a new standard of luxury and excellence in a city renowned for its exceptional services. The Club forms part of a prestigious global finance network with correspondent relations with other clubs stretching from Hong Kong to Paris. On the other hand, Barcelona’s Círculo Ecuestre is an institution of key importance in the professional and personal life of the city’s inhabitants. The private club has one of the longest histories in Europe. The Círculo Ecuestre is an exclusive association, the members of which are prominent and influential figures of society.
The event began with speeches from the School’s Academic Directors, Raúl Bravo in EAE Madrid and Josep María Altarriba in EAE Barcelona.
We also had the chance to enjoy the participation of our departing students, on behalf of their classmates that are now coming to the end of their Masters. They shared a few words with us, summarizing their time at the School, by way of farewell.
Representing the Master in Corporate Communication Management at EAE Madrid, Olberg Sanz stated that “this event is significant because it is the last time that the participants of the April 2014 programmes will all come together in the company of the authorities of EAE Business School. Some will head back to their home countries, and this gives us cause for a little early nostalgia and melancholy, despite the joy and satisfaction of having completed another stage of academic training.
Olberg was one of the appointed speakers asked to share a few words with his classmates at the Ceremony. He went on to say that “Apart from the inherent responsibility involved, speaking on behalf of the Class represents a double challenge: summarizing meaningful anecdotes from the last 9 months, and generating enough of an impact to ensure that the speech is moving and stands the test of time”.
Afterwards, the traditional Christmas cocktail party and celebration took place, with both the EAE Directors and the Programme Coordinators sharing a few final words to bring the event to a close.
“We are sharing a truly exciting evening here at the Closing Ceremony of the Class of April 2014. This is an evening to congratulate the students for their efforts over the last few months that have now brought them a little closer to achieving their dreams. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the teachers for their commitment and dedication, as well as the whole team at EAE for making it possible,” said Beatriz Pedreira, Academic Coordinator at EAE Business School at the Madrid Campus.
As Pilar so rightly added, “it only remains to wish them all a future full of success and ask them to keep hold of the memories of their experience with us”.
The best of luck and farewell! See you at the 2015 Graduation Ceremony.
