On Thursday 12th February, we were pleased to welcome the new students on the Study Abroad Programme. These international students will join the programme of EAE’s Bachelor Degree in Business Administration and Management for the second semester of the current academic year and will study at the School until June.
Our new students were welcomed in the morning at EAE’s Campus on Calle Tarragona in Barcelona for the first meeting of international students, with the participation of Federica Garuti, EAE’s International Relations Manager and Andrés de Andrés, Director of the Bachelor Degree in BAM at EAE Business School.
The new students come from France, Italy, Holland, Mexico, Colombia, Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom, Argentina and other countries around the world. Moreover, on this occasion, the number of students participating on the Study Abroad programme has set a new record, as there have never previously been as many international students coming to take part on the Bachelor Degree Programme. The new arrivals join those who arrived in September, who will be spending the whole year with us. Some of these students come from the Partner Institutions and Schools with which EAE has established academic partnerships.
The Study Abroad programme is an extremely rewarding experience. Studying in another country is always a positive and revealing experience, not just at a personal level but also from an academic and cultural perspective. Living and studying in a foreign country and coming into contact with other cultures, customs, people and languages promotes the development of competences that are valued by future recruiters, as well as giving the students their own unique experience.
Nowadays, the competitive employment market requires you to stand out from the rest and an international educational experience is the perfect way to do so. Gaining international experience makes a great impact on your curriculum, as it shows potential recruiters that you are motivated and independent, as well as your general qualifications. Furthermore, developing foreign language skills gives students the option of choosing from a much broader range of employment opportunities.
The team at EAE would like to wish the new students a great stay during their time with us. WELCOME!
