At EAE Business School, we help you make the right decisions to become the professional that you have decided to be. To achieve this, right from day one, we accompany you and show you that we are here to help you take the leap forward that you are aiming for.
Recently, hundreds of students from all of the world have started their professional studies with us and, to show our commitment to them, we have done our best to make them feel right at home, as we do every year, with our EAE Welcome program.
As the organizers Úrsula Molina and Yaiza González explain, “the EAE Welcome is the in-person experience designed to help new students settle in. During this period, we give them a warm welcome to EAE Business School and accompany them as they embark on the new professional and life journey that they have chosen with us”.
Unlike in previous editions, this year’s EAE Welcome program has not lasted a week but rather almost an entire month, with a range of different services and activities designed for the various profiles, at different times and venues.
“The Welcome program has all been organized with a lot of energy and passion. Most importantly, it aims to give students everything they need to settle in and feel part of the EAE Community”. In Madrid, the School held almost 600 in-person and online events, and around 350 in Barcelona.
To get a more in-depth overview of this special edition of the EAE Welcome, we decided to find out more about the experience from the event organizers:
How has the implementation of the EAE Welcome 2020 been? How has it differed from previous years?
It has all gone surprisingly well in terms of the attendance and participation of the EAE students. The School welcomes international students from a wide range of countries and, in view of the global uncertainty that exists at the moment, we were not sure that we would be able to welcome many of them in person. However, the circumstances have been kind to us and the students are motivated enough to embark on this experience that it has all gone really well and normally, ensuring compliance with the safety and hygiene protocol at all times.
What did the schedule of the Welcome program consist of?
We organized activities such as:
Of all the conferences, masterclasses and sessions organized, which would you highlight? Which have had the best response?
In fact, there has been a great response to all the masterclasses and sessions with the partners, with lots of registrations and participants both in person and online:
In the case of Madrid, the sporting activities at Altafit also generated a lot of interest. The students enjoyed them so much that some of them took part more than once!
What was the students’ induction like?
We took great care, complying with the protocol in terms of safe distancing, facemasks and hygiene. At EAE Business School, we have managed to ensure that the students’ induction has been safe and satisfactory throughout this four-week experience.
The students have taken part in the different activities, depending on their preferences. The have met their key points of contact and discovered our student services, as well as having the opportunity to get to know each other right from the start.
What message would you like to give to our readers and, in particular, anybody who is just starting their programs at EAE?
You have made an important decision. You have chosen us to achieve the progress you seek at an academic level and to prepare for a new professional journey.
The whole EAE team has worked passionately to ensure that your experience over this period is as fulfilling as possible within the framework of the conditions imposed by Covid-19.
We hope that you are feeling motivated and excited about the opportunity that this experience offers through the School.
Make the most of it and enjoy yourself!
