Raúl Bravo, the Director of EAE's Madrid campus began his speech by congratulating the students and their families for concluding the Master. In addition, Raúl asked them to think of the School as their home and a place to maintain a long-term bond with EAE. Raúl Bravo gave the students of the Executive MBA, who now join EAE's alumni community, an explanation of how change occurs automatically when you take an MBA: "The change is already within each of you when you do the Master".
Carlos Andreu, the highest rated lecturer at EAE and teacher in the MBA, highlighted the importance of networking and advised the alumni to continue studying and reading to keep up to date. Carlos also recommended keeping alert to detect opportunities and capitalize on them fully. "We have to be open in a changing environment and detect opportunities, even though they may not seem advantageous at first". Moreover, Carlos Andreu emphasized the importance of data. "Speak the language of data so that you can use it to argue". The student Fernando García also underlined the role of networking, advising the MBA students to stay in touch. "It has been a really rewarding experience and we have supported each other a great deal to try and work towards a common goal and cooperate in an extremely healthy way".
Antonio Arranz was the special guest at the dinner. The Director of Grupo Dia for over three decades, Antonio remembered his time on an Executive MBA as a very interesting and rewarding period of interchange of experiences. Having spent most of his professional life in the world of finance, Antonio said that, thanks to the Executive MBA, he gained a more global overview of what the company was. Due in large part to the MBA, Antonio "acquired enough knowledge to work in all areas of the business", as well as "being enriched at both a personal and professional level". Antonio gave some advice to the attendees: "Don't be afraid of the challenges that await you. Start putting your knowledge into practice right from the first day, so that you don't forget any of it".
Jesús Cardenes, the Director of the MBA emphasized the level of quality of the group, particularly with respect to the Master's Theses, which were built on "some great work". Like Bravo, Cardenes sees the School as a place for students to improve and evolve. Contact with the School is an essential factor for Raúl Bravo, who illustrated the bond between the alumni community. "Don't lose this contact between you and strive to foster it. There are students dating back 25 years and the memories they share are valuable". With all this in mind, Raúl Bravo asked the attendees to "let the EAE team form part of your lives".
Olga Cures, the delegate of the graduating class, thanked her classmates for everything they had learned during the Master. She also emphasized the work of lecturers, such as Carlos Andreu, with their ability to "live the subject with passion" and share it with the students. "I have learned from all my classmates. I have laughed a lot and I am very proud of them", she explained with emotion. She went on to give the attendees some advice: "go forward and don't turn back if something does not convince you". Jesús Gutiérrez, the sub-delegate of the MBA, highlighted the group's level of quality and the bond shared between its members. Lucas Muñoz underlined all they had learned over the course of the year and a half, as well as the professionalism of the academic faculty at EAE Business School, all professionals currently working in the field who give so much to the students of EAE's Executive MBA.
Congratulations to the new graduates of EAE's Executive MBA!
