Madrid has held the latest edition of Welcome EAE for the new Full-Time student on the Masters in Marketing Management, Supply Chain & Management, Financial Management, Marketing and Sales and Online Marketing and Digital Commerce, as well as the MBA and the Master of International Business. With this initiative, the Business School opens its doors to the newest arrivals, who are embarking in a new stage in their lives, a time of change full of excitement and expectations.
In his presentation, César Moreno, a lecturer on the Master in Marketing and Commercial Management, showed a video entitled 'Think different' to emphasize the School's open attitude to change. "Every day, I wake up ready to change the world by teaching you, because you have the opportunity to really do it. Welcome to EAE Business School".
The new members of the EAE Community had the chance to meet members of the team, including Jaime Cubas, the Program Coordinator at EAE Business School. Jaime highlighted EAE's position in the rankings and number of events that are organized each month. "What really matters is what you learn, rather than official status and qualifications", he emphasized. As well as explaining the class dynamics, the level of commitment and effort required, the evaluation process and the quality of the lecturers, Jaime mentioned other important points in relation to training, such as the international residential programs, as well as giving some tips for making the most out of the Virtual Campus.
During the presentation, the students took part in a group exercise focusing in their capacities and the changes they expect to occur after their time at EAE Business School. Then, Jorge Saiz, from the Professional Careers team, gave the students an overview of the work the department does in relation to employability and managing company internships. "We strive to enhance the employability of your profiles and improve your visibility". "It is essential to have a proactive attitude to tackle these challenges, embrace changes and capitalize on the opportunities we offer you through the Professional Careers service", he explained. He went on to give more details about the work his department does in relation to enhancing employability in three stages: Ready, Set and Go. "Every year, we strive to improve because the circumstances change, the market becomes more complex and we have to adapt to the needs of the employment market", added Jorge Saiz.
Sofía Ruiz, a lecturer on the Master in Financial Management then gave the presentation of the academic year and chatted with the new students. Directed by Javier Rivas, key features of the Master in Finance include tradition (EAE was the first business school in Spain to run such a program), the international residential program, professional prospects, the employability of graduates, the faculty of lecturers (university professors and professionals with real insight of the reality of the market) and the official status of the qualification. With respect to the methodology, Sofía emphasized the combination of practical learning and theoretical content. "We strive to ensure that students learn constantly and participate actively, with the support of the Virtual Campus". Peruvian student Miguel Muñoz chose this program because EAE was well positioned in the rankings. Miguel has resigned from his job and hopes to grow professionally within his own business.
The range of Minors, specialization programs
Magalí Riera, the Academic Director of the Madrid Campus gave the new arrivals an overview of the range of Minors offered by the School at the Joaquín Costa Campus. Magalí explained that these short specialization programs are designed to add cross-disciplinary knowledge to all the Masters. In this respect, she recommended choosing a Minor program that contributes in an individual way and complements the main field of study. During the session, she gave all the details in relation to deadlines, courses, timetables and qualifications.
Gonzalo Moreno then presented the Master in International Business. Mencía de Garcillán, the top rated lecturer in 2018 and the Director of the Master in Corporate Communication Management welcomed the new students on the second day of the Welcome EAE event.
Networking activities at Zielou Chamartín
The restaurant Zielou was the chosen venue for the networking session for students on Full-Time programs at the Madrid Campus. The afternoon event fostered interpersonal relations and networking. The speaker, a former student at EAE, welcomed the students by reminding them that "you are starting to build the future that others try to predict, and we are going to accompany you throughout the journey. We make it happen".
Ana Gabriela Carrera, a student on the Master in Supply Chain & Management, previously studied foreign trade. She got in touch with EAE because of the School's position in the rankings. She was particularly surprised by the information session and the Welcome EAE event. Ana would like to set up her own entrepreneurial venture. Her classmate on the program, Wendy Morales, is keen to learn about the other side of the supply chain. "I want to get a more global overview of the chain so that I can work my way up to a management position and find a good opportunity to develop professionally".
A Mexican student on the Master in Project Management, Marta Andrade really rated the registration process and the preparation for the Project Management Institute. Marta has a Bachelor Degree in Marketing and a Master in Business Administration. She has come to study at EAE to round off her profile, open up opportunities to take on new roles and embrace new challenges.

Daniel previously worked in banking for four years and needed a change in his professional life because he wants to work in a mass market multinational. With respect to Welcome EAE, he explained that "they are taking good care of us at EAE. All the communications have been very precise".
Creating connections and synergies between people on the same and other programs was the aim of a networking session with a photo call and hashtag included.
