Every great experience deserves a great finale, as it is crucial for every leader to consolidate what they have learned before moving forward. The students of EAE Business School are well aware of this fact and, with this in mind, over the last few days, they have been presenting their Master’s Theses as the culmination of their programs with the characteristic enthusiasm of professionals prepared to lead the future.
From very early in the morning right through to late evening, the campuses in both Barcelona and Madrid were all geared up to welcome the students to present their Theses. Adhering to all the hygiene and safety protocols, both campuses used several different classrooms and waiting rooms to ensure that the students could present their projects with absolute normality.
“EAE has always been a School that is able to rise to the occasion in times of uncertainty”, explained the Director of EAE’s Evaluation Department, Dr. Harold Torrez. He went on to say that the School “always implements fast, robust measures designed with students in mind. As well as the online training mechanisms implemented during the lockdown, this also applies to the presentation of the Master’s Theses, ensuring that students have the option to do it in an in-person, online or even hybrid format”.
“For me, EAE Business School means adaptability”
““The day is finally here!”. This was one of the most commonly heard expressions among the students coming to the campus on Thursday 2nd July. As well as presenting their Master’s Theses, the day also marked their return to the campus and the first time they had met up with their classmates after many long months of lockdown.
Throughout the day, they kept arriving at the campuses in line with the schedule. In the case of Diego Ramos, a student on the Master in Corporate Communication Management in Barcelona, his presentation was at 6 o’clock, so he decided to get there early and catch up with his classmates in the waiting room.
“The thing that motivated me to study at EAE was the other classmates’ experience, as well as the courses. In terms of the program, I am really pleased, as not only have we been given a good grounding in communication, but also in marketing, which gives us a broad range of professional prospects”, explained Ramos.
Moreover, Peruvian student Diego explained that, although he could not reveal much about his Master’s Theses for confidentiality reasons, the general outline of the project was an internal communication plan that he had developed with two classmates. “The support that the School has given throughout the development of the project has been really positive. There has been a lot of communication, even using WhatsApp”. Before entering the classroom to give his presentation, Ramos summed up his experience by saying that “For me, EAE means adaptability. Not only have they demonstrated a great capacity for adaptation during the pandemic, but also they have helped me adapt again to studying, research and knowledge”.
Verónica Poveda, a student on the Master in International Business, described her experience of the Master’s Thesis as very well organized, adding that she was put at ease by the jury, who were very approachable. The title of her project is “I Garage”, which she describes as a “technological door system that scans your registration plate, verifies your status in 5 seconds and gives you or blocks your access to the car park. The key feature is that you do not need anything or any tickets. The system does it all automatically”.
With respect to her reasons for studying at EAE, she emphasized the School’s reputation as one of the main deciding factors. “There was also the cultural side of things, which was one of the aspects I liked most about my Master. There were 54 students, but 36 different nationalities. That was really great and enriching”.
Lastly, she explained that, during the pandemic, she felt supported by the School thanks to the daily emails she received, as well as through the legal and psychological services support services offered to all the students.
The presentation of the Master’s Theses will continue for another two weeks in person, online or in a hybrid format. Meanwhile, the School will finish off preparing its engines for the start of a new academic year.
