EAE Business School has been affiliated to the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya since the 1998-1999 academic year for the purpose of running MBA, Master and Degree courses adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) signed in Bologna. Under this agreement, all EAE programs run in Catalonia are given a dual qualification: the first awarded by EAE itself and the second granted by the UPC. The academic backing of one of Europe’s leading universities requires us to meet the highest standards of quality throughout all of our academic programs. Belonging to the UPC Community is one of our greatest strengths in terms of training technicians and executives.
