In order to achieve comprehensive training throughout the students’ study program and in view of the general and practical focus of the qualification, the EAE University Centre runs the University-Company Educational Cooperation Program for students who decide to take the internship elective option. Organised through the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, this program enables all students who have attained over 50% of the credits on the study program to gain professional experience. The hours worked by the students, certified by the company, are eligible for academic accreditation, enabling students to obtain between 12 and 18 elective credits on their study program.
The Professional Careers Department is a service offered by EAE in relation to careers guidance and gaining employment, which aims to help students position themselves effectively when entering the labour market. The Professional Careers Department runs an employment exchange based on contact with companies and human resources selection consultants.

Our Company Services are equally important: the EAE University Centre has direct links with over 400 companies that use the employment exchange to search for candidates. There are several services that we offer to companies. We assess their needs in terms of incorporating qualified staff and the employment conditions that the can offer. We also provide an employment exchange service and give companies the chance to take part in activities related to gaining employment (company workshops, cross-sector skills workshops, employment forum etc.)
