Annual Report

Annual Report

EAE presents the Annual Report for the 2015/2016 academic year with a very positive balance. Among the main milestones: the good employability of the students; the increased research activity by the School's different members and groups; the growing internationalisation both of the students and of the teaching staff and the different EAE partners around the world, and; the growth of the association of students and former students or Alumni. The high degree of collaboration with companies and partners is also worth mentioning, enhacing the students' networking with the institutions.
