The EAE campus in Madrid was founded in 2006 and has been in its current location since September 2013. The EAE Madrid campus is at Calle Joaquín Costa 41, in the financial heart of Madrid and very near the Nuevos Ministerios – Paseo de la Castellanaaxis and Calle Serrano. We now also have two new headquarters in Madrid: one at Calle Príncipe de Vergara, 108 and the other at Calle Príncipe de Vergara, 156.
The new building has approximately 4,000 square metres distributed over five floors, a terrace and a private garden. Its facilities include 24 study or teaching rooms, 10 multifunctional rooms for co-working, meetings and videoconferences, an events hall with seating for up to 100 people, reading room and library, cafeteria and different places for student attention.
Of the new students, 48% are from Europe, 45% from Latin America, 4% from Africa, 1.5% from Asia and a further 1.5% from North America. 53% of the students are women and 47% men.

NEW BUILDING ON THE MADRID CAMPUS
The EAE Business School Madrid campus currently has two buildings and now brings in a new building of 3,690 m² at Príncipe de Vergara nº 156, one of the most representative areas of the financial centre of Madrid. The building has five floors above ground, with glass facades allowing natural light to come into all of the accessible spaces, regardless of their position. It also has garage floors underground.
The building has 16 multimedia rooms distributed over four floors, which contain the latest educational technology for optimal learning. The library and work areas together have an approximate capacity of more than 200 m. The building also has 12 multipurpose rooms for meetings, activities and tutorials throughout the building and equipped with all kinds of furniture and equipment.
MARK THE DIFFERENCE: EMPLOYABILITY, ENTREPRENEURING AND INTERNATIONALISATION
In 2017, EAE started up a study plan based on the North American major and minor system, replacing the traditional method of optional subject choice, in order to remain at the forefront of training and allow students to personalise their own study route. The majors are official or own Masters programs formed by a series of credits spread between the study plan and the final work of the master’s degree, whereas the minors are short programs focused on a specific area of knowledge that may or may not be related to the area of the major.
EAE thus offers its Full Time and Executive students on the Barcelona campus 34 minors in the areas of Marketing, Communication and Sales, Stock Market, Finance and Accounting, Logistics Operations, Human Resources and General Management, whereas the Madrid campus offers 32 minors in the same areas of knowledge.
EAE Business School also develops broad work in research, teaching innovation and dissemination through different activities amongst which there is especially the publication of the Harvard Deusto Business Research, which has an international scientific committee with members from different Spanish universities and the world; participation in congresses with talks and publication of research articles, chapters in books, books and the organisation of congresses.
The school has research groups such as the Interdisciplinary Group in Tourism (GRIT-EAE) and that of Communication closely linked to marketing which includes public relations, protocol, advertising, internal communication, non-verbal communication, digital and metrics. There is also the Teaching Innovation Group (GID-EAE), with the aim of improving the teaching and developing research into teaching practices in the context of the teaching of business administration.
Furthermore, employability is one of the great features of EAE so from the area of Professional Careers, more than 6,000 offers of practice and work were managed this year, 1,486 students applied for and did practice and more than 1,600 agreements were signed with companies. The students were able to take part in professional advisory activities and more than 300 workshops were held on employability and the personal brand.
In this sense, one project to be especially highlighted is EAE Emprende, a transversal training service focused on entrepreneuring that is set out over informative cycles, workshops and sessions with expert investors to prepare financial projects, and also on search options for obtaining financing. Other services include the Legal Classroom, which gives the main legal keys to starting an entrepreneuring project, and the Business Angels Academy to report the latest trends in start-up investment.
Within EAE Emprende, an accelerator of innovative projects, EAE Lab, was launched to enhance, develop and accompany the enterprising ideas of students and former students in their gestation process.
Other events which make EAE a bridge between the professional and academic world are the Online Employment Forum; the Bank of Opportunities with more than 6,000 job offers published each year, and; the International Talent Program, aimed at students who seek international development and visibility in multinational companies, with workshops and interviews with head-hunters from different parts of the world.
