The Full Time study mode of the programs offered by EAE Business School is characterized by a diversity of students, whose professional career has been analysed in the fourth edition of the Employment Report. Thanks to the Report, we can discover the student profile, their place of origin, the competences in the highest demand and the impact their time at the School has had on their professional career, among other features.

EAE Business School offers a total of 23 programs in this study mode, which are characterized by tuition five days a week, with a morning or afternoon timetable. MBA, General Management, Marketing and Sales, Finance and Accounting, Logistics and Operations, Communication and Human Resources are the seven categories into which the different programs are divided, including the MBA, International MBA, Master of International Business, Master in Marketing and Commercial Management, Master in Stock and Financial Markets, Master in Supply Chain Management & Logistics, Master in Corporate Communication Management and Master in Human Resources Management, among others

Sociodemographic profile of the Full Time students

As is the case with the Executive programs, the Full Time programs are also characterized by a balanced proportion of men and women, although female students exceed their male counterparts by a few percentage points (46% men and 54% women). The Report estimates that the average age of Full Time students is around 28 years and, in terms of professional experience, the Full Time students have worked up to four years in the field.

The Employment Report 2017 also reveals multicultural diversity in our classrooms. From all five continents, EAE students come from as many as 95 different countries:

  • More than half the Full Time students (56.5%) come from the countries in the Americas (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, the USA, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay, among others).
  • 31.1% come from Europe (countries such as Albania, Germany, Belgium, Cyprus, Croatia, Spain, France, Greece, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Romania and Ukraine, among others).
  • 7.6% come from Asia (countries like Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, China, the Philippines, India, Iran, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Qatar, Russia and Turkey, among others).
  • 3.6% come from Africa (countries such as Angola, Cameroon, the Ivory Coast, Egypt, Gambia, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia, among others).
  • 1.1% come from Oceania (Australia and New Zealand).

Professional career after their time at EAE

84% of Full Time students state that the Master they took at the School has prepared them to perform effectively in their current job, while 72% state that they have received new professional offers after their time at the School. In fact, 37.1% say that the EAE program has had an important impact on their professional career.

In terms of the competences and capacities acquired, 92% of students on Full Time programs state that, thanks to their Master, they have increased their ability to detect new opportunities, while 91% of graduates enhanced their decision-making capacities and autonomy.

Other statistics revealed by the Employment Report refer to the increase in professional responsibilities, with 79% reporting growth in this respect, while 66% of the students state that their salary improved after their time at EAE.

Events and networking to enhance employability

74% of students say that they have left EAE with a useful network of professional contact. This achievement is partly due to the wide range of employability activities organized by the Professional Careers Department, which takes charge of guiding and accompanying students to achieve their objective.

In the Start my career phase, they focus on enhancing the professional careers of junior profiles with a maximum of four years’ experience in management (through guidance and an employability workshop), while, in the GO phase, the focus is placed on professional visibility with recruiting companies. In 2017, the different events and conferences organized include the following:

  • Online Employment Forum: An annual meeting point where students can apply for selection processes at leading companies in their sector. In the latest edition, more than 80 companies took part, posting almost 2,000 employment offers to work all over the world.
  • Opportunity Bank, with access to EAE’s Employment Portal, with more than 4,000 partner companies that posted over 6,000 employment and internship offers in 2017.
  • Talent Week EAE: a week of employability activities including Company Meetings and workshops. In 2017, more than 70 companies took part in the week at both the Madrid and Barcelona Campuses
  • International Talent Program, aimed at students who want to gain international professional development, with the aim of giving them the maximum visibility among the multinational companies, through activities such as Employment Workshops, interviews with headhunters and access to international recruitment consultants in different parts of the world.
