EAE Business School in 2009 created the Strategic Research Center, our research centre, with the mission of analysis and market research for its strategic application in companies and their environment, and thus to provide knowledge to key areas of business management. Since it was created, more than one hundred projects have been carried out, requested by more than four thousand institutions of all fields and the main media.

he Strategic Research Centre has three lines of own research:

  1. Perspectives, intended to analyse the main economic and social issues today in Spain and in the world. 

  2. Faculty Research, used by the teaching staff to present their findings and research.

  3. Briefing Research, in which students and alumni present their research works tutored by members of the Strategic Research Center.
