Other key aspects of the Master include the tuition sessions on the Program, which are based around innovation workshops and experiences, as well as conferences given by highly-respected and successful entrepreneurs from different sectors (IT, eCommerce and startups in general), in which students can get direct feedback on their own ideas. Moreover, students have the option to participate in the activities on EAE’s Alumni Emprende Program, as well as accessing organizations specializing in the entrepreneurial model.

The program is directed by Ignacio Santamartina, Financial Director at Berkeley Minera Spain, Project Director at IDIMAS Gestión, and Director of the Fundación Bases, a non-profit organziation specializing in the entrepreneurial world.
