EAE Business School is convening the 2ND EAE BACCALAUREATE AWARDS: IDEAS FOR THE NEW ECONOMY in order to stimulate students' research spirit and creativity in enterprise, and to offer teachers the chance to contribute to the discussion on the new economy and to give a practical meaning to their teaching work.
In view of the current state of the economy and society, which are immersed in such profound reconsiderations as that of the very model of economic growth and progress or society's system of values, at the present time a spokesperson is needed for the young and their new initiatives to be able to be developed naturally and in freedom. Assuming that the present business and educational model is unable to give a solution, we launch the second research award for young students in the hope of supporting them as tomorrow's agents of change.
Some of the areas from which this new economy can be approached are:
1. Innovation in products and services for a better world.
2. Proposals of collaboration and joint work between the public and private sectors to enrich the economy.
3. Attention to diversity and globalisation for a fairer society.
4. Use and promotion of creativity for resourceless surroundings.
This competition is open individually to all second-year Social Science Baccalaureate students, those on the last year of the Higher Grade Training Cycles of Administration and Finance or Commercial Management and Marketing in centres of education in Spain.
The works must deal with topics of the economic surroundings or the world of enterprise in any of its areas (Finance, Marketing, Entrepreneuring... etc). In particular, they have to be new and original, not awarded in any other competition and must include the bibliography used and the corresponding quotes both of texts and illustrations or photographs, when they include ideas or materials from others.
