Support services

EAE Business School gives its students access to a set of support services throughout their time at the School. These services include a welcome plan that starts as soon as the candidate enrols on their Master at EAE.
 
WELCOME PLAN FOR NEW STUDENTS
 
From the moment that a student enrols on a Master, EAE activates their welcome plan, which includes a series of activities and initiatives to help new students settle into the EAE Community. These activities include:
  • Welcome Week: this event runs for five days in the week before tuition starts, with a range of workshops designed for new students. These activities include a legal helpdesk for foreign students, round table panels on the education system and political and social environment in Spain, also for our international students, conferences and informal talks with the Program Director and key lecturers, guided tours of the city, workshops on the academic policy, procedures and regulations of the School and the URJC, etc. EAE’s Student Service Department organizes Welcome Week with the collaboration of various external companies.
  • Personalized guidance: every student has a personal advisor who guides them through the enrolment process and their arrival at the School, as well as helping them with any bureaucratic procedures the student may need to undertake. The advisors report to the Admissions Department and their guidance services start on the first day the student arrives at the School and continue until the student no longer needs them.
  • Program presentation: after Welcome Week, on the first day of tuition on the program, the Program Director of the Master gives a master presentation of the program, together with the teaching faculty. In addition, during the first few days of the program, the EAE Student Services Office pays close attention to the needs of new students, particularly those arriving from abroad, resolving any doubts they may have. Within this context, as well as the Program Director, there is also an Administrative Coordinator who gives personalized guidance.
Adicionalmente, durante los primeros días de curso, la Oficina de Servicios al estudiante de EAE presta una especial atención a las necesidades de los estudiantes de nueva incorporación, y sobre todo de los extranjeros, resolviendo cualquiera de las dudas que les pudieran surgir. En este orden de cosas, cabe destacar que, además de la figura del director del programa, existe un coordinador administrativo con funciones de asesoramiento personalizado.
 
SERVICES, ACTIVITIES AND FACILITIES OFFERED BY EAE
 
  • Professional Careers Department: EAE gives its students access to an Employment Exchange managed by the Professional Careers Department. EAE has close ties with companies and Human Resources and Recruitment consultants, which enables the School to keep current and former students informed of an extensive range of employment opportunities. This free service for students, alumni and Partner Companies and Organizations gives professionals the chance to join highly respected companies at a national and international level.

    The service given to the companies is equally important. EAE has direct links with a large number of companies that use the Employment Exchange to search for talent. A varied range of services are offered to companies, including consultancy on their staffing needs and the employment conditions they can offer, the Employment Exchange and Employability service (company workshops, cross-disciplinary competence sessions, Employment Forum, etc.).

Virtual Campus

With the aim of rounding off our students’ tuition, EAE has a Virtual Campus consisting of an intranet with online access and complementary service.
 
The Virtual Campus is a technological platform designed to give students access to all the academic resources and up-to-date information on the program. The intranet lets students access their academic records and other documents and resources related to the courses, such as: 
 
  • Documentation programmed by the faculty for tuition, notes, evaluations, academic materials and the digital library.

  • Useful links classified in categories: public administrations, libraries, research systems, economics, tourism, journals, etc

  • Useful articles for students and academics.

  • General announcements. The campus lets students look for general information, suppliers, e-commerce, software, etc.

  • Announcements of activities, events and conferences organized by EAE.

The management system and virtual learning platform uses Blackboard Mobile technology that enables students to access all its features from anywhere using any device, as it is fully optimized for mobile phones, tablets and other devices that work with Android, iOS or Blackberry.
 
BlackBoard Mobile is currently the platform used by internationally prestigious universities, such as Princeton, Stanford and Duke. In order to facilitate student learning, the functionalities incorporated in the Virtual Campus include Blackboard Elluminate (video tutorials, webinars and online group work), synchronization with Google Drive and Dropbox, a notification system so that students can keep informed and up-to-date, Wimba Chat (chats customized for group work) and BlackBoard IM (multi-user video conferences).
 
In short, this tool enables that the EAE Master is taught effectively, providing students with all the complementary virtual services they require.
