EADA is a business school with a unique background. It is an ideologically and financially independent institution. Its raison d’être and existence stem from the desire of a group of professionals to offer society excellent training. EADA is defined by its global vision and its belief in the values of equality, independence, personal development, and academic excellence. The people involved with EADA during the institution’s more than 50 years of history have changed, but our values have remained firmly at the heart of everything we do. EADA’s status as a private, non-profit foundation, governed by a trust, ensures our continuity and sustainability. Founded in Barcelona in 1957, EADA was set up in 1985 as a private university foundation engaging in training, applied research, and the transfer of knowledge to the business world and society in an international context.
